    Chiefs duo extend contracts

    2017-05-02 13:25

    Cape Town - Loose forwards Mitchell Brown and Lachlan Boshier have agreed new contracts to stay with the Chiefs until the end of 2019.

    The Taranaki pair joined the Chiefs as replacement players in 2016, impressing in their maiden Super Rugby seasons to earn full contracts for 2017.

    Brown, 23, is known for his uncompromising and assertive style of play. At 1.94m and 110kg, his size coupled with his impressive skillset offers versatility at lock, flank and No 8.

    Brown made his debut in the No 6 jersey for the Chiefs against Wales in June 2016. His Super Rugby debut followed soon after against the Crusaders in Suva, Fiji. To date he has played nine games for the Chiefs and is Chiefs No 278.

    Born and raised in Taranaki, Brown attended New Plymouth Boys High School and played two years for the School’s 1st XV in 2010 and 2011. He earned his first cap for the Port Taranaki Bulls in their Ranfurly Shield defence against King Country in 2012. Brown has played 27 first class games over five seasons with the amber and blacks.

    Boshier made his Chiefs debut against the Sharks in April 2016 and quickly established himself as an excellent openside flank. At 1.93m and 106kg, Boshier has proved a handful for opposition teams due to his accuracy and work ethic. The 22-year-old builder is Chiefs No 276 and has played 13 Super Rugby games to date.

    Boshier is also a product of New Plymouth Boys High School. He played for the School’s 1st XV from 2010-2012, a team he also captained. The former New Zealand Under-20s representative made his Mitre 10 Cup debut for the Port Taranaki Bulls in 2014.
