Chiefs and All Black midfielder Richard Kahui has announced that he will leave New Zealand at the end of the Super Rugby season to play in Japan.

The injury-prone backline ace has confirmed he will play for the Japanese Toshiba club for two seasons after seeing out the 2013 season with the Chiefs.

"I love being a Chief, but it is no secret that I have had my fair share injuries which have forced me to make some very hard decisions about my future and make the most of the opportunities while I can," Kahui told the Waikato Times.

Chiefs' coach Dave Rennie said: "Richard has been an outstanding member of the Chiefs family, having played over 50 games for us.

"I have been really impressed with him as a man, as a player and as a leader within our group.

"He has an opportunity to set himself up for his future and we are fully supportive of what he is doing and hope to get him back for 2015."

Kahui has played 17 Tests for the All Blacks since his debut in 2008, scoring 10 tries.
