The Hurricanes have agreed new contracts with full-back Andre Taylor and utility back Alipate Leiua.

Taylor has been in sensational form this season, scoring 10 times in 14 appearances - and he has been rewarded with a two-year deal at the Wellington-based franchise.

Taylor, the leading try-scorer in Super Rugby this season, said: "I'm thrilled to sign with the Hurricanes.

"I've really enjoyed this season and I'm looking forward to continuing to do the best I can for this team."

Leiua has been re-signed for the 2013 season - with head coach Mark Hammett delighted to see two of his key players commit.

"Andre has really hit his form this year and found himself a home in the backline," he said.

"Alapati has continued to be a solid performer in both the wings and midfield. They are both young and hard-working guys so their commitment will add to the momentum we're building."
