NZ Rugby World - - The Breakdown -

New Zealand en­joyed two ma­jor vic­to­ries in the player re­ten­tion war when they per­suaded both Damian McKenzie and Vince Aso to ex­tend their con­tracts.

McKenzie, in high de­mand around the world, has signed a three-year ex­ten­sion that will keep him at the Chiefs un­til 2021.

Aso, who has be­come an in­te­gral mem­ber of the Hur­ri­canes back­line in the mid­field or on the wing, has ex­tended his con­tract through to the end of 2020.

“I want to make the hundy club with the Canes and it’s ev­ery kid’s dream to be­come an All Black,” said Aso. “It’s a hard goal but achiev­ing that one day would be awe­some.”
