The Chiefs claimed the Super Rugby title for the second successive year in an enthralling final against a gutsy Brumbies outfit.
By going“Back to Back” the Chiefs confirmed their status as one of rugby’s most professional teams in the past two years and showcased all that’s good about our national game.
But it was a big challenge against a Brumbies team that wouldn’t give in, tackled ferociously and played a territory based game.
The Chiefs soaked up the pressure and then turned it back on the visitors in a compelling last quarter to score vital points and take the Brumbies out of contention.
The Chiefs weren’t the only winners though.
SKY Virtual Tipping saw Gordon Speirs win the competition from Trevor Weaver and Nigel Harris.
This is a stunning effort given the roller-coaster results that the competition threw up. So congratulations to these three who week-in, week-out have been so consistent in SKY’s virtual competition. And given the fact this is the last one we will be running it makes the success even sweeter.
Thanks to everyone who played and don’t forget to tune in to the ITM Cup and Rugby Championship coming up on SKY Sport. For all the latest updates go to our Facebook page: skysportnz or follow us on Twitter @skysportnz
