Hay­man for Tens

The Timaru Herald - - SPORT -

For­mer All Black Carl Hay­man will come out of re­tire­ment and play for French Top 14 club Pau at next month’s Bris­bane Global Rugby Tens. The 45-test prop was un­veiled yes­ter­day as the team’s ‘‘mys­tery All Blacks le­gend’’, which the club had mar­keted when nam­ing the rest of their squad for the tour­na­ment on Fri­day. Hay­man wore the black jer­sey be­tween 2001 and 2007 and was rated as the best tight­head go­ing around, be­fore head­ing off­shore and at one point re­port­edly be­ing the high­est paid player in the world, go­ing from the Newcastle Fal­cons to Toulon.
