All Blacks wing Sevu Reece has committed his immediate future with New Zealand Rugby and Super Rugby side Crusaders after signing a new contract until end of 2022 season.

Reece started his professional rugby career with Waikato in 2016 with his maiden Super Rugby appearance for Crusaders coming in the victorious 2019 season where he scored 15 tries.

His performance with Crusaders earned him New Zealand call-up making his international debut in the Rugby Championship tournament last year against Argentina and went on to play seven Tests for the All Blacks including four in the World Cup in Japan where he scored two tries.

“2019 was a surreal season for me with the Crusaders and All Blacks, so it was an easy decision to extend my time with the Crusaders club and continue to push for higher honours," he told

“I’m loving my rugby at the moment and have had the opportunity to work with some amazing players and coaches, who have inspired me on and off the field. I’m really looking forward to what the 2020 season has in store.”

New Zealand head coach Ian Foster believes Reece has all the attributes to have a successful future in New Zealand.

“He’s a young player who made great strides in his first season of professional rugby and we look forward to watching his development during the Investec Super Rugby season.”
