Evergreen All Black lock Brad Thorn is in no hurry to hang up his boots and is eyeing another Super Rugby season with the Highlanders.

The 38-year-old admitted he longs for a break after a long and challenging Super Rugby season, but hopes his contract with the Dunedin franchise will be finalised in the "next few days".

"I'm keen to play some more footy. I feel pretty good, but I just need a break,'' he told the Border Mail.

''It would be nice to have a break like everybody else. It would just be nice to feel that excitement and hunger.

''I've had a crazy amount of footy, especially in the last two and a half years, and that was backed up by a lot of footy before that too.

"If you think about ... the Crusaders and no home games, the All Blacks and the World Cup and 24 years since we'd won it. Some guys had three months off while I went straight to Japan, then to Leinster and then back to Japan and then into a tough old season, probably the toughest of my career.

''I just need a break, it's that simple.''
