Waratahs winger Kingston to join the Rebels

Waratahs winger Tom Kingston has agreed to leave New South Wales and join the Melbourne Rebels on a two year contract from next season.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Rebels will most likely confirm the signing on Friday while the Waratahs are in Christchurch preparing for their clash with the Crusaders.

Kingston has fallen out of favour with the Waratahs and was left out of the team to play in Christchurch this weekend.

This week is the fourth week in a row that Kingston has been left out of the matchday 22 which makes his move understandable.

The twenty-one-year-old was expected to be one of the Waratahs new stars this season but he has battle for selection behind Cam Crawford and Peter Betham.

Kingston started in the first two Super Rugby matches of the season – against the Reds and Rebels – and then started against the Bulls.

He has made four other appearances from the bench but has now been relegated to playing Sydney club rugby, where he has played since the middle of this month.

Crawford and Betham have even pushed Wallabies winger Drew Mitchell on to the bench this weekend.
