Dagg Stays Put

Wellington, Oct 10 NZPA - Highly rated Hawkes Bay fullback Israel Dagg has inked a deal which will allow him to play his provincial rugby for Hawke's Bay and continue his association with the Highlanders for next season's Super 14.

Dagg, 21, said leaving Hawke's Bay was never a realistic option, but he had been weighing up his Super rugby options.

"With the Hurricanes well served with fullbacks and my wish to play as much Super 14 as possible, the Highlanders is the right choice.

"I enjoyed my time there last season and enjoy working with Glenn Moore and my provincial coach, Peter Russell," he added.

Moore was pleased with Dagg coming back.

"The continuity of players, season on season, is hugely important.

"Israel is a high quality player who is one of the best fullbacks around; I am delighted he is returning,"' he said.
