    Chiefs v Force Sat 21 May 2022

    From Planet Rugby:

    Super Rugby Pacific: Chiefs to field team against the Western Force despite Covid-19 outbreak

    The Chiefs host the Western Force in Hamilton this weekend and McMillian is confident his team will field a side despite eight or nine players contracting the virus.

    ďIím not at liberty to point out individuals but there is definitely a second wave coming through our environment thatís having significant impact on availability and selection. Thatís players and management. And just to be clear, itís also all of those that havenít previously been infected,Ē McMillian told NZME.


    ďWe, like most teams, have had a good portion of our squad that got it early on in the season and another 10 or 12 that for one reason or another just didnít seem to pick it up when everyone else did.
    Thereís now a number that have, I think weíre probably seeing similar things happen in the community.

    ďIt is what it is. It presents another challenge. We just need to embrace it and move forward.Ē

    "we're confident we can beat the Force with the Waikato under 14 development squad"

    Going to be a tough week with three games.

    Going to be very hard without an out and out jackeler in the loose forwards, only locks on the bench and lock at eigthman, and no Manasa!

    I assume Kunzele out with HIA protocols, so I do not mind Reesjan moving one out, give him a bit more time and space to develop.

    Size-wise, Pugh is more in the backrower build than a lock. He'll do fine at 8. 5 line-out jumpers is interesting.

    Surprised they didn't give Kahui the start against his old side

    Personally I think Koteka and Callan have been 2 of our best this year so will struggle without them

    Chiefs team looks pretty close to full strength despite their apparent COVID cases. Think it's going to be another painful game to watch.

    Chiefs Kaleb Trask, Emoni Narawa, Alex Nankivell, Quinn Tupaea, Chase Tiatia, Bryn Gatland, Brad Weber (co-c); Luke Jacobson, Sam Cane (co-c), Pita Gus Sowakula, Tupou Vaa’i, Josh Lord, Angus Ta’avao, Bradley Slater, Aidan Ross.
    Reserves: Samisoni Taukei’aho, Josh Bartlett, George Dyer, Samipeni Finau, Mitch Brown, Kaylum Boshier, Xavier Roe, Rameka Poihipi.

    Prior had given a lot to the force but I think he has had his time, he's been very poor

    It bothers me a bit that it feels like opposition teams get away with more than we do when camped on the line. Maybe they are just better at piercing it than we are.

    It's been pretty poor all year. Medrano is not a good scrummager.
