Donnelly signs with Crusaders

12:07 pm on 1 September 2011

The fifteen-test All Black lock Tom Donnelly will join the Crusaders in their Super rugby campaign next year.

Donnelly's spent the past seven years with the Highlanders but struggled for game time this year, with Josh Bekhuis and Jarrad Hoeta ahead of him.

Donnelly's signed a one year deal with the Crusaders who've lost veterans Brad Thorn and Chris Jack, who're seeing out their playing careers in Japan.
