In November 2013, Savea travelled with the All Blacks to Europe, along with his older brother Julian. This was because "we want to introduce him to the way of the All Black life," said Coach Steve Hansen.

In 2015, Savea was selected for the All Blacks Sevens squad to play in the Wellington 7s series in January 2016.

In 2016, Savea was selected in New Zealand's All Blacks squad for the June test series against Wales. Savea made his debut off the bench on 11 June against Wales at Eden Park. Savea scored a try in his second match for New Zealand at the Westpac Stadium, his home crowd.

Following an injury to Sam Cane, Savea ended up playing 2 of the Rugby Championship tests as openside flanker. In his first start for the All Blacks against South Africa in the 2016 Rugby Championship, Ardie scored a try along with his brother Julian, making them the first brothers in the All Blacks to ever do so in the same test.

Personal life

His older brother is fellow All Black and Hurricanes' winger Julian. Savea has Samoan ancestry.
