The Second of Six Super Rugby matches this Saturday morning takes us to Hamilton where the Chiefs will take on the Waratahs.

The Chiefs come off a bye weekend, and have built up some good early season momentum with good wins over New Zealand opposition, and will hope to continue that against the Waratahs. Richard Kahui is back in the midfield and joins up with Sonny Bill Williams, who will face off with Tom Carter and Rob Horne, two in form centres at the moment.

The Waratahs come off a come from behind victory over the Sharks last weekend, and will take that with them on the road as they try and get their season back on track after a rocky start with losses against the Reds, the Highlanders and the Force. Brendon McKibbin retains his place in the starting line up thanks to a superb performance against the Sharks, in which he scored a try and took care of the kicking duties.

Chiefs: 15 Robbie Robinson , 14 Asaeli Tikoirotuma, 13 Richard Kahui, 12 Sonny Bill Williams, 11 Tim Nanai-Williams, 10 Aaron Cruden, 9 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 8 Kane Thompson, 7 Tanerau Latimer, 6 Liam Messam, 5 Brodie Retallick, 4 Craig Clarke (capt), 3 Ben Tameifuna, 2 Hika Elliot, 1 Arizona Taumalolo.

Reserves: 16 Mahonri Schwalger, 17 Josh Hohneck, 18 Michael Fitzgerald, 19 Sam Cane , 20 Augustine Pulu, 21 Andrew Horrell, 22 Lelia Masaga.

Waratahs: 15. Bernard Foley, 14. Tom Kingston, 13. Rob Horne, 12. Tom Carter, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Berrick Barnes, 9. Brendan McKibbin, 8. Wycliff Palu, 7. Chris Alcock, 6. Dave Dennis, 5. Kane Douglas, 4. Dean Mumm, 3. Sekope Kepu, 2. Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1. Benn Robinson (Captain)

Replacements: 16. John Ulugia, 17. Paddy Ryan, 18. Sitaleki Timani, 19. Lopeti Timani, 20. Jono Jenkins, 21. Sarel Pretorius, 22. Daniel Halangahu
