The 19-year-old committed to a long-term deal with Chiefs in 2014, quickly becoming one of the cornerstone players of the franchise.
”While I was training with the Chiefs I learned so much and really enjoyed the coaching staff and the culture, so I am rapt to be given this opportunity,” McKenzie said at the time.
”The boys are very welcoming and I know I will enjoy being part of the Chiefs family.”
The Chiefs will be chuffed that the decision to go after the young 10 early has paid dividends, with McKenzie representing the club 78 times. At just 25-years-old, McKenzie is sure to be apart of the Chiefs for years to come.
