Cory Jane says 'sayonara' to Wellington


Jane has signed a two-year contract with Toshiba in Tokyo.

He will head to Japan at the end of the Super Rugby season, where he will join former All Blacks Richard Kahui and Liam Messam as well as Chiefs number eight Michael Leitch.

"I'm looking forward to playing in Japan and to experiencing a new culture and taking on a new challenge," Jane said.

"It was important to me that I honoured the remaining year on my Hurricanes contract and of course that I was sure I was doing what was best for my family. To have achieved both of those things is great."
