Chiefs have announced that Josh Jacomb has signed a two-year contract extension until the end of the 2026 season.

Jacomb started his career with Taranaki in the National Provincial Championship in 2021 and made his Super Rugby debut for Chiefs in the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific season.

“It’s definitely a special and proud moment for myself and my family to have signed on with the Gallagher Chiefs for the next two years," he told the club's official website.

“After being exposed to the environment for the first time this year, I’m just looking forward to continuing to learn, grow and develop as a person and a rugby player here at the Chiefs over the next couple of years.”

Gallagher Chiefs head coach Clayton McMillan is delighted with Jacomb committing his immediate future with the club.

“Josh is an incredible young talent and it’s fantastic he will be wearing Chiefs colours for the foreseeable future.”

“Josh really lit the 2023 NPC season alight when given his opportunity at Taranaki, and his reputation as a game driver for the future was only enhanced when he took the reins on a few occasions this year.

"He is courageous, tough and a great communicator. We are excited by where we think Josh can get to in his career.”
