The 26-year-old centre, who made his Test debut against Samoa in 2015 and was then selected in the All Blacks squad last year but never played due to the concussion, will start for the Chiefs against the Reds in New Plymouth, live on Sky Sports 5 HD from 8.30am.
Ngatai sustained the injury playing against the Highlanders on May 7, 2016 and was ruled out for the rest of the year as he failed to overcome the symptoms.
Ngatai will link with Anton Lienert-Brown in midfield for the clash in New Plymouth.
Lienert-Brown was arguably the player who benefitted the most from Ngatai’s absence last year, being plucked from virtual obscurity by All Blacks coach Steve Hansen and impressing enough to earn nine caps.
All Blacks hooker Nathan Harris will also make his Super Rugby return after he suffered a knee injury last August.
The 25-year-old suffered the injury while in camp with the All Blacks and was the second serious injury to strike the mobile hooker in his career.
He also suffered a bad ankle injury while playing the United States in late 2014, which ruled him out for much of 2015.
His return, from the bench, could not have come at a better time for Hansen with first-choice hooker Dane Coles under an injury cloud in the final weeks before the British and Irish Lions tour.
The Reds have moved forward in a few areas and the had no worries unlocking the Tahs defence seemingly at will but, it was the things that haven’t improved that are holding them back. Defence and penalties are killing their season. The Chiefs are a well oiled machine and should win this in a canter.
