Hurricanes have confirmed that prop Fraser Armstrong and back-row Du'Plessis Kirifi have signed two-year deals with the Super Rugby club.
Armstrong made his professional rugby debut with Waikato and has represented Auckland and Manawatu before making his Super Rugby debut with Hurricanes last season when he made eight appearances.
Meanwhile, Kirifi was instrumental in Wellington Lions winning the 2017 Mitre 10 Cup championship and also trained with Hurricanes as an injury cover during last year's Super Rugby season.
“I have felt my game is continuing to develop at the club and I’m getting to at a point where I can really challenge for a spot in the playing squad,” Armstrong told the Hurricanes website.
Kirifi also expressed his delight to represent Hurricanes in the next two seasons as he looks to propel his career.
“The opportunity to be part of this club is one I’m extremely grateful for.
“I’ve wanted to pull the Hurricanes’ jersey on for as long as I remember. Its a huge privilege and I’m extremely fortunate I get the chance to contribute to the club’s legacy.”
