The Chiefs have today announced two new signings for their 2013 team to defend the Super Rugby championship.

Former Hurricanes and Wellington midfield back Charlie Ngatai and former Highlander and Manawatu captain Nick Crosswell have both signed with the Chiefs until 2014.

Ngatai made his NPC debut at the age of 18 and was part of the New Zealand under-20 world junior championship team in 2010. 

The 22-year-old is joined by Croswell, a loose forward who has had close to 100 first class games under his belt and over 30 Super Rugby appearances. 

He has represented New Zealand at secondary schoo and under-19 level and is entering his seventh NPC season.  The 26-year-old has played for both the Hurricanes and Highlanders.

The two newest additions to the Chiefs will go head to head this Friday night in their opening NPC clash, when Manawatu host Wellington.
