Chiefs Talk Up Brumbies' Challenge

The Chiefs don't expect travel fatigue to play a role when they host the Brumbies in a most unexpected Super Rugby final at Waikato Stadium in Hamilton on Saturday. The majority of pundits had predicted a Bulls-Crusaders final in Pretoria, but the New Zealand and Australian Conference champions notched courageous wins to set up a Hamilton showdown. The defending champions upset the recent form book with a breathtaking 20-19 semi-final win over the Crusaders before the Brumbies conjured a greater upset in toppling the Bulls 26-23 through a last-gasp try at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria to reach their first final in nine years.
