David Havili re-signs with NZR, Crusaders
All Blacks back David Havili has his sights set on more success in Aotearoa after re-signing with New Zealand Rugby (NZR) until the end of 2025.
The Nelson-born utility wants to build on the success he has had in the international arena, DHL Super Rugby Pacific and Bunnings Warehouse NPC.
His impressive résumé includes 25 Tests for the All Blacks, six consecutive Super Rugby titles with the Crusaders and a pair of NPC titles he won as captain of the Tasman Makos.
Havili has been a key contributor to the Crusaders’ impressive six-year run, playing in all but one of their recent Super Rugby finals. The vice-captain became the 22 Crusader to reach 100 games for the club in DHL Super Rugby Pacific last year.
A product of the Nelson College 1st XV, Havili debuted for the Tasman Mako in 2014 before captaining the side to back-to-back NPC titles in 2019 and 2020.
