Chiefs to host Crusaders in Super Rugby Pacific final
The final will be played next weekend between the two top sides in the competition, with the Chiefs securing a spot against the Crusaders and hosting their first final since 2013.
Contrary to the Crusaders’ thrashing of the Blues, the Chiefs in Hamilton had to work hard to defeat the Brumbies 19-6. To give his squad another week, hardworking lock Brodie Retallick scored the game’s only try in the 78th minute.
The Brumbies, who have been by far the finest Australian team over the last few of seasons, arrived in Hamilton playing with a chip on their shoulder, but the Chiefs were able to fight their way to the victory.
Who are the teams in Super Rugby Pacific 2023?
Twelve teams are taking part in the new competition with all sides put in one pool, rather than split into different geographic conferences.
The clubs for 2023 are:
- Western Force
- Queensland Reds
- NSW Waratahs
- Moana Pasifika
