Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has fitted in another piece of the jigsaw puzzle as he prepares to snatch the World Cup out of New Zealand in 2011.

Deans has snapped up Hurricanes tighthead prop Tim Fairbrother and is set to call him into the Wallabies for the Tri-Nations.

Fairbrother had been granted an early release from his contract with New Zealand and the Hurricanes and he'll be off to the other side of the Tasman from June 1.

He is eligible to play for the Wallabies through his mother Robina, whose parents are Australian.

He will play for the Force in the Super 14 next year, replacing Ben Castle, who is off to the Newport Gwent Dragons in Wales.

The 27-year-old front rower is reaching the peak years for his position and has plumped for Australia and the Force, turning down other lucrative offers for European clubs.

The signing of Fairbrother could bring down the curtain on Matt Dunning's time in Australia.

Dunning has been frustrated that the offer from the Australian Rugby Union is well below what he thinks his value is.

Fairbrother has been a regular feature in Wellington rugby since 2001, playing 68 games for the Lions and 60 for the Hurricanes.

Shoulder surgery forced him to miss the entire 2006 Air New Zealand Cup and the 2007 Super 14.

Local media are wondering this week if Fairbrother should continue to play for a New Zealand franchise now that he's pledged his future to the Wallabies.

But the fact the NZRU has signed off on Fairbrother's release date speaks to the healthy relationship between the NZRU and ARU.

Agree - he's a good player, the "meat & 3 veg" type player that will do you proud but doesn't do anything flashy.

I cant believe this article is serious. He can barely make the Hurricanes bench but the article says Deans is considering him for his Tri Nations squad??

Surely the Wallabies arent that hard up for decent front rowers?
