Chiefs held on to win in horrible conditions in Wellington on Friday night against the Hurricanes, with Latimer scoring the only try in the match, 17-12 at full time. The Crusaders will be paying a visit to Hamilton this Friday, who after their 23-3 demolition of the Blues are looking ominous, will be a real test of where the Chiefs are at at this stage of the competition.
The Rebels won their first match against South African opposition as well on Friday, holding out the Stormers to win 21-30, although the most talked about moment about the match was doubtlessly the penalty try for the home side! Well done anyway to the Melbournites. The Cheetahs bounced back to beat the Reds 27-13, and the Highlanders lost to the Bulls, surprise surprise, I wouldn't be surprised if the win against the Sharks will be their only one this season.
The Wallabies side to face the Lions has also been named, looks like Deans stuck to his guns regarding Cooper: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/i...per-misses-out
