Match detail

We are waiting for the kick off.

The Chiefs kick off and we are underway.

0.33: The Chiefs put the Bulls under pressure in their 22 and the Bulls kick the ball upfield into touch. We go to the TMO to check if he was in goal. The Bulls took the ball into their 22 so the Chiefs have a 5m scrum.

2.00: The Chiefs win a penalty from the scrum as Dean Greyling collapsed. The Chiefs will kick for posts.

3.00: Aaron Cruden takes the penalty kick but he misses from almost the touchline.

5.00: The Chiefs are keeping the Bulls pinned in their half. The game is being played at a slow pace so far. The Bulls win a scrum and Jacques-Louis Potgieter boots the ball straight into touch.

8.00: The Bulls win a penalty for putting the ball under the hookers feet. They take the quick tap and Potgieter kicks the ball upfield and the Bulls end up having a 5m scrum as the Chiefs took the ball over the deal ball line.

10.00: The Bulls win a penalty from the scrum so Potgieter has a shot at posts. He nails it and the Bulls lead.

12.00: The Bulls win another penalty so Potgieter kicks for the corner and the Bulls have a line out.

13.00: the Chiefs look to be going through the motions with nothing on and then Aaron Cruden slips a pass to Mils Muliaina who wrongfoots the Bulls backs and goes in to score. TRY!

14.00: Cruden takes the conversion kick and misses again. The Chiefs lead.

17.00: Potgieter goes for a drop goal but gets charged down. The Chiefs keep the ball alive and they attack. Horrell makes a break up the middle and Liam Messam gets the ball at pace and races in to score the Chiefs second TRY!

20.00: Muliaina concedes a penalty on the half way line. The Bulls slices the kick but it stays in so the Chiefs attack from inside their 22.

22.00: The touchie comes in to report a clean out by Asaeli Tikoirotuma on Victor Matfield so the Bulls have another shot at posts.

23.00: Potgieter takes the shot and nails it. He then goes off temporarily as he has a problem with his left eye. They will check for concussion as he says he "has stars in one eye".

24.00: The Chiefs try to attack down the wing but they knock on near the Bulls 22. We have a break for an injury. The game resumes.

27.00: J-l.Potgieter comes back on for the Bulls. The Bulls win a line out on the Chiefs throw and Hougaard chips ahead but the ball goes out.

28.00: The Bulls win the lineout but its scrappy. The Bulls get pushed back a little and they go to Ndungane. The Bulls have the advantage as they attack in the 22. They can't do anything so we go back for the penalty - offside.

36.00: We go to the TMO to check if there was a knock back or forward in that. No try is ruled. Knock on. We go back for an advantage/penalty to the Chiefs. Cruden will kick. He nails it.

38.00:There is an obstruction by the Chiefs so the Bulls have a penalty. They go for the line out which they win but the Bulls don't use it so the Chiefs get the put in at a scrum.
