Very unlikely to tempt him away from the cusp of the All Blacks. Great player though, so dynamic and versatile; and doesn't let size adversely affect his defence.
A realistic option from Super Rugby may be Ihia West or Piers Francis, both of the Blues. Both good players without being that top level international quality (yet). I would favour West but Francis, being English, would probably be the one Premiership clubs will target, however, the caveat with that is that Tana Umaga rates him highly having taken him from the Turbos in the NPC to the Blues.
