All Black star signs with Stade Francais
NEWS: Chiefs and All Blacks scrumhalf Brad Weber will join Stade Francais next season, the French Top 14 side announced on Tuesday.
The Chiefs’ Weber, 32, is expected to join the Paris-based side after this year’s Rugby World Cup, with the final on October 28 in the French capital.
Stade Francais did not disclose the length of Weber’s contract but he will replace the retiring ex-France scrum-half Morgan Parra and Racing 92-bound half-back James Hall.
