Expect to see Damian McKenzie in the number 15 jersey for the Chiefs this Super Rugby season.

The All Blacks utility played first-five for the franchise in 2019, before rupturing his ACL last April ending his season and World Cup prospects.

New Chiefs coach Warren Gatland told Jason Pine fullback is the position where McKenzie has the potential to secure a long-time spot in the black jersey.

The Chiefs begin their Super Rugby campaign against the Blues at Eden Park on January 31st.
