Talented flyhalf Richie Mo’unga has re-signed with New Zealand Rugby for a further three years.
The new deal, which included committing to the Crusaders through to 2022, will serve as an additional boost for New Zealand Rugby, with a number of key players having recently signed beyond 2019.
‘I’m really fortunate to have had some amazing opportunities with Canterbury, the Crusaders, and the All Blacks, and I feel there is still plenty I want to achieve in New Zealand rugby, which was a huge motivation for me to re-commit,’ Mo’unga commented.
‘I’m really grateful to be part of a club that means a lot to me and that has given me the opportunity to better myself as a rugby player and as a person. I want to keep striving to be the best I can be, which ultimately is why I’ve made the decision to stay in this environment.’
