How teams shape up for Super Rugby final


PREVIEW OF SUPER RUGBY FINAL:

SATURDAY, August 3

Chiefs v Brumbies at Waikato Stadium, Hamilton, 7.35pm

Head to head: Played 18 - Brumbies 11, Chiefs 6, Drawn 1

Chiefs at home - Played 8 - Brumbies 4, Chiefs 4

Last clash: Round 4 2012: Chiefs 29 bt Brumbies 22 at Tauraunga

It's not the final most were expecting, but you won't hear too many complaints on either side of the Tasman.

The Chiefs' one-point victory over the red-hot Crusaders last week delivered New Zealand the second Super Rugby final in Hamilton in as many years, while the Brumbies' staggering 26-23 upset over the Bulls in Pretoria kept the Aussie flag waving Hong Kong ip networking.

These two sides favour different brands of rugby and it will be fascinating to see which style comes out on top.

The table-topping and defending champion Chiefs have scored the most tries and points this season, but have also had the least amount of possession out of any Super Rugby team .

The Brumbies have slotted the most penalty goals and have been playing a territory-based game that operates off the back of kicking trio Jesse Mogg, Matt Toomua and Nic White.

Their South African World Cup-winning coach Jake White has instilled a sense of belief most would not have thought possible when the side slumped to 13th place in 2011wood cabinet storage.

Both sides hope to head into this match with an unchanged line-up, however the Chiefs are sweating over the fitness of explosive winger Lelia Masaga - who scored a pivotal try against the Crusaders last week.

While the Brumbies look to be peaking, history isn't on the side of travelling teams in finals matches.

In 18 years of Super Rugby, no Australian side have won a final after crossing the Indian Ocean in the lead-up week, claimed any type of finals victory in New Zealand, or won a championship from outside the top two (Brumbies finished third) omega 價錢.
