All Black prop Tony Woodcock is returning to the Blues for the 2014 Super Rugby season after signing a one year deal with the franchise.

With 104 Test caps, Woodcock is the most capped All Black prop and just the second player to reach 100 games for the Blues.

The 32-year-old, who played for the Highlanders in 2013, says he's looking forward to being closer to his family and finishing his rugby at the Blues.

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