All Black heading to Clermont
- 02 Jan 2014
All Black and Crusaders wing Zac Guildford has reportedly signed a deal with French Top 14 club Clermont.
French newspaper L'Equipe is reporting that the 24-year-old speedster will join the club on a two-year-deal, replacing the former All Black, Sitiveni Sivivatu.
Guildford was part of the All Blacks’ 2011 World Cup-winning squad, but he was cited for a number of drunken incidents following the tournament. He has recently been playing with the Crusaders, Hawke’s Bay and the NZ Maoris.
