SR: Hurricanes 45, Chiefs 8

url

Just as is the case with the other New Zealand derby, there are off-field distractions that could potentially trip up one of the teams.

Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett had hoped his revelation of a move to Cardiff (in Wales) in a couple of months would not attract headlines. He was, badly, mistaken. Hammett confirmed this week that he has signed with the Cardiff Blues for three years and will depart at the end of the Super Rugby season.
