WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — All Blacks flyhalf Beauden Barrett has re-signed with New Zealand Rugby through the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Barrett will also remain with the Wellington-based Hurricanes who he led to their first Super Rugby title this season.

The 25-year-old, who has played 40 tests said "I'm loving my footy at the moment. The All Blacks are an incredibly special team to be part of and I'm looking forward to playing my role and adding my small part to the legacy over the next few years."

New Zealand coach Steve Hansen said Barrett "has been a world-class player coming off the bench for some time, he's now graduated into starting test matches for us, and this year he's been nothing short of spectacular."
