Another day, another All Black looks to be heading offshore as Highlanders coach Jamie Joseph has indicated that Adam Thomson will end his All Blacks career for an overseas switch.
Thomson's future has been the subject of speculation with his contract with the NZRU set to expire.
The influential All Blacks flanker is thought to have been considering following in many other players' footsteps with a lucrative move to Japan.
And unless Thomson, who was reported to be a target for the Blues for the 2013 Super Rugby season, makes a last-minute signing then Joseph is resigned to losing most of his most valuable players.
New Zealand Super Rugby teams are expected to unveil their 28 protected players next week and Joseph is not expected to include Thomson in this mix.If this is the case that means Thompson may play his last game on New Zealand soil for Otago when they take on Counties Manukau in the NPC championship final tonight.
