Ngatai signs new deal with Chiefs

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 31/05/2016

Midfield dynamo Charlie Ngatai has extended his contract with the Chiefs until the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season.

The 25-year-old announced his decision just days after he was named in the All Blacks squad for the upcoming series against Wales.

Ngatai said the coaching and culture at the Chiefs were big reasons behind his decision.

"Looking ahead, I want to keep developing my game and performing well to hopefully win another Championship with the Chiefs and ultimately earn some time in the black jersey," he said.

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie said it was pleasing to secure a player of Ngatai's calibre.

"His skillset is a real point of difference - he's very quick, has great footwork and his distribution and kicking game at second five-eighth is exceptional."
