Tyrel Lomax re-signs with NZR, Hurricanes
All Blacks prop Tyrel Lomax has re-committed to New Zealand Rugby (NZR) until the end of 2026.
The extension will also see the 26-year-old continue to be aligned with the Hurricanes in DHL Super Rugby Pacific and the Tasman Mako in the Bunnings Warehouse NPC.
The 23-Test tighthead prop was one of the All Blacks’ top performers in 2022 and has proudly represented the Māori All Blacks on eight occasions.
Born in Canberra where his Kiwi father John became a rugby league great, Lomax spent time on both sides of the Tasman during his childhood. He launched his Super Rugby career in Melbourne but moved to New Zealand in 2017 to sign with Tasman and the Highlanders, before making his All Blacks debut the following year.
He would not add to that sole international appearance until 2020, when he joined the Hurricanes.
Lomax has represented Tasman since 2017, playing a key role in their maiden NPC title win in 2019. While playing for the Mako last year, he was recalled to the All Blacks as injury cover during The Lipovitan-D Rugby Championship, quickly cementing himself as the first-choice tighthead.
