NEWS: All Blacks and Blues prop Charlie Faumuina has confirmed he is moving to France at the end of next year's Super Rugby Season to play for Toulouse.

Faumuina said it was a "very tough decision" for him and his family to make but added he was excited at the opportunity.

"I would just like to thank New Zealand Rugby, the Blues and Auckland Rugby, for everything they have done for me throughout my career," Faumuina told allblacks.com.

"I'm looking forward to my last season in New Zealand, making it a successful one with the Blues and hopefully getting the chance to play for the All Blacks in the New Zealand Lions Series."

Faumuina made his Super Rugby debut in 2009 and his All Blacks debut in 2012 and has played 46 Tests for the All Blacks.
