Kaino to join Blues this week?

7:41 am on 24 February 2014

Former All Black enforcer Jerome Kaino is expected back in New Zealand this week to link up with his old Super Rugby franchise the Blues.

Kaino's Toyota have been knocked out of the All-Japan Championship, beaten 24-21 by Toshiba, meaning the 30-year-old is free to return home.

It was former Chiefs first five David Hill who broke the deadlock, his drop-goal two minutes from time handing Toshiba the win.
