Former All Blacks back-row Adam Thomson has joined the Chiefs as one of eight replacement players currently with the squad until early February.

Thomson, who played for Otago in last year’s Mitre 10 Cup, says  he is really excited to work under Chiefs coach Warren Gatland and is excited to be in a team like the Chiefs.

The 37-year-old played in 29 Tests for the All Blacks and was part of their squad which won the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

Thomson made his Super Rugby debut for the Highlanders in 2006 and went on to represent the Dunedin-based outfit until 2012 before joining Japanese club Canon Eagles. He returned to Super Rugby with the Reds in 2015 and also had a spell with the Melbourne Rebels in 2016.
