Chiefs flanker Lachlan Boshier, Hurricanes midfielder Vince Aso and a fellow New Zealander, Mark Abbott, are the latest signings for the Panasonic Wild Knights in the Japanese Top League.
Abbott is already in Japan, plying his trade with the Coca-Cola Red Sparks, but Aso and Boshier will be commencing new chapters in Japan.
Boshier, known for his fantastic ability at the breakdown, has signed a two-year deal.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time with the Gallagher Chiefs,” he said. “There is a great group of people involved with the club, the team, staff and fans are outstanding.
“I am exceptionally thankful to the coaching staff, especially Barnsey (Neil Barnes). The work they do is immense and has allowed me to develop into the player I am today.
“While I am sad to leave the Gallagher Chiefs, I am excited for the new challenge ahead. It is a great opportunity, and I will be looking forward to embracing the Japanese culture.”
