Parma - Former All Blacks standout Mils Muliaina will leave Irish club Connacht for Italian side Zebre at the end of this season.

Zebre say the 34-year-old fullback is joining the Parma-based club on a one-year deal.

Operated by the Italian rugby federation, Zebre play in the Guinness Pro12 and the Heineken Cup.

With 100 caps between 2003 and 2011, the Samoa-born Muliaina stands fifth all-time on the All Blacks appearances list.

Zebre team manager Andrea De Rossi says "In a World Cup year it's important to try and build a squad that can guarantee an adequate standard even with the absences of many Italian national team players."

Fifteen Zebre players appeared in this year's Six Nations tournament.
