The Hurricanes and Chiefs get us started on this final weekend of round robin Super Rugby, with the Hurricanes still in with a shout of reaching the playoffs, and the Chiefs in the position to do them a favour, seeing as they have already qualified.
The Chiefs though, are still not secured of a home final, should they get that far, and will have to pick up some points in this match to ensure they stay clear of second placed Stormers.
The Hurricanes need to pick up a full five points and hope that either of the Sharks or Bulls do not pick up the full house, so that they sneak into that final play-off spot.
