The Chiefs play their last match of Super Rugby Aotearoa as they travel to Wellington to face the in from Hurricanes. The hosts are full of confidence after four straight victories and are backed to beat the winless Chiefs comprehensively.

Hurricanes Form


The Hurricanes started Super Rugby Aotearoa with inconsistency but have come to life over their last four matches. They had a bye last weekend but beat the Crusaders 34-32 away the week before. It was the first home defeat for the Crusaders in 36 matches.

Before that the Hurricanes beat the second placed Blues 29-27 at home. Those two results leave the Hurricanes with an outside chance of claiming the title but they’ll need plenty to go their way. 

Second place is a distinct possibility but victory this weekend is imperative.

Hurricanes News


The Hurricanes are at full strength following their bye weekend after Dane Coles returned from injury two weeks ago.

Chiefs Form


The Chiefs are on one of their worst runs in history with seven defeats in their last seven matches. This has led to calls for coach Warren Gatland to get sacked. While their performances have hardly been up to scratch the Chiefs have been on the receiving end of some questionable refereeing calls.

Last week the Chiefs went down 32-19 at the Crusaders in what was a spirited performance. Their preceding two matches ended in narrow defeats – first 21-17 to the Blues and then 33-31 to the Highlanders.

Confidence is at an all time low with this being their final match of the Super Rugby season.

Chiefs News


With nothing to play for in their final match of the season the Chiefs could give a few fringe players a start. This includes props Ollie Norris and Angus Ta’avao. Kaleb Trask and Quinn Tupaea will likely feature in the Chiefs back-line.

Hurricanes vs Chiefs Head to Head

Hurricanes vs Chiefs Match Up
