Ihaia West for Hawke s Bay

Called: Ihaia West

The Chiefs have added Hawke's Bay fly-half Ihaia West to their first-team squad ahead of the Super Rugby campaign due to injury concerns.

West, who shone in the ITM Cup for the Magpies, scored 167 points for the outfit which saw him included in the recent Maori All Blacks squad.

Many were surprised not to see him earn a full-time Super Rugby contract as West had to make do with a wider training spot at the champions.

But with concerns over Robbie Robinson, Gareth Anscombe and also Tom Marshall, the Chiefs have opted to hand West a Super Rugby deal.
