The 27-year-old has signed a two-year extension with the southern-most Super Rugby franchise, continuing a tenure which began in 2013.

Coltman has been on the fringe of Test squad selection in recent years and made his breakthrough last November thanks to multiple injuries. He made a 14-minute bench appearance in the 68-10 thrashing of Italy in Rome.

New Plymouth-born Coltman has played 61 games for the Highlanders and 64 NPC matches for Otago.
