Super Rugby Aotearoa runners-up the Chiefs were made to work very hard against the Western Force with only a missed conversion from Domingo Miotti in the final seconds of that match securing Clayton McMillan’s side a 20-19 triumph.
After losing to the Reds in the Super Rugby AU final, the Brumbies came back strongly in their Super Rugby Trans-Tasman opener against the Crusaders last weekend. After trailing by 12 points at the interval, the men from Canberra eventually suffered a heartbreaking 31-29 defeat in Christchurch.
Young fly-half Noah Lolesio had a chance to clinch a draw when he lined up a conversion to Rob Valetini’s try in the game’s dying moments but his kick was off target.
