The Chiefs end their Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign when they travel to Wellington to face the in-form Hurricanes. The home side are full of confidence after four straight wins and are tipped to beat the winless Chiefs with ease.

Hurricanes Form & News


The Hurricanes kicked off their Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign with inconsistency, but have since found some form, winning their last four fixtures. They had a bye last weekend, but took down the mighty Crusaders 34-32 away from home the weekend prior. It was the Crusaders' first loss at home in 36 clashes.

Before that fine victory, the Hurricanes took out second-placed Blues 29-27 at home.

The Hurricanes can still win the title, but it is going to take a lot of other results going their way for that to happen.

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

Chiefs Form & News


The Chiefs are hapless at the moment, with seven losses in their last seven fixtures. Coach Warren Gatland is now under serious pressure.

Last week, the Chiefs lost 32-19 at the Crusaders in what was a much better showing. Their preceding two matches ended in narrow defeats – first 21-17 to the Blues and then 33-31 to the Highlanders.

Confidence is very low at the moment and you can't see them doing anything special in Wellington.

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.
