New Zealand scrum-half Tawera Kerr-Barlow will leave Chiefs to join La Rochelle at the end of the Super Rugby season. The 26-year-old playmaker, who won his 25th cap for the All Blacks against Italy last November, has agreed a three-year deal with the Top 14 leaders. Aaron Cruden decided to turn his back on the world champions and Chiefs to join Montpellier later this year and Kerr-Barlow has also opted to take up a new challenge in France.
