The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - Ben Coles

Hoskins So­tutu, the im­pres­sive New Zealand No 8 who qual­i­fies to play for England, has signed a two-year con­tract ex­ten­sion to re­main with the Blues in Su­per Rugby. The Daily

Tele­graph re­ported last week that the back row, 21, was on the radar of Ed­die Jones, the England head coach, but any move north now seems un­likely.

So­tutu has been a fun­da­men­tal part of the Blues’ un­beaten start to the in­ter­provin­cial com­pe­ti­tion.

Leon Mac­Don­ald, the head coach, said: “He can look for­ward to a long ca­reer with us.”

So­tutu added: “It is all about the team, for me.”
