All Blacks and Crusaders' loosehead prop Joe Moody has re-signed with New Zealand Rugby and his Super Rugby club for another three years through to 2019.

Moody made his Super Rugby debut in 2013 and a year later showed the ability to perform at the highest level when he was called into the All Blacks during the 2014 Rugby Championship.

He has now played 14 Tests, including last year's Rugby World Cup Final, and was also a key part of the All Blacks' commanding 46-6 win over the Welsh at the weekend.

All Blacks Head Coach Steve Hansen said: "Joe's re-signing is great news for the All Blacks and New Zealand Rugby. He has developed into a very important member of the All Blacks, he is a very good scrummager and works incredibly hard on his core roles. We look forward to watching how his game develops even further."
