Chiefs scrum-half Brad Weber has committed his future with New Zealand Rugby at the end of the 2021 season.

Weber was originally contracted with the New Zealand board until the end of the year but now has re-signed one more year.

The 29-year-old made his professional rugby debut with ITM Cup side Otago in 2012 before moving to Waikato a year later. He was also the captain and co-captain of Waikato during the 2014 and 2015 seasons of ITM Cup respectively.

His Super Rugby debut for Chiefs came in 2014 and his consistent performance in the domestic circuit earned him a call-up to New Zealand squad in 2015.

Weber has played five Tests for the All Blacks in 2015 that includes three appearances in the Rugby World Cup 2015 and a solitary game in the Rugby Championship. He also represented New Zealand Under 20 side during the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship.

"An offer was 100 per cent there, and it took a fair bit of thinking to stick around," he said.

"But I didn't want to leave when I was playing my best rugby, I felt like I would regret that."

Chiefs currently are at the top of the New Zealand Conference with four wins from five games and will face Hurricanes next at FMG Stadium Waikato on Friday.
