Ioane was part of the 2011 Reds side that beat the Crusaders in the final and he scored a try in that match.

The Wellington born winger has been troubled by knee injuries throughout his career and is nearing the end of his careerbut the Crusaders need replacements for Nadolo and Johnny McNicholl.

Ioane left the Reds in 2013 and played for Stade Francais for two seasons and then moved to to Japan to play for Honda Heat.
