It appears the new Highlanders coach Jamie Joseph won't be pandering to any of his players as he tries to finalise a squad for next year's Super 15.

Just two weeks into the job, Joseph has gained the services of Canterbury first five Colin Slade for next year, in a move he hopes will help others make a decision about their future.

Highlanders flanker Adam Thomson says he wants to be in a winning franchise and is considering moving to the Crusaders to try and resurrect his All Black career.

Joseph says whatever decision Thomson makes will be good for him and for the Highlanders.
