With the departure of the wing to Bordeaux, the Wellington team will have a vacancy and speculation began with the return of Julian Savea after an idea and return with his brother, Ardiem on Twitter.
The family back has been training with a local Auckland club since returning from France, but has not been playing a game.

Ardie Savea’s enigmatic “See you soon” tweet he posted to a response from his brother to a move of his own in the weekend win over Crusaders, may just be an indication that his older brother is planning to visit his hometown, But many Hurricane fans hope his return to the team is being prepared.
Should he return, Julian would join Nehe Milner-Skudder and Dan Carter as the third All Black to potentially join a leading club in Super Rugby Aotearoa.
