I just picked up a rumour that Luatua was quitting Bristol and heading back to where he belongs to qualify for for AB's RWC 2019.

Anybody care to confirm /deny?

Seems to be nothing about this anywhere. Doesn't seem likely he was head hunted by the God Squad to go to Bristol, would be odd to bail so soon unless he is homesick.

He's on something like a million $NZD a year. Why would he pass that up for a few more test caps? Maybe Hansen has promised him the no.8 post-RWC? If he did come back he's be very handy. And the unhappiest man in NZ would be Akira Ioane.

He didn't sound like he was considering coming back in this interview posted last week.

it's been brought up once or twice in rumour columns of papers here that Luatua was on his way out of Bristol, and that Bristol were lining up Victor Vito as a replacement
