Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn and prop Wyatt Crockett have agreed new deals with their Super Rugby franchise and the NZRU.
Hooker Flynn, who has 95 caps for the Crusaders, and prop Crockett, who has 80, have played in every game for Canterbury this season.
Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder said in a statement both front rowers are critical for the franchise moving foward.
"It's great news that Wyatt and Corey have re-committed to New Zealand and Crusaders rugby," he said.
"They are two experienced players and have a great deal to offer both on and off the field. Both Wyatt and Corey have been key players for us this season."
Flynn has played in 12 Tests for the All Blacks, while Crockett, 28, has made three international appearances.
NZRU general manager of professional rugby Neil Sorensen said: "It's fantastic that New Zealand can retain talent of the calibre of Wyatt and Corey.
"These guys are both at the top of their game and it's great to have them commit to rugby in New Zealand."
