    Lam, 28, nephew of the Samoan international Pat Lam, made his Super Rugby debut at the Blues before joining the Hurricanes two years ago.

    He has made a name for himself as an explosive wing, scoring 29 tries in 47 Super Rugby games since 2016, including two last weekend in the 38-22 win over the Sharks.

    Lam has played 84 sevens internationals for New Zealand scoring 54 tries.

    He joins the squad at the start of next season following Fijian Semi Radradra's departure for English Premiership club Bristol, where Pat Lam is director of rugby.
