Nanai-Williams, 20, was one of the best Chiefs amid a poor 15-49 defeat to the Stormers in Hamilton on Friday.

The signing was another coup for the south Aucklanders who lured former All Blacks captain Tana Umaga as their player-coach for the coming season.

"I am really looking forward to playing and learning from Tana Umaga, he has always been one of my favourite All Blacks," Nanai-Williams said in a statement.

The Manurewa local played for the New Zealand Sevens team in 2008 and 2009, having represented both the New Zealand secondary schools and under-17 sides.
