All Blacks great Sir John Kirwan believes TJ Perenara should not have been re-signed by New Zealand Rugby when he returned from Japan.

Perenara, the All Blacks midfielder and former captain with the Hurricanes, currently playing in the Japanese Top League with the Red Hurricanes, opted to take a short-term overseas contract late last year.

Springbok’s other famous signing Makazole Mapimpi has rejuvenated a small Japanese team, long underdogs in the league.

In spite of the team’s progress and the influential performance of Peranara, the Red Hurricanes were still unable to beat Yamaha Jubilo – one of the tougher teams in the competition – over the weekend, by a loss of 33-21.

Perenara said last year his move to Japan “doesn’t mean it’s the end for me” in New Zealand, but Kirwan believes NZ Rugby should think twice about signing the 69 All Black caps.

“You can’t resign from Perenara. You can’t resign,” Kirwan said on Sky Sport’s Breakdown. “I love that man, don’t get me wrong. But who do you want to keep?

Because I think there are some young players coming and for the next World Cup I just thought [they need a shot]. Look, I’m excited to sign him but if it’s a case of signing some of the young players who will get us to the next World Cup, as well and further afield, then I think he will. [left out]. “

Over the years, TJ Perenara has been a defensive midfielder behind Aaron Smith at the All Blacks, but Kirwan says this could be a time to allow some young players, such as Folau Fakatava of the Highlanders, to get their chance.

“If you think about TJ, he’s a great waiter, [but] he entered the twilight of his career. And for me, there are people starting to pile up who will give us two more World Cups. “

Kirwan added that in a perfect world, Peranara would have to be re-signed upon her return, but factors such as NZ Rugby’s limited resources and future talent development need to be considered.

Perenara Red Storm, who finished third at their conference, are still in the race for the Japanese Top League with a 4-2 record, but face stiff competition in their subsequent bout against All Black-stacked heavyweights Kobelco Steelers, featuring Brodie Retallick’s Aaron Cruden and Ben Smith.
