    Halftyd en die score is 18-13 vir Chiefs! Paar shocking besluite deur ref en tmo, maar tog bly die refs begin die Chiefs blaas vir hul ongeoorloofde spel by aanvallende rucks! Skelm bliksems!

    Gees, great span gees and supporter gees, and it beats some of the 3/4 empty stadiums we have been seeing like with some Lions games last year.

    Passion makes this game great.
