80' - Chiefs win 38-8
80' - FULL-TIME IN HAMILTON
77' - Nanai-Willliams without question the best stepper in Super Rugby. Far too elusive for the Lions' defence

76' - Call me a genius as TIM NANAI-WILLIAMS ducks and dives his way over the Lions' tryline for the Chiefs' sixth try of the night
76' - TRY to the Chiefs!

Chiefs lead 31-8 after 73 minutes
72' - TRY to the Chiefs confirmed!
BUNDEE AKI is the man to score the Chiefs' fifth try of the night

65' - And after all that, the Chiefs are awarded a penalty as the Lions 'hold on' at the ruck
63' - The dreaded scrum rests have now chewed a full THREE minutes off the clock.
60' - 20 minutes left in the match. Can the Lions mount something of a comeback?
They're right on attack and only trail the 'second half score' 7-5...
58' - Sudden burst of intensity by both the Chiefs on attack and the Lions on defence sees the Chiefs throw a forward pass near the halfway line

Courtnall Skosan in action (Gallo Images)
48' - Jantjies' conversion is away to the right and the Chiefs lead 26-8 after 48 minutes
46' - Stand up Warren Whiteley - leading from the front, he's been the form SA No 8 this tournament and he gets the Lions deep into Chiefs territory, before wing COURTNALL SKOSAN dives over in the corner for the Lions' first try of the night - and his third of the season.
46' - TRY to the Lions!
44' - Gareth Anscombe adds the CONVERSION and the Chiefs now lead 26-3 - and I wish I hadn't gone for a 17-point win...
43' - Oh dear, this could now get messy for the Lions. Damage control.com

40' - Commentators say TRY... TMO still pending...
40' - Another TMO decision pending...
40' - TRY to the Chiefs?
39' - Try to TANERAU LATIMER. Anscombe fails with the conversion
Chiefs lead 12-3 after 39 minutes
37' - Fair due, the commentators felt it was a knock-on but TMO Ben Skeen is happy it was legit!
37' - TRY to the Chiefs!
37' - Obstruction deemed fine, but looks like a knock-on...
37' - TMO checking obstruction and a possible knock-on...
37' - Another TMO decision. Have the Chiefs scored?
37' - A fairly scrappy half draws to a close with the Chiefs on the attack.
Can the Lions hold on?
33' - The Chiefs continue to frustrate their fans with some poor decision making. They've certainly gone off the boil in recent weeks and don't look like likely defenders of their Super Rugby title
Sorry boys that is a clear obstruction. Something we often see kiwi players get away with. Old trick - Brenden Nel
31' - 50/50 call. Lions got the benefit. Commentators still not convinced...
31' - Josh Hohneck costs his fellow front-ranker Nathan Harris what would've been one of the all-time greatest hooker tries. FACT!
31' - But the TMO disagrees and cancels the try!
31' - Commentator say 'NO WAY'...
31' - Potential obstruction by the Chiefs. At first glance it did look a little suspect...
31' - Or is it...
30' - TRY to the Chiefs!
27' - High tackle by Lions lock Martin Muller gives Anscombe the chance to stretch the Chiefs' lead... but he fails to land the penalty
25' - Scrappy play by the Lions after they effect a turnover, the ball goes loose and the Chiefs kick ahead for a lineout close to the Lions' tryline
23' - Anscombe steps up and converts his own try to give the Chiefs a 7-3 lead after 23 minutes
22' - The Chiefs finally display some patience and go through the phases and score through flyhalf GARETH ANSCOMBE
22' - TRY to the Chiefs!
20' - And we're half way through the first half (20 minutes have now been played...) and the Lions are full value for their 3-0 lead
18' - Courtnall Skosan busts through a gap showing a fantastic burst of speed, but knocks the ball on...
Credit to the Lions for doing all the playing at the moment.
Chiefs look a little shell-shocked. Coach Dave Rennie must be pulling out what's left of his hair...
The mooloo men and their cowbells put Jantjies off ... 0-3 ... Presume Boshoff will take the kicks from now - Front Row Grunt
15' - Confirmation it's GAME OVER for Chrysander Botha.
Unlikely he'll be ready for next week either
15' - Jantjies away to the left with his second penalty attempt.
Lions maintain their 3-0 lead after 15 minutes
13' - Concussion test for Botha - but doesn't look like he'll pass...
Replaced by Marnitz Boshoff
13' - It's all Lions at the moment. Impressive opening minutes from the men from Johannesburg
12' - Lions fullback Chrysander Botha goes down. Looks to be in a lot of pain
Lional Mopoe with an industrial start to the game ... Try saving tackle then millimeters from a try assisting kick! Lions look fired up! - Front Row Grunt
Lions the best scrum in the tournament on their own ball ... Chiefs just learnt that lesson ... Jantjies makes it 0-3 after 10 mins - Front Row Grunt
9' - Elton Jantjies' kick is OVER!
Lions lead 3-0 after 9 minutes
7' - Lions scrum MONSTERS their Chiefs opponents. Penalty to the Lions
And they elect to kick at posts
6' - Impressive play from the Lions as they break downfield and force the Chiefs to carry the ball over their own tryline.
5m scrum to the visitors...
3' - TMO confirms NO TRY and we're set for a 22m drop-out by the Lions.
Ominous signs though that the Chiefs' counter-attacking game could prove problematic for the Lions today
2' - Near disaster for the Lions and they attempt to run from inside their own 22m area - ala NZ style - but the ball is turned over and Lionel Mapoe puts in a try-saving tackle to deny Charlie Ngatai
0' - Chiefs kick off and the Lions clear to touch through new flyhalf Elton Jantjies - who takes out the local cameraman
0' - AND WE'RE UNDER WAY IN HAMILTON!
Cloudy and 12 degrees Celsius in Hamilton at present...
DID YOU KNOW?
The Chiefs and Lions played the highest scoring game in Vodacom Super Rugby history when Chiefs won an 18-try thriller 72-65 at Ellis Park in 2010...
LITTLE LOVE FOR THE LIONS
SuperSport in-studio guests David Campese and John Mitchell both going for a Chiefs win (as am I by 17), while Ashwin Willemse predictably goes for the Lions to cause an upset...
The Chiefs have made a staggering 14 changes from the side that lost last weekend to the Brumbies.
Clear indication of the incredible depth in NZ rugby.
FYI: The only man to retain his spot is flyhalf Gareth Anscombe.
