Winger Lelia Masaga says that the Chiefs are all looking to end the Super Rugby season by beating the Brumbies in the final and winning back to back titles.

Masaga is one of five Chiefs players that will leave the Super Rugby franchise after the final and head overseas so they want to finish with a second title.

Masaga scored a crucial second half try in their Semi-final victory over the Crusaders and he says that there is no lack of motivation to play like they did for another week.

"It was very important to me," Masaga told Fairfax NZ News.

"We're all about BTB, which is back-to-back trophies, so our main goal was to win this game and hopefully have a final. "

"Our goal now is to win that and go away with two titles."

Another of the Chiefs Semi-final try scorers Aaron Cruden said that BTB also had other meanings for the Chiefs apart from "Back to Back" and was something they had really built their season on.

"It's been great for us because there was a bit of pressure leading into the season being defending champions but we wanted to walk towards that pressure and we're one step closer to going back to back now," Cruden said.

"I think it showed out there how much it really meant to us."
