Loose forward Adam Thomson has signed with the Otago Rugby Football Union for a further two years until the end of the 2010 season.

Thomson, 26, debuted for Otago in 2004 against Waikato. He has since played 33 games for Otago and 14 games for the Highlanders. Thomson debuted for the All Blacks this year against Ireland and has played 7 tests. He was also a member of the NZ Sevens team in 2007.

Otago chief executive Richard Reid said: ‘Adam is a real talent and that was shown with his selection for the All Blacks this year. We are happy that Adam has chosen to stay in Otago.’

Otago coach Steve Martin said he was pleased Thomson has re-signed with Otago.


‘Adam is a dynamic loose forward who can create attacking opportunities for himself and other players. He is capable of playing all three loose forward positions and he has shown this at the highest level. It is great to have him on board for another two years.’


Thomson’s re-signing comes days after wing Fetu’u Vainikolo and lock Tom Donnelly signed with Otago through until the end of the 2010 season.
