Chiefs book S15 final spot

2012-07-27 11:18

Hamilton - The Chiefs booked a place in the Super Rugby final for only the second time Friday when they hung on for a narrow 20-17 win over the Crusaders in Hamilton.

In a cliffhanger semi-final the Chiefs held off a late charge by the seasoned Crusaders, who had a chance to equalise in the 75th minute but saw Dan Carter's 45-metre penalty drop under the bar.

The Chiefs celebrated the final whistle as if they had already won the championship, but had to wait for Saturday's second semi-final between the Stormers and Sharks to find out their last opponents.

If the Stormers go through the tournament climax will be in Cape Town, while a showdown with the Sharks would be played in Hamilton, as home advantage in the Super 15 playoffs is based on how the teams finished in the regular season.

Refreshed from a bye last week while the Crusaders faced the Bulls, the Chiefs opened at an extreme pace that threw the seasoned red-and-blacks off their game plan.

Making light of their inexperience at knockout rugby, the Chiefs forced their opponents off their stride behind the advantage line, and into uncharacteristic handling errors, turnovers and missed tackles.

"It's pretty unreal at the moment, I just have to look at the scoreboard and let it sink in a little bit," an elated captain Craig Clarke said as he left the field.

"It wasn't perfect. A couple of scrums went backwards and a couple of lineouts were overthrown so it certainly wasn't perfect, but it was good enough."

Even so Crusaders captain Richie McCaw was in no doubt the better team won.

"We made crucial mistakes and never got our game going which probably comes down to a good Chiefs team but we probably lacked a bit of composure as well. You can't win games when you haven't got that.

"The Chiefs have set the standard all year, there's no doubt about that. From our point of view it was disappointing but they probably deserved the win."

Flyhalf Aaron Cruden had the Chiefs in front with a penalty at the end of the opening passage of play, and while a Carter penalty levelled the score, the Crusaders were never ahead.

With loose forward Liam Messam at the head of a hungry pack, the Chiefs' bullying tactics forced the visitors into bumbling passage of play that resulted in two quick tries.

The first went to Taumalolo when he burrowed over the line in a mass of bodies.

There appeared to be an illegal double movement but the television match official was only asked to rule on whether a try was scored, and not on any illegalities leading up to the grounding of the ball.

A counter-attack from fullback Robbie Robinson then put the Chiefs deep into Crusaders territory, where Sonny Bill Williams found a gap to send Messam across the line.

The Crusaders stayed in touch with a second Carter penalty and a Ryan Crotty try on the stroke of halftime.

The opening minutes of the second half were dominated by penalties, two to Carter and one to Cruden to narrow the Chiefs lead to 20-17, but despite the Crusaders attacking relentlessly they were unable to score again.

While the Crusaders' dream of an eighth Super Rugby title was wiped out, the Chiefs found themselves in the final for only the second time, having been thrashed 61-17 by the Bulls in South Africa in 2009 in their first appearance.

      Lets hope the Stormers can do what they been doing 14/16 times this season! I back my Stormers big time but im a little bit worried about tomorrow! SFL

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-27 11:27

      Few things I noticed Kaplan is rather fat They high five Dan Carter for kicking a penalty out at the dead ball area Too many tries , this isn't basketball Rucks hit, a lot Bit boring cos they didn't defend on their lines enough and the score wasn't 9-6 at the end Craig Joubert defo cheating at scrum time with his penalties Nick mallets not in the studio

      I guess since the SA supporters will always cry about bryce.. We can cry about unfairly given penalties and tries by Joubert. Typical south african, doesnt want to play the crusaders so he fuc ks up and none of the south africans can see it caus they are so fuc king one eyed

      Since the Cape Converters have been supporting the Saders they haven't won the cup. You traitors have cursed the greatest team in rugby history. Chiefs deserve to win, I'd say the Sharks probably deserve to be in the final more than the Stormers.

      Jco - 2012-07-27 21:24

      Cape@ Your team went down! Just as the Sormers will go down! Sitting in the Bay of Plenty, I enjoyed it so much when the SADERS were beaten. Some of their supporters bad behaviour reminds me of some Stormers supporters! I hope the Sharks beat the Stormers and silence their big mouths!

      They must just be careful not to make any mistakes in the Stormers half, then they will be punished by 3 points according to Lionel

    It's going to be difficult for the Sharks in Hamilton next weekend but they should make it seeing that they are the best team in the S15 at the moment.

      john.maree.90 - 2012-07-27 11:25

      aye you fine upstairs? How can the team that is 6 on the log be the best team?

      newbornr - 2012-07-27 11:57

      No direct flight from NZ to CT, but there is one on sunday morning from CT to NZ!

      TravieGrif - 2012-07-27 12:04

      Well John, it is a point that many pundits are making at the moment, and that is that the Sharks have been the form team in the latter part of the season. That is what Brandon said. We are not at the top of the log because we had a poor start to the season, but AT THE MOMENT there are many who believe that the Sharks are the best around. Question is whether we are able to break down Stormers defence at Newlands, and if we are going to be able to get the better of the impact that the travel will have.

      john.maree.90 - 2012-07-27 12:21

      @ Travie... I think its going to be one hell of a game tomorrow but I think home ground advantage and travel factor will play a big role for the Stomers to take this one.

      raymond.romans.5 - 2012-07-27 12:24

      I wonder why they don't have a 2 week break between semi and final. This is a travelling competition after all. It would be fair on all sides.

      bfvillet - 2012-07-27 13:21

      @travie i see gavin rich selected a bok team with mostly sharks and no bulls players i think the reality of finishing first and six will hit the sharks in the face like 2nd and 4th just did.Everyone has been talking up the sharks and how good they are if so where were they earlier in the season there is a fact which Super rugby is defined by homeground advantage and travel fatigue. Playing the chiefs minus messam next week thanks to Kaplan is the better option.GO STORMERS

  • david.s.duncan.1 - 2012-07-27 11:25

    Crusaders were average today. They may have history on their side but this year have looked ordinary. Well done Chiefs, deserved final appearance. Just glad we are now going to have a new winner

    it's gonna be a great final at NEWLANDS next week .. THE MIGHTY STORMERS and the chiefs haven't played in this tournament this year, and it's fitting that the top 2 teams will play for the first time, in the final .. HERE WE GO STORMERS, HERE WE GO !!!

      paul.legrange.14 - 2012-07-27 13:35

      Guys !! You have to be in the final to play in CT!!!

      gsaker1 - 2012-07-28 03:19

      Yea sure mate the Crusaders are overrated - give me a break - they have made the final 10 times and won it seven u clown and had Carter slotted that goal it would have still gone to extra time but uncharacteristically Carter scuffed the ground in the follow through with his boot. They came to within a whisper and weren't even at their best which tells they are in no way overrated - mate what ignorant rugby planet are u on? Congratulations to the Chiefs they deserved their win and I guess I don't care who wins tonight except I'll go for the Sharks as they play more entertaining rugby and then the final will be in NZ most kiwi's will be going for the Sharks tonight for obvious reasons

    Well done to the Chiefs, bit disappointed that a South African team didn't get to smack the smirks off those arrogant Crusaders faces (especially if it was done by the Stormers in the final), but nonetheless excited for tomorrow think we are in for a awesome game. I would love to see the Stormers vs Chiefs final would be justified by the log positions, but no matter what happens at least we know that a South African team are in the final vs a NZ team which is stunning. All the best to both teams tomorrow and lets just have a good game.

      Geez, Tom... that is beyond the pale. Trolling is one thing, but to wish permanent injury on anyone just because you don't like their team is not on. You are an idiot who likes to make stupid comments - I understand you suffer from a delusion that your comments are faintly funny. I ignore them most of the time, but this is unacceptable. - 2012-07-27 20:52

      Tom do you have any idea how hard it is being dis-abled doing what you love, I can speak from experience as a man who was dis-abled doing what I love by a rouge car driver who decided to take a short cut across our off-road racetrack while a race was in progress. My man let me tell you it is a experience I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. So too wish it on a player just cause you looking for attention, that is just plain crude. I hope for your sake it never happens to someone you know or love.

    Some sharks will lie quietly, unnoticed, until their prey comes along, then suddenly snatch their unsuspecting prey, so stormertjies beware of the danger,gevaar,ingozi.

      @Siyolise mtshan'am ndirhakel' ukukuvumela. Kodwa 4 i-purpose yomboxo walapha ndifuna iStormers zigqithe.

      Ingxaki wena Lona, akhos'qiniseko sokuba kwa ezoz'stormers zizaw'lenza ixesha kwi chiefs, ndiyaniva ni bhuda ukuba isharks zizaw'dinwa kwi final zibethwe, kodwa into endiyaziyo isharks okoko zisothusa wonke umntu kweziveki zidlulileyo, cacile zizaku qhubeka zisenza njalo nangoku.

      @Siyolise ngumnqweno wam intoba.iisharks ziwine kodwa zininzi izinto ezinokwenza ukuba zingaphumeleli.

      @lona kuyawbonakala khona, @ Cape you are very irritating to say the least.

      nathan.barnes.503 - 2012-07-27 20:57

      Cape is deliberately trying to be irritating. By responding to his comments you have given him validation and satisfaction. Best way to deal with a troll: ignore them to death.

    It was a great game and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This result leaves me with mixed feelings… I would love to see the Trophy in SA, my heart is with the Sharks to thump the papsakke but my logic tells me to support the papsakke if we want any chance of an SA win. Sadly the Sharks will not beat the Chiefs in Hamilton and admittedly the papsakke could win the series simply because of the home advantage should they reach the final. I never ever thought I would support the papsakke but I have no choice…………. Blou Bul Groete

      one little piece of information nobody seemed to catch on to so far - the 3 teams remaining in the contest are the 3 teams that lost to the bulls the years they won the trophy - so at least one of the 3 is going to be able to erase the nightmare of losing the final to the bulls. Its gonna be a hard game against the Sharks - but I believe my Stormers can do it. But before anyone goes on to call me arrogant, if my beloved stormers lose tomorrow, next week I will be rooting with everything I am worth that the sharks win it against all odds.

      To pretend laugh, or pretend cry, that is the question. What can one do when "your team" is knocked out of a competition, but "your team" is obviously not your team anyway? Well I guess you put up a brave face and pretend that all is well. Kia Parra!!! Hehehehehe...

  • smellarat.smith - 2012-07-27 20:55

    The standout players for me were Tuamalolo and SBW, Imagine a team with both Bismarck and Tuamalolo!

    Some of you are so stupid, glad I don't live in SA any longer. You class people by what team they shout for, you're like kids- albeit mentally behind a few years. I am a Capetonian so by def I am an arrogant ignoramus that doesn't like other teams, screw that logic. I have always voted for the sharks though because it's their style I like. I didn't give them a chance this year but hell did they come back. I hope they win this one, but don't for one second think the Chiefs or Stormers can't snatch this one.
