For Investec Super Rugby, Ngatai shifted to the Chiefs in 2013 after two strong seasons with the Hurricanes.
His national representative career includes involvement with the New Zealand Schools team and he was part of the 2010 Junior World Championship-winning New Zealand Under 20 team, taking part in all five matches in that tournament.
