Ranger heading to France?
According to reports in New Zealand, Blues centre Rene Ranger is set for a switch to Top 14 outfit Montpellier at the end of the Super Rugby season.
Sky's Reunion program broadcast the news, with the 26-year-old having recently been handed greater responsibility for the Auckland franchise.
This week Ranger faces off with New Zealand outside centre rival Robbie Freuan in the Blues versus Crusaders derby clash at Eden Park.
And with Tamati Ellison injured, Richard Kahui leaving for Japan and Sonny Bill Williams now in Australia, it is viewed as strange timing to move.
