Gary Hooper signs for New Zealand club.

Yeh, would make a half decent scrum half I would imagine😉

The Phoenix 😂 I'd imagine with his finishing he should be able to make an impact there as it's a league with a lot of goals scored. Six out of the 10 teams make the playoffs so always something to play for. Wellington is a nice compact city as if a little windy and lots to see in Oz and NZ.

He looks like he's slimmed down a bit from that picture actually!

My cousin lives in Wellington and I desperately want to go back to NZ some day. Lovely place! Had a nice couple of meals at Midnight Espresso in Wellington back when I toured around NZ for a while.

So Hooper had about 30 percent more starts, but scored 600 percent more goals.

He actually scored 2, tap in away to Rotherham in the cup. I witnessed it, almost died of shock.

Don't blame him really, his options domestically can't have been too exciting or lucrative. 

He's 31, why not go and have a couple of years banging them in and enjoying yourself. He's made his money, as long as he's been sensible with it.

Iran would have been a weird choice but NZ would be a nice place to stay after his playing career, coaching or something. 

If I were Gary Hooper I'd choose that over Hibs or Sunderland which was probably the level of the offers he'd get here now with his injury record.
