“This is fantastic for our region and the Hurricanes. Both are hardworking, dedicated young men who reflect the team culture we seek to create. They are great role models for aspiring Hurricanes,” said Te Puni.
Shields, who successfully came back on the field in Mangatainoka after sustaining a knee injury last July, was thrilled to continue his career with the Canes.
“I’m stoked that I can play where I love and I can’t see myself playing anywhere else. There is such an awesome team culture here and it is pretty special to be a part of it,” Shields explained.
Shields has signed for the Hurricanes for the 2014 season and extended his Wellington Lions contract for 2013.
South African born prop, Goodes made an exciting start to his Super Rugby in 2012 and is looking forward to doing it all a second time around this year. Goodes will add to the hotly contested propping positions within the 2013 team.
“I’m very happy to have re-signed with the Lions and extend my Hurricanes contract to the end of 2014. It’s an exciting two years ahead.”
