Truely blessed to have re-signed with NZ for 2020-2021. To be honest was a very tough decision but being at home with family and close friends and the opportunity to play for @allblacks @hurricanesrugby @wgtn_rugby I couldn’t leave. Thank you to the fans for the on going support. Can’t wait to get stuck in to 2019 with my canes brothers🤘🏽. LESGOOOOO🔥 #GratefulAlways #Aishaish
While it was a tough decision to turn down overseas offers, Savea said the chance to continue to play for Wellington, the Hurricanes and All Blacks was an opportunity he could not turn down.
