Sevu Reece signs on until 2026


Sevu Reece has extended his contract with New Zealand Rugby and the Crusaders through until 2026.


The winger will play at least the next two DHL Super Rugby seasons for the Crusaders, meaning Christchurch locals will see him run out at Te Kaha once it’s complete.


“I’m very pleased to stick with the Crusaders until 2026,” Reece said.


“This club is special to me, and so much more than just a rugby team – it’s a family. I can’t wait to pull the jersey on again next season and prove to everyone what we can do.”


The 27-year-old debuted for both the Crusaders and the All Blacks in 2019, and in the 2024 DHL Super Rugby Pacific season surpassed Caleb Ralph to become the Crusaders’ all-time top try scorer.



Reece has also made the decision to shift his provincial rugby allegiance from Tasman to Southland for the Bunnings Warehouse NPC.


“I’m excited to represent Southland and spend more time down there. My partner Kiri and her family are from the area, and making the provincial shift south definitely means more chances to spend time with them,” he said.


“I’m also really looking forward to spending time with the passionate fans that I know we have across the Southland region.”


Rob Penney, Crusaders Head Coach, said the franchise was lucky to have a talent like Reece locked in for another three seasons.


“Sevu is a world-class athlete who can create magic from anywhere on the paddock,” Penney said.


“He’s earnt his spot as our all -time top try scorer and we can’t wait to see what he achieves in 2025.”
