    Both the Hurricanes and Chiefs will come into Round 14 of the 2013 Super Rugby season looking to build off wins last weekend when they meet in Wellington tonight. We’ll have live scores from 5.35pm AEST.

    The Chiefs’ narrow 22-21 victory over the Force last weekend was their third win in a row, largely thanks to the boot of Aaron Cruden, who booted five first-half penalties to get the home side the four points.

    The Chiefs’ 8-3 record leaves them sitting in second place on the overall Super Rugby ladder and the fact they’ve been able to get there without showing any of their best rugby is a scary thought for their opposition.

    Tonight they’ll travel to Wellington without the services of forward Sam Cane, who will miss with a back injury and is expected to be replaced by Tanerau Latimer in the starting XV.

    The Hurricanes sit perched mid-table in the New Zealand Conference with six wins and five losses.

    A win tonight would take them to within touching distance of the Crusaders, who sit third in the Conference.

    The Canes rebounded from a 34-point thrashing at the hands of the Bulls a fortnight ago by beating the Cheetahs 39-34.

    Despite having to return to New Zealand on a short back-up they’ll come into this game expecting to get a result.

    Can the Hurricanes keep their season alive with a win tonight, or will the Chiefs continue to show why they’re one of the competition frontrunners? Find out from 5.35pm AEST.

      and four points to the Chiefs winning in Wellington
      one for the Hurricanes


      A fair win I think to Chiefs in a close match, no controversial decisions, didn’t hear any negative comments re the ref I thought he was fine.

      HURRICANES have – bye, then away to Brumbies and Chiefs, Highlanders at home, Crusaders away

      CHIEFS have Crusaders home , bye, Hurricanes home, Crusaders then Blues away

      a loss here for Hurricanes is surely a season-ender in attempt for a wildcard spot, Crusaders/Blues can battle it out
      one point does nothing, a draw won’t help either


      Uncontested scrums – suits the Chiefs with a 7-man scrum

      and Hurricanes penalised 20m out, there goes the territory

      James Marshall on for Taylor as fullback for Hurricanes
      Reg Goodes on for ? not sure whos in the front row

      Not sure about the decision but nice to see some refs have the balls to give the yellow in that situation.

          Given for ben t hands in the ruck stated cynical play by ref. There were about 2 other infringements before that though and a canes player off his feet laying all over the ruck.

      Hurricanes Jeff Toomaga-Allen collapses with knee/ankle injury after just a few min on field
      pity if its serious as Monday he’s with the All Blacks wider training squad

      Ben May back on to replace him
      Hurricanes just can’t get thru this defence, a lot of left/right across the field but little forward progress in this half

      Shields penalised, another shot for Cruden this one at about 45m

      score remains
      Chiefs 17 – Hurricanes 9

      Afeaki off for Chiefs, Ben Tameifuna on

      Toomaga-Allen and Shields came on earlier for Hurricanes, now Tusi Pisi on also

      try Chiefs, after so much time defending get downfield and make the most of it
      Tanaerau Latimer crosses, Cruden can’t convert and Chiefs 17-12
      first time in game there has been more than 3pts difference

      Second charge down. Thats fairly unacceptable.

      a mess of scrums 5m from Chiefs line, and they are a mess, both side take turns, kicked thru by Hurricanes so 22m dropout,
      Perenara kicks Hurricanes back to 10m from line, they get ball from Chiefs lineout
      All come to nothing, Robinson clears to halfway
