Simms Davison & the Chiefs shut down the Crusaders

Simms Davison & the Chiefs shut down the Crusaders

It was described as having "a Test match atmosphere" in the build-up and was to be a truly super clash in front of a full house at Waikato Stadium.

The Chiefs were back after a 'bye' the previous round while the Crusaders looked dominant as ever but come kick off, found themselves making tackle after tackle in the opening minutes.

Sitiveni Sivivatu scored the opening try for the Chiefs, followed by this 'ripper', started by stand out stand-off, Stephen Donald.

The Crusaders, after Brett missed an easy (by his standards) penalty, never looked like they were truly in it and only showed the odd bit of brilliance amongst an overwhelming amount of bad decisions with ball in hand and poor handling.

Final Score: 18-5 to the Chiefs
