Seasoned Allblack Lock, Sam Whitelock has resigned with New Zealand Rugby, Crusaders and Canterbury Rugby until 2020.
According to NZHerald.co.za this is what he said, “When I considered whether my immediate playing future was here in New Zealand and Christchurch, I didn’t need to look far for the answer,” he said. “My wife Hannah and I have recently welcomed a new addition to our family, I am still genuinely excited to be playing rugby for these teams and I feel like there is still plenty more to achieve.”
“There is more than enough to motivate me to keep playing and performing for these teams, so I am thrilled and honoured to have re-signed with New Zealand Rugby, the BNZ Crusaders and Canterbury Rugby through to 2020.”
The two time World Champion has been “tipped” to take over Skipper role after Kieran Read retires.
