Highlanders General Manager, Roger Clark, commented, “there has been a lot of speculation over the past weeks regarding Aaron’s future.
"I want to emphasise that Aaron has been fully committed to the Highlanders from the beginning of our negotiations and did not considered another Super Rugby Team at any stage.
"The reason the NZR and Highlanders’ announcements of Aaron recommitting didn’t coincide was due purely to the process the Highlanders needed to go through internally for sign off.
"It is great to be able to officially confirm Aaron will be a Highlander for the two years, we have made great progress as a team this past season and as a senior player Aaron is vital to the continuation of that success.”
