Could still be space, depends if they see him/Debreczini as 15 option to. Looking at Chiefs discussion page, heaps of spots available for 2019 across all positions in backs except 9.

RE: 2018 New Zealand Schools
Probably just from watching school finals as they developed over those months. I doubt Aussie Rugby have the money to send school players to a centralised location to train. WTG may have allowed them to keep more tabs on fitness levels etc though through those months where as NZ may have bit more faith in their schools programmes. Similar with Wallabies & Super Rugby coaches versus NZ.
RE: NH club rugby
@stargazer Confirmed from Connacht/IRFU Reece contract has been torn up.
RE: Otago v Bay of Plenty
Definitely has the potential to be a great Super Rugby player, he’ll be in and around the squad but another year with NZ 20’s & M10 before Super Rugby wont hurt. Love how he keeps things straight & attacks the line constantly, better first five defender than most. Looks to be trying too hard to win like most Steamers at the moment, hopefully they can just let loose against Southland and will see his best. Goal kicking definitely a major work on struggled at Jock Hobbs as well as M10.

Kini Naholo not released by Taranaki?
Not "poached", but playing for the Magpies:
Whatever happened to Jeriah Mua? Thought he'd gone to BOP, but haven't seen him in any squad for the seeding games. Injured?
Did his ankle in pre-season for BOP 19's. Miracle Lolofie another who went HBHS.
