    Crusaders hold onto Guildford

    2013-07-02 21:18
    Christchurch - The Crusaders have announced that Zac Guildford has re-signed with the seven-time Super Rugby champions for another year.

    SANZAR's website reports that Guildford, who has been with the Crusaders since 2010, is set to play his 58th game this weekend against the Chiefs.

    Guildford rose through the ranks before joining the Christchurch-based franchise, culminating in winning the IRB Junior World Championships with the Baby Blacks in 2009 for which he was later rewarded with a senior All Blacks cap for their end of year tour of that year.

    He has also represented New Zealand in Sevens, competing in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi and winning the Gold Medal against Australia.

    ”I am excited to be extending my contract with the Crusaders for another year. I love playing for them," said the 24-year-old.

    "The Crusaders are like a family and they have been really supportive of me during my career.

    "It is important to help repay that loyalty and I hope that I can do that on the paddock for them," Guildford said.

    Crusaders Head Coach Todd Blackadder is delighted with Guildford’s decision.

    “Zac is an important asset to the Crusaders," he said.

    "He has terrific speed, an impressive work rate and a knack for finding the gap. He is a key part of the Crusaders family and we are delighted that he is staying with us."

    Guildford has also re-signed with the Hawke’s Bay magpies and will join the team in August for their ITM Cup campaign.
