Show Preview

The Chiefs need to bounce back from their shock loss to the Reds last week when the host the Melbourne Rebels… in Sydney. Follow along as Round 4 of Super Rugby Trans-Tasman concludes with live scores on The Roar from 3pm (AEST).

The Rebels’ inability to travel to New Zealand given the Victorian COVID-19 outbreak has seen this game moved to Sydney; however, the Rebels aren’t in a great place to make the most of that advantage.

It’s been a disaster of a tournament for the Melbourne-based side thus far, losing all three games handsomely and scoring a competition-low 43 points. It follows an underwhelming Super Rugby AU tournament in which they failed to make the finals and parted ways with coach David Wessels.

The Chiefs have the unwanted mantle of becoming the first New Zealand side to lose to an Australian counterpart, when they went down to the Reds in Round 3. Given they lost the talismanic Damian McKenzie to a red card mid-match, they did perform creditably to close the margin to six points after a 33-3 first half; but their hopes of backing up their Super Rugby Aotearoa runner-up effort with another final appear all but shot.

McKenzie will miss through suspension thanks to that red card, while Luke Jacobson will captain the side with regular skipper Brad Weber to start on the bench.
