Ben Smith has confirmed he's leaving the All Blacks.
The fullback has announced he'll join French club Pau after next year's Rugby World Cup in Japan.
The 32-year-old took to social media to inform Highlanders fans of his big move.
"Hey team just thought I would let you know that my family and I are heading over to France at the end of next year," said Smith.
"It's been a tough decision, but we are looking forward to a new challenge. The Highlanders, Otago and the All Blacks have been teams that I have always dreamed of playing for.
"I feel pretty privileged to have played for all those teams, but first off looking forward to a big 2019 and the challenges that that brings."
Smith is a two-time Rugby World Cup winner who's played 75 Tests for New Zealand.
The All Blacks confirmed the news today.
