PRO12 Star Turns Down Contract Offer To Sign With Super Rugby Giants
Ospreys forward Tyler Ardron is set to join New Zealand Super Rugby giants the Chiefs.
The Welsh region revealed on Monday that the forward is among a number of players set to leave the PRO12 club at the end of the current season.
On Wednesday, Canadian national team Mark Anscombe confirmed reports that Ardron was headed to the Southern Hemisphere and the Chiefs.
“That competition will be one that will suit him and take his game to the next level,” said Anscombe.
“You look at the company he’s going to be keeping, training with and playing against every week. When you’re in that environment, you can only improve.”
The move has yet to be officially announced by the Chiefs.
