Crusaders and All Blacks wing Sevu Reece, and Blues flyer Mark Telea, will play for the New Zealand provincial champions, Tasman in the Mitre 10 Cup this year.

Reece and Telea have left Waikato and North Harbour respectively and will join Crusaders David Havili, Will Jordan, and Leicester Fainga’anuku ahead of the season, which kicks off on September 11.

Including his eight tries in 12 appearances this year, Reece has scored 23 tries in 26 appearances since the Crusaders initially signed him as an injury replacement for Israel Dagg ahead of the 2019 Super Rugby season.

Telea, arguably the most elusive runner in Super Rugby, has chalked up seven tries in an impressive rookie season for the revitalised Blues.

The Crusaders will take on the Highlanders at 3.35pm Sunday while the Hurricanes will face the Chiefs at 7.05pm Saturday.
