La Rochelle - New Zealand's two-time Rugby World Cup winner Victor Vito has signed a three-year contract extension with La Rochelle, the club announced on Tuesday.

Vito, who lifted the Webb Ellis trophy both in 2011 and four years later, joined the Top 14 club in 2016 and was named the league's player of the season during his first campaign in France.

The 31-year-old was appointed club captain in August and has only missed one game this term with La Rochelle sitting in third place in the table with eight wins from 11 matches.
