Mils to move to Zebre

Connacht's marquee signing Mils Muliaina will move to Italian club Zebre in the summer.

The 34 year-old arrived out West as the first All Black to be signed by the province on a one-year deal.

The international centurion season has been interrupted by injury and he has been limited to ten appearances, nine of them from the start.

"Even in one quick year, Mils has made a lasting contribution to Connacht Rugby," said coach Pat Lam.

"His influence on and off the field with our young squad has been invaluable and I know the players, particularly the backs, have benefited from his vast experience.

"A big part of our growth as a team this season has been around challenging each other to reach higher standards and Mils was massive in driving this.

"He has really embraced the Connacht culture and I know the supporters have enjoyed meeting and getting to know him."
