An absolute must-win for the Canes if they’re to keep their slim play-off hopes alive.

The Chiefs, so full of promise after reaching the final last season, are dead and buried in this competition and are playing for pride only. From a South African perspective, we want them to win, thus taking the Canes out of the semi-final equation completely.

  • 21-27 with about 20 still to play. Chiefs already have a bonus point for 4 tries.

  • Useless Chiefs, can’t even win a derby :evil:

    But never fear, Keith Brown-nose will organise a penalty for the Chiefs right on the 80th minute :mrgreen:
