Cory Steven Jane (born 8 February 1983) is a New Zealand international rugby union player of Māori descent.[3]

He first played for the All Blacks in 2008 and plays as a winger. In 2011 Jane was selected into the Tri Nations team as injury cover. A few weeks later he made the Rugby World cup squad of 30 after tight competition in the back three.[4]


Born in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, Jane plays for Wellington in the Air New Zealand Cup and for the Wellington Hurricanes in Super Rugby. He has previously played for Hawke's Bay and was in the New Zealand team that won the Rugby Sevens gold medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Of Ngāti Kahungunu descent,[5] Jane represented New Zealand Māori in 2006.[4]

Jane was third-equal on the 2006 Air New Zealand Cup leading try scorer's list with 6 tries, behind Richard Kahui (8 tries) and Sitiveni Sivivatu (7 tries), both from Waikato.[citation needed]

He was a member of the 2011 Rugby World Cup winning All Blacks.[6]

In 2012 he played on the wing for the Hurricanes. He was not included in the 2012 All Blacks team for the series against Ireland due to injury, but was selected again for 2012 Rugby Championship and was part of the side that beat Australia in the first two tests of the Bledisloe Cup. Jane also played in the All Blacks for 2012 End-of-Year Tour, in which they beat Scotland, Wales and Italy.[citation needed]

Jane suffered a serious leg injury in January 2013, preventing his involvement in Super Rugby and the series against France held in June.[citation needed] In October 2013, he was recalled into the All Blacks team after two games for Wellington in the ITM Cup.[7] He was later named on the right wing in the Final Bledisloe Cup match.[8] but ruled out on the 11th hour due to an injury and subsequently replaced by Charles Piutau. He was added to the All Blacks squad for the 2013 end-of-year rugby union tests. He returned to international rugby after being named on the right wing against France.

Jane narrowly missed out on being picked for New Zealand's 2015 Rugby World Cup squad.[9]
