  • FULL TIME - LIONS 23 CHIEFS 17 - The Lions almost let it slip but they were the better side for the longest period in this game and they deserved the win winning by 6 points. The Lions 20-0 lead was reduced to just 3 after a great fightback by the home side who scored 17 unanswered points but they ran out of time as Jantjies late drop goal made it a 6 point game and the away side were able to play it out. Lions now will go home with the win and the Chiefs remain 4th in the NZ conference and will have to try and turn it around next week 
    '
  • DROP GOAL - Jantjies makes it 23-17 
    79''
  • There's a turnover in the ruck and the Lions have it on the 22 and they can now try and waste time and play this one out 
    78''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION - Chiefs now only trail by 3 with 3 minutes to go. 20-17 
    77''
  • Try
    TRY CHIEFS (Tumua Manu) - Wow, we have got a big finish coming up here as the Chiefs get a try they really needed as McKenzie's kick to the right sees the Chiefs to it first and Manu is there to support and he ends up with it and he goes into score and the home side are not out of it yet 
    76''
  • Nice touch finder has the Chiefs inside the 22 and now with 5 minutes remaining, they need to score in this next phase of play 
    75''
  • A chip kick over the defence almost produces a result but the Lions can clean it up and then boot it down field but the home side are back on halfway looking to mount an attack. They need to score very soon to keep themselves alive 
    73''
  • While the Chiefs have done well to get themselves back in this game, they are slowly running out of time and the Lions now will have a chance to go on an attack 
    71''
  • More possession coming here for the home side as they try to get up over halfway to start an attack but the Lions defence isn't allowing them to make much ground 
    69''
  • The Chiefs momentum is halted there as the line-out isn't straight. Lions will now have a chance to compose themselves and try to slow things down as they still have that 10 point lead 
    67''
  • MISS - It stays at 20-10 in favour of the Lions 
    65''
  • Try
    TRY CHIEFS (Nepo Laulala) - Well how about this. The Chiefs have gone back-to-back and have another try to bring the home crowd to their feet. They have gone the length of the field through several phases and it's the right side that produces another try as the Lions can't recover and Laulala crashes over from close range to cut the gap on the scoreboard to 10 points 
    64''
  • MISS - McKenzie misses from the sideline
    62''
  • Try
    TRY CHIEFS (Sean Wainui) - Finally, the Chiefs have gotten themselves on the scoreboard as a win from the scrum sees a run down the short side and then on the next phase, the home side spread the ball out to the right and Wainui is the one to finish it off to get his team their first points of the evening 
    61''
  • We are halfway through this 2nd half and there is yet to be any points added to the half time score. Chiefs have had a lot more chances to get themselves on the scoreboard but the Lions defence has been very impressive and have not allowed anything through.

    59''

  • HALF TIME - LIONS 20 CHIEFS 0 - The Lions are well and truly on top of this one at the break as they take a 20 point lead into the sheds at half time. 2 late tries has given them the lead they deserve after their dominance and they are now on course for a big win if they can keep it up in the 2nd half. The Chiefs have been by far the 2nd best side tonight and they have been dominated in the scrum and all other facets. They face a huge test to turn things around in the 2nd half.

  • Welcome to Hamilton where the Chiefs host the Lions in Friday night action. The Chiefs go into this one with a 3 win 1 draw 4 loss record and they will want to improve upon that record in front of their home fans tonight and they will face a stern test. The Lions come into this one with a 4 win 4 loss record and sit bottom of the South African conference. They will want to win tonight to get away from that position while the Chiefs also want to improve their position in the NZ conference. It's a tough one to call. Kick off next
