All black wing george bridge approaches

RMC SPORT INFO – New Zealand international winger George Bridge (27 caps), defending champions against France last November, is on his way to joining Montpellier. An agreement could have been reached between the various parties this summer, with an expected arrival in a few weeks.

It will be a weight booster for your MHR. According to information from RMC Sport, the French champions have discreetly approached New Zealand international winger George Bridge (27 years old, 12 tries in 19 selections with the All Blacks, last November during the defeat against the Blues at the Stade de France).

Not picked by Ian Foster’s management for this summer’s fixtures, the Gisborne native has now asked himself questions less than a year after the World Cup. The Chiefs once showed interest in recruiting him, but to no avail because the player preferred a foreign destination. His autobiography has been published in several countries, including England and Japan, but an agreement is said to have since been reached with the Human Rights Ministry last month.

Montpellier, new home for the All Blacks?

Montpellier, which has been separated from several big contracts for a few months, has the advantage of being able to count on the good relations between Mohamed El Trad and the New Zealand Confederation. The head of MHR is, remember, the sponsor of the All Blacks via his construction group. Thus, the bridge (1.85m, 95kg) will imitate his compatriot Karl Twinkow, the pole with 28 picks, expected on October 1.

Last season, Bridge was used regularly at the Crusaders with 16 game sheets, but only half as a starter. During the Super Rugby final which the Blues won, he had to be content with a place as a substitute. Since his debut with the New Zealand franchise in 2017, he will have scored 37 tries.
