Chiefs v Blues Rugby Match Preview

Chiefs – In the other camp, the Chiefs have lost hooker Samisoni Taukei’aho to a leg injury sustained in the semifinal against the Hurricanes last weekend. Tyrone Thompson will get his first start of the season as a result as he packs down between Ross and Dyer. The only other change to the starting lineup comes in the back row, with Daniel Rona dropping to the bench, Etene Nanai-Seturo shifting out to the left wing, and Shaun Stevenson joining the 15 at fullback. Manaaki Selby-Rickit comes in on the bench as second row cover.

Blues – Just one change for the Auckland outfit ahead of the final as they are bolstered by the timely return of their captain Patrick Tuipulotu in the second row. His recovery from an MCL injury picked up in the quarterfinals means he will start at 4, with Darry pulling on the number 5 jersey and Beehre dropping to the bench. Bryce Heem also joins the side among the replacements as he returns from a calf injury.
