    Argghhhh, tough luck to MP. Thought their forwards played pretty well.

    Loved the speed of the Drua backs and how they supported the ball runners.

    Defence aside, that was entertaining and fittingly went the distance.

    Ha that was good. Mark N with the casual pass and then Waltons pass somehow managed to stick

    No idea how that stuck.

    Good to see the young blokes back themselves. I think Walton has had a horror injury run and is finally getting to show his wares.

    I was a bit worried about everyone talking up Jorgensen, but so far he is proving those concerns invalid.

    Agh that was a tough watch. So many handling errors. So many stoppages. Highlight of the first 23 mins was the all to rare these days scything run from BB, cutting the defence to shreds. Thought he played well actually, made some good decisions, when to run, when to kick, when to take points. Choat ran/tackled himself to a standstill. Have been impressed with him over the last couple of games, would be interested to see his tackle stats. Suafoa also put in a good shift. And Plummer was pleasantly surprising, is beginning to put his stamp on that 12 Jersey with vision and distribution. That 51m kick was sweet. Roger who? Looked tough going in the heat, and one the Blues will be pleased to get out of the way without serious injury I think. Those vuvuzelas were bloody annoying.

    @ARHS said in Chiefs v Drua:

    If no Nankivell or ALB, Wrampling starts ahead of Rona in my view.

    Hopefully Nankivell is back, otherwise I expect Rona to start again. Wrampling is being used as a 2nd 5, like Poihipi, so one of them would have to play out of position as a combination.

    I want us to start with Finau over Sowakula also.

    Who starts at 6 will be the big call. Watching the replay today, I was interested to see Finau say he is about 1.96 m/118 kg, so taller and heavier than officially listed.

    Geez that Finau has the looks of a bloody good blindside, and has for a couple of years! Really excited to see how far he goes.

    Gleeson looks like a cross between Willie Viliami Ofahengaue and Toutai Kefu
    Good to see this sort of talent coming out of Oz Rugby ,scary as well from a NZ point of view

    If only the game lasted 70 mins. Those conditions were very foreign to NZ teams, and there weren't many Chiefs who didn't drop the ball at some stage. None of the subs really has much positive impact on the game.

    Nankivell looked disinterested on the wing.

    I am assuming Trask will be out with concussion so a big decision to be made on who plays at fullback. I think McMillan might go with Ioane.
