Charlie Ngatai has put pen to paper, re-signing with the back-to-back champion Chiefs for a further two years.

The exciting centre has played 19 matches for the Chiefs, proving a versatile and quick option with the ability to play anywhere across the backline.

The 23-year-old has recently signed on with the Taranaki provincial union, and said he jumped at the chance to stay with the Chiefs.

"This is a great team to play in with great people and a top environment.  My rugby has progressed well under the Chiefs, which is why I wanted to stay. "

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie said he is happy to have Ngatai secured in his camp.

"Charlie is an impressive young man who's become an integral part of our squad,'' Rennie said.

"He's smart and has an excellent skill set, which enables him to play multiple positions. We are rapt he's signed on long term."

Ngatai is a Maori All Black, former New Zealand U20's and New Zealand School representative who has also played for the Hurricanes and Wellington in the ITM Cup.
