Show Preview

The Highlanders tackle the Chiefs in a Saturday night Super Rugby Aotearoa clash. Join The Roar for live scores from 5:05pm (AEST).

The Highlanders shocked the Crusaders with a 33-12 upset in Christchurch last weekend, while the Chiefs had the bye following back-to-back victories over the Blues and Hurricanes — their only two wins of the campaign to date.

The Otago outfit have been forced to make six changes to the line-up that stunned the reigning champions eight days ago, whereas the men from Waikato maintain a more settled team sheet for their trip to Dunedin.

With the Highlanders and Chiefs both sitting on two wins — one game adrift of the second-placed Blues — success tonight is vital if either side plans to challenge for a spot in the decider.

On home turf at Forsyth Barr Stadium, the Highlanders will start favourites to claim their third win of 2021 against the improving Chiefs.
