Ngani Laumape signs for Stade Francais

All Black and Hurricanes centre Ngani Laumape has signed for French TOP14 club Stade Francais. 

The news comes after the Hurricanes and New Zealand Rugby had confirmed that TJ Perenara would be returning to the Canes on a two and half year deal. 

Laumape, who has played 15 times for the All Blacks is one of five new signings at Stade Francais ahead of next season with England sevens international Harry Glover,  French International prop Clément Castets, South African tighthead prop Nemo Roelofse and lock Romain Briatte.

28-year-old Laumape ends his five-year stint with the Hurricanes having joined the side after switching codes in 2016.

He made his test debut for the All Blacks in 2017 against the British and Irish Lions. Laumape went on to make 13 appearances for the All Blacks between 2017 and 2019 but ultimately missed out on the Rugby World Cup squad.

He made two appearances last year for the All Blacks, both against Australia. 

He heads to Paris having made over 60 appearances for the Hurricanes scoring more than 20 tries.
