  • FULL TIME - SUNWOLVES 30 CHIEFS 15 - A history making win for the Sunwolves who have won their first ever game away from home as they triumph over the Chiefs winning by 15 points. The away side thoroughly deserve their win and it's their first win of the season. The Chiefs now fall to 0-3 and they have a lot of work to do to turn their fortunes around.

  • MISS - The score remains 30-15 
    65''
  • Etene goes into score for the Chiefs with a short side play from the scrum win working for the home side. They now need a couple more of those in the time left to get back into this

  • HALF TIME - CHIEFS 3 SUNWOLVES 23 - A completely dominant half from the Sunwolves sees them take a deserved 20 point lead into the sheds at half time. They have been excellent.

  • The Chiefs have won both of the previous encounters against the Japanese side. The Sunwolves will look to spring the upset tonight as they will go into this one as big underdogs 
    '
  • Welcome to Hamilton where the Chiefs host the Sunwolves. It's been a disappointing start to the season for both sides with no wins between them so far so tonight will see one side claim their first victory of the season and the favourites will be the Chiefs who are at home tonight and they will fancy their chances.
