10:56 am on 28 May 2012

The big-hitting Hurricanes forward Motu Matu'u has signed up for another year in Wellington with the Super Rugby franchise.

The 25 year-old Oriental-Rongotai hooker has made a big impression in his first year of Super Rugby with his powerful running and big tackles, and Matu'u will play for both the Hurricanes and the Wellington Lions in 2013.

Elsewhere the Chiefs co-captain Craig Clarke has re-signed with the Chiefs until the end of 2013.

The 28-year-old lock is in his fourth season with the side, who currently top the Super Rugby table.
