After his debut season with the Hurricanes came to an abrupt end in June with a broken ankle, the Porirua born and bred halfback is back on the road to recovery and itching to get back into rugby.
“I’m excited to be with Wellington and the Hurricanes for another two seasons. This is my home and I can’t wait to get back on the field and play some footy,” said Perenara.
Hurricanes and Wellington Rugby CEO James Te Puni was thrilled to have him commit to the Capital for another two seasons.
“We are delighted TJ is on board with the Ricoh Wellington Lions and the Hurricanes until the end of 2014. He is one of our own, straight from Titahi Bay and has had a huge impact this year. TJ is a loyal and committed young man. It is fantastic to see him stay to continue his career in the capital.”
Hurricanes Head Coach Mark Hammett added, “TJ made a good start in his first season with the Hurricanes and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him to develop his game and continue the progression of his career. He works hard off the field to learn and develop his game and I’m sure he will come back better and stronger in 2013 after his injury.”
