Another Kiwi derby in round 8 and for the Chiefs, this is really a must win if they’re to avoid falling further back into the also-rans.

Last year’s finalists started the season in dream fashion, recording three good wins on the road, but have fallen alarmingly off the pace, losing at home to the Reds and the Crusaders and away to the Brumbies in recent weeks. They simply have to pick up a bonus points win against the Highlanders to keep themselves in touch, but will be forced to do so without a number of key players, including start hooker Aled de Malmanche, who may be out for the season.

This visitors are up against it in a big way and will be without stalwart prop Jamie Mackinstosh and lock Tom Donnely.
