Wellington - All Blacks Rugby World Cup wing Cory Jane says he has re-signed with the Hurricanes for the next Super 15 rugby season.

Jane announced his decision via a Twitter posting on Friday. He is one of only two All Blacks to stick with the Hurricanes after the sackings of World Cup center Ma'a Nonu and hooker Andrew Hore.

Nonu has joined the Blues along with All Blacks scrumhalf Piri Weepu. Former All Blacks props Neemia Tialata and John Schwalger have left to play overseas while flyhalf Aaron Cruden will play for the Chiefs.

Nonu's longtime midfield partner Conrad Smith is remaining with the Hurricanes while winger Hosea Gear is considering a move overseas after missing World Cup selection.
