Hurricanes sign Canterbury's Prinsep

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 30/08/2016

Canterbury loose forward Reed Prinsep has signed with Super Rugby champions the Hurricanes for two years.

The Hurricanes, who will be missing the long-serving Victor Vito next year, describe Prinsep as "explosive".

"I see this move as a chance to get out of my comfort zone and really challenge myself to take my play to the next level over the next couple of seasons," the 23-year-old said on Wednesday when the move was announced.

The 1.92m and 108kg number 8 or blindside flanker has played 14 times for Canterbury before this year's provincial competition and was Canterbury Colts player of the year in 2014.

He will join the Hurricanes squad in November.
