Chiefs named for Investec Super Rugby Final
The Chiefs have announced their team to play the Brumbies in the Investec Super Rugby Final match at Waikato Stadium this Saturday night at 7.35pm.
Chiefs coach Dave Rennie is excited that the Chiefs are hosting their second consecutive final. “There has been an enormous amount of hard work to get us into this position and we are excited to be playing in front of the people who mean the most to us,” said Rennie.
Rennie knows that it will be a highly emotionally charged occasion with Craig Clarke, Lelia Masaga, Toby Smith, Richard Kahui and Brendon Leonard all heading off shore at the end of the season.
“They have all been a big part of the Chiefs family and we want to send these outstanding Chiefs men out on a high with back to back titles,” said Rennie.
Dave Rennie has named the same team that beat the Crusaders in the semi final. There is a bracket around winger Lelia Masaga who still has to get through the last training; however Rennie is optimistic he will play.
Fans are encouraged to get to the game early to avoid queues and make the most of the pre-match entertainment from Chiefs supporter Stan Walker. Gates open at 5.50pm.
The Chiefs and the Waikato Regional Council will run a free bus on game night. Buses start from 6pm from Hood St to the Stadium and back to Hood St after the match and leave approximately every 15minutes.
