Jamie Mackintosh Joining Pau

Jamie Mackintosh was always going to be playing rugby outside the United States after his season with the Ohio Aviators came to an end but instead of returning to his native New Zealand he's off to join Pau in the Top 14 on a medical joker. A combination of Mackintosh being left out of the Southland Mitre 10 Cup squad and Pau needing help on the front-row made it a win-win situation.

Mackintosh was a huge part of Ohio's success this past season and was arguably the best prop in the competition. He also provided valuable leadership to the Aviators and helped the team gel as a cohesive unit. The door is still open on a return to Ohio next season but for now he's off to France to join fellow former All Blacks Colin Slade, Tom Taylor, and Conrad Smith
