An intelligent midfielder and natural leader, Crotty has impressed for Canterbury since 2008 and for the Crusaders since 2009. He will join Nasi Manu as one of the vice-captains for Canterbury this season, a role he has also held with the Crusaders since 2013.
Crotty earned a call up to the All Blacks in 2013 and joined the squad again for this year's Bledisloe Cup as a replacement player.  That followed national recognition as a Junior All Black in 2009 and a member of the successful New Zealand Under-20 team at the Junior World Championship in Wales in 2011.
Ryan’s father, Steve, played rugby for Nelson Bays and his mother Robyn is a former New Zealand Waterpolo representative.
