    Cape Town - All Blacks and Chiefs scrumhalf Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi has re-signed with New Zealand Rugby until 2021.

    Tahuriorangi, 24, a product of Rotorua Boys’ High School, has long been recognised as a talented player with an exceptional pass.

    He headed south to New Plymouth making his provincial debut in 2015 for Taranaki after the success of the New Zealand U20s campaign.

    The dynamic halfback made his Chiefs and All Blacks debut in 2018, two years after his Super Rugby bow and is thrilled with the contract.

    “It was an easy decision for me and my partner to make. My whanau are exceptionally important to me and I’m looking forward to having them continue with me on this journey,” he said.

    Chiefs head coach Colin Cooper said Tahuriorangi was a talented young player and he was happy to have him continue with the franchise.

    “It is great news to have Te Toiroa re-sign through till 2021. He is part of a great group of young men we have here. We have all seen he is a talented player and we know he will only keep improving in the years to come. We look forward to seeing Te Toiroa represent the Gallagher Chiefs and continue to strive for higher honours.”

    All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen added that he is looking forward to seeing Tahuriorangi continue to develop his game.

    “Te Toiroa made a really good start in his debut season with the All Blacks, and he now has to continue to develop his game at both Super Rugby and international level. We look forward to watching him and his game grow even further over the next few seasons,” he said.
