Billy Proctor recommits to Hurricanes on two-year deal
Wellington centre, Billy Proctor, has recommitted to the Hurricanes through to the end of the 2025 which will mark his sixth and seventh seasons with the Club.
In 2019, the then teenager inked a five-year deal with the club, the longest deal in Hurricanes history, and debuted against the Waratahs in Sydney. Proctor has since played 46 matches for the side, dotting down 12 times.
"I'm obviously really excited about the opportunity to extend my time with the Canes," said Proctor.
"I've always supported the Hurricanes and I’m really happy to continue representing my home region. Hopefully, we can continue building on where we are now and ultimately win a championship for the Club."
Hurricanes head coach, Jason Holland, was pleased to see Proctor recommit to the Club for another two seasons.
“Billy has been an unsung hero of this Club for the last three or four years. He’s a brilliant professional who is the glue to everything we do.
"He’s a massive part of this group and has respect from everyone, both on and off the field, so to have him sign on for another two years is a massive bonus for the Hurricanes.
“Even in the last few years, he’s worked hard on his attacking game. We’ve seen great development there, he’s a great defender in our backline and he’ll just keep getting better,” said Holland.
A product of St Patrick’s College in Wellington, Billy is a former New Zealand Secondary Schools representative and was also part of the New Zealand Under-20 squad.
In 2020, Proctor made his Māori All Blacks debut against Moana Pasifika in Hamilton.
