The Chiefs' Sitiveni Sivivatu

Brisbane – Sitiveni Sivivatu and Mils Muliaina scored two tries apiece on Saturday as the resurgent Chiefs beat the Reds 50-26 to return to the top four in the Super 14 tournament.

After withstanding a series of attacking raids early, the Chiefs dominated the six tries to four victory with flyhalf Stephen Donald directing traffic and scoring 23 points.

The Reds picked up a bonus point when flanker Daniel Braid dived over after pinching a Chiefs' lineout close the line in the last five minutes.

The Chiefs opened the season with three straight losses but have gained momentum since the return of All Blacks fullback Muliaina and have won four in a row.

Muliaina said: "It was pretty good. We were pretty hungry at the breakdown.

"We've got a bit of momentum now, got a few wins on the trot. We've got to home now and look forward to the Lions match."

The Reds went into the match on a week off following an upset home win over the Sharks.

Sivivatu went off with an injured should after crossing for two tries in the first 15 minutes, giving him six in two matches and helping the visitors to a 37-12 half-time lead.
