O'Neill: joining the Rebels

Sky Bet

Melbourne Rebels are set to add another international to their roster by snapping up Kevin O'Neill from the Chiefs.

The lock, who has been capped by the All Blacks, has been sidelined for the majority of the season - however he is expected to now join the likes of Greg Somerville, Hoani MacDonald, Danny Cipriani, Cooper Vuna, Stirling Mortlock, Julian Huxley, Gareth Delve and Adam Freier at the Rebels.

The departure of O'Neill, who follows Sione Lauaki in leaving the Hamilton franchise, will open the door for Culum Retallick to continue his development in the Chiefs' engine room.
