Chiefs have confirmed that All Black winger Emoni Narawa has signed a contract extension until 2026.

“I’m really blessed and grateful for the opportunity to extend my time with the Chiefs until 2026," he told the club's official website.

"This club is our family and has definitely helped me become the player that I am today. God is good, excited for what’s to come.”

Narawa made his professional rugby debut with provincial side Bay of Plenty in 2018 before making his Super Rugby debut with Blues in 2020.

He made a switch to Chiefs in 2022 and has scored eight tries in just seven appearances this year. He was part of the Rugby Championship winning squad of the All Blacks in 2023.

“It is fantastic that Emoni has recommitted to the Gallagher Chiefs for the next few years. He has always had massive potential, and it has been a real pleasure seeing that talent realised over the last few seasons, exemplified by his selection as an All Black in 2023,” said Gallagher Chiefs head coach Clayton McMillan.

“Emoni has an unbelievable ability to see space and create opportunities for himself and others. He is a valued team member and a real character who contributes significantly both on and off the field".

Chiefs are positioned fourth in the Super Rugby Pacific table with nine wins from 12 matches.
