All Blacks prop Ofa Tuungafasi will play for the Blues and New Zealand Rugby until the end of the 2021 Super Rugby season.
Tuungafasi, who has played 14 times for the All Blacks and 63 times for the Blues, has re-signed with his Super Rugby club and the national body for a further three years. He has also re-signed with his Auckland Mitre 10 Cup province.
The 26-year-old, who made his Super Rugby debut in 2013 and All Blacks test debut in 2016, said he had no hesitation in remaining with New Zealand Rugby and with his Blues club.
“My family and I are Aucklanders. We are proud to be part of the Blues and I’m so pleased to re-sign for the Blues for another three years,” said Tuungafasi.
“There’s no other club I want to be at. I want to achieve 100 games for the Blues and join that special group, and I want to be a big part of a Blues team that wins a Super Championship.
“I’ve been honoured to wear the All Black jersey and represent my country and that’s something I cherish and want to have the opportunity to do in the coming years.”
