Rugby World Cup winning All Black prop Tony Woodcock has agreed to re-join his former Super Rugby team the Blues for the 2014 season.

The most capped All Black prop (104 Test caps) and just the second player to reach 100 games for the Blues, 32-year-old Woodcock said he was looking forward to returning to the franchise after playing last season for the Highlanders.

"I'm really looking forward to moving home and being closer to my family," Woodcock said.

"I want to finish off my rugby at the Blues where it all started so I'm excited to head back and re-join the team."

Blues head coach Sir John Kirwan said he was thrilled to welcome back a player with Woodcock's credentials and vast experience.

"I'm really excited to have Woody back at the Blues," Kirwan said.

"We're trying to build a lasting franchise so we've got a lot of young guys and to have someone with his experience is fantastic. I see him as one of our people - he's had his OE and now he's back so I think he'll add plenty of value to this team."

The 2014 Blues squad will be formally announced at the end of the month.
