He headed to France in the summer of 2014 to link up with Montpellier in the French top tier before heading to Pau in May 2015 for a two-year spell.

King retired at the end of the 2016-17 season at French TOP14 outfit Pau. He returned to New Zealand with his family and began helping out with the Crusaders.

At 36-years old, King was named in the Crusaders squad for the first round of 2018 Super Rugby.

King featured in 8 of the Crusaders 19 Super Rugby matches during the 2018 season.
