Former Hurricanes star Brad Shields has married his partner Louise Hatton in a shotgun wedding ahead of their move to England.
Brad posted the news to Instagram with a photo of Louise, a photographer, and himself at their wedding.
"Nothing better than a shotgun wedding to end 2017. @lou_hatton_photo bring on 2018. #newyearswedding," he wrote.
Louise also took to Instagram with the news, writing: "Happy New Years from mine to yours ! Now we are England ready with our wee Shields family unit."
Brad announced in late 2017 that he is moving to Britain to join English club Wasps.
