Former All Blacks prop Neemia Tialata has been left out of Wellington's 23 for tomorrow's ITM Cup match against Canterbury.

Tialata told his Twitter followers earlier this month he'd be playing only two games for Wellington before joining Bayonne in France.

But a Wellington spokesperson says Tialata is being rested after a heavy workload since the start of the Super Rugby season in February.
