Chiefs back Tim Nanai-Williams has extended his Super Rugby contract and will remain with the franchise until 2015.

The 24-year-old has played 62 games for the Chiefs and stated that to re-sign with the franchise was an easy decision.

"I am really happy where I am at - this is my home. I have some goals that I want to achieve and believe this is the place I need be to reach them."

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie was pleased to have Nanai-Williams locked in.

"Ultimately, Tim is a top man,'' Rennie said.

''He has been a huge part of our success over the past couple of seasons and we are rapt he's back on deck next year.

"He's a member of our Leadership group and defence group and has a positive influence on our younger players. He is having a fantastic season, the quality of his skill set is evident in the multiple positions he has played for us this year."

Nanai-Williams has been with the Chiefs since 2010.
