Scrum-halves Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Brad Weber and Jonathan Taumateine have signed with the Chiefs for the 2018 Super Rugby season.
The Chiefs welcome Rotorua-born Tahuriorangi who will join the team on a two-year term. The 22-year-old Taranaki half-back has just completed his second season of Super Rugby with the Hurricanes.
Tahuriorangi completes the trio of exciting number nine signings, with experienced scrum-half Weber, 26, committing to the Chiefs until 2020 and promising young Counties Manukau scrum-half Taumateine signing for two more years.
Incoming Chiefs head coach Colin Cooper said: “We’ve secured a great balance of experience and x-factor with the signings of Brad, Te Toiroa and Jonathan.
“Having worked with Brad in the Maori All Blacks and with Te Toiroa in Taranaki for the past few years, I’m excited and have a lot of confidence in what they’ll bring to the Chiefs in 2018 and beyond.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Jonathan, at just 20-years of age he has a big future ahead of him and will create great competition amongst our three halfbacks for the starting spot.”
