Israel Dagg makes announcement on future

All Blacks fullback will be staying in New Zealand with the Crusaders until 2019 after signing a new three-year deal.

The 28-year-old follows in the footsteps of fullback Ben Smith, rejecting massive offers from Europe.

Dagg’s future was in serious doubt after missing the 2015 World Cup squad, but he bounced back brilliantly once Hansen switched him to the wing, and returned Smith to fullback.
