WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- Former New Zealand winger Zac Guildford has signed a three-year contract with French club Clermont Auvergne.
The 24-year-old played the last of his 10 tests for New Zealand in 2012 but now seems unlikely to reclaim a test place.
His career has been soured by several alcohol-related incidents, including a 2011 case when he was arrested in the Cook Islands over a drunken assault.
Guildford's Hawke's Bay province confirmed his signing and Clermont Auvergne was expected to announce details later Thursday.
He will take the place of another former All Blacks winger, Sitiveni Sivivatu, who has left Clermont to join Castres.
