    Cape Town - All Blacks Ryan Crotty and Scott Barrett are the latest Test players to re-commit to New Zealand Rugby.

    According to the Stuff.co.nz website, Crusaders midfielder Crotty has re-signed until the end of 2019, while his franchise team-mate Barrett has inked a deal through to 2020.

    All Blacks coach Steve Hansen commented: "Scotty has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons. He's a superb athlete for a relatively young player and has been working really hard to develop the skill-set and size to compete at the highest level. We look forward to watching him grow even more over the next few seasons.

    "We also welcome Crotts' re-signing. He's an outstanding footballer, is a key member in our backline and provides a cool, calm head, especially in high-pressure situations."

    This follows the earlier announcement that Blues prop Ofa Tu'ungafasi had re-signed with NZ Rugby through to the end of 2021.

    Earlier, Highlanders wing Waisake Naholo and loose forward Liam Squire had also signed deals that would see them remain in New Zealand until after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
