We know about Adesanya now, but will he start an exodus of our top athletes living and competing here?  

Adesanya says he's moving to the US - the MIQ situation, increased difficulty to train and prepare for fights a couple of reasons cited, and he won't fight in New Zealand ever.  

We know the frustrations from the likes of Ryan Fox and Hayden Wilde who are overseas - and Paige Harrab who wants to travel the world to do her job but can't guarantee getting back in.  

Is this the beginning of something? Have we driven our athletes that aren't in the All Blacks too far?  

Director at Esportif International and one of NZ's leading agents Bruce Sharrock joined Mike Hosking.
