Chiefs coach Dave Rennie's plans to push off overseas seem to be firming.
He has been touted as someone to add to the All Black panel however that may have to wait until after the next World Cup.
"I have always talked about going overseas just to experience different culture and so on and so I am pretty keen to do that when my contract runs out here in 2017," Rennie told Radio Sport's The Crowd Goes Wild Breakfast.
"I think from An All Black point of view Steve Hansen will stay anyway and that will be a good move from New Zealand Rugby. They are going well and defending champions so why push someone out the door?
"I think he will stay until the next World Cup and then there will be a number of people putting their hand up."
Rennie was discussing a range of topics as the Chiefs point their attention towards Wellington on Saturday night and their match with the Hurricanes.
It would be some clash and he hoped the match would match those expectations.
Motivation was not a problem for these games because of the personal and collective matchups in what should be a high-paced highly physical duel. Rennie got more nervous when his side had to play a side like the Kings.
