Hurricanes beat Chiefs in Wellington




The Hurricanes have played the Chiefs 34 times in Super rugby since 1996 and the Hurricanes have won 17 matches, drawn 2 and lost 15 times.

The Hurricanes 17 wins out of 34 matches gives them a record of winning 50% of their matches against the Chiefs regardless of venue.

  • Nine of the last 11 Super Rugby meetings between the Hurricanes and the Chiefs have been decided by margins of eight points or fewer, with the sides evenly split in that period, winning five games each and sharing one draw.
  • The Hurricanes lost their last home game, against the Crusaders, however they’ve not lost consecutive matches at home since a run of four such defeats stretching across the 2013 and 2014 campaigns.
  • The Chiefs have won their last two away games, they’ve not enjoyed a longer such run since winning their first five road matches of 2016.
  • The Hurricanes and Chiefs have each crossed the try line 11 times in the final quarter of games this year, only the Jaguares (12) have crossed more often in the final 20 minutes of matches.
  • Ben Lam (Hurricanes) made four successful offloads in Round 10, no player made more (level with Samu Kerevi), although it is the Chiefs’ Anton Lienert- Brown who has made the most overall in 2019 (21).

Match detail

We are waiting for the kick off.

In the meantime why not have a look at the match preview.

The Chiefs kick off and the match is underway.

1.00: The Chiefs make positive start to the match and go through five phases. The Hurricanes defend and turn the ball over. The Chiefs get the ball back but lose it forward.

3.00: The Hurricanes win the ball from a scrum and get the ball to Jordie Barrett who slices through the centrefield of the Chiefs and runs all the way to the posts to score. TRY!

4.00: Beauden Barrett adds the conversion.

6.00: Jordie Barrett gets the ball 48m out from a Chiefs clearance kick. He runs toward the line. And just keeps running all the way to the line sidestepping Chiefs players. TRY! 

7.00: Beauden adds the conversion. It’s “the Barrett show”.

9.00: The Hurricanes break through again and this time on the wing. Ngani Laumape almost gets away but doesn’t have the pace so he passes the ball and it just goes to ground. 

15.00: The Hurricanes are keeping the pressure on the Chiefs. As they press forward in the Chiefs 22 there is a high tackle on a Hurricanes player. Referee Rasivhenge allows the Hurricanes to play on but when the ball goes dead he calls them back for the penalty. They choose the line out.

16.00: The Hurricanes win the line out and go through a couple of phases in the forwards and Kane Le’aupepe gets driven over to score. TRY! 

17.00: Beauden Barrett adds the conversion.

21.00: The Chiefs work the ball into the Hurricanes 22. They go through 6 phases but its slow. The Chiefs get the advantage call for offside. When the ball dies the whistle goes for the penalty. The Chiefs choose a scrum. It’s almost directly in front of the posts.

23.00: The Chiefs win the scrum. They go through 8 slow phases but Luke Jacobson breaks off and goes for the line and scores as he rolls over it. TRY!

24.00: McKenzie adds the conversion for the Chiefs.

28.00: The Chiefs get back in the Hurricanes 22. There is a ruck on the tryline and Ataata Moekiola dives over – gets tackled but reaches out and gets the ball down. Or does he ? The TMO will decide. It’s a TRY! 

29.00: Marty McKenzie takes the conversion kick but misses.

31.00: The Hurricanes attack the Chiefs in their 22. TJ Perenara goes for the line after getting the ball from Matt Proctor and scores. The officials briefly discuss it and the try is awarded. TRY!

32.00: Beauden Barrett adds the conversion.

37.00: The Hurricanes get a line out just outside the Chiefs 22. When the ball goes in it is not straight so the Chiefs have a scrum just outside their 22.

39.00: The Hurricanes angle in at the scrum so the Chiefs have a penalty. They kick for touch as the siren sounds.

40.00: The Chiefs win the line out and attack on the half way line but lose the ball forward which ends the half.

It’s half time.

The half time score was Hurricanes 28 Chiefs 12

Beauden Barrett kicks off and the second half is underway.

42.00: The Chiefs come away with the ball from a scrum near the half way line. They run the ball after regaining it from a chip kick. The attack is initially stopped but the Chiefs change sides and they get the overlap which allows Lachlan Boshier to dummy and slip inside to score. TRY! 

43.00: McKenzie adds the conversion.

46.00: The Hurricanes win a scrum on the Chiefs 5m line. They drive over the line but get held up.

48.00: Rain has arrived in Wellington. Quite hard rain.

51.00:The Hurricanes win a scrum in the Chiefs 22. They move the ball outwide to Wes Goosen who beats Solomon Alaimalo for pace and scores. TRY! 

52.00:Beauden Barrett takes the conversion kick from almost the touch line. He looks to be on target but the wind catches it and he misses.

55.00: Ardie Savea creates a break by stealing the ball, Perenara gets the ball makes a lot of ground, he passes to Jordie Barrett but he runs out of space and passes to Savea who has 5m to go having got back to provide cover and bashes through a tackle and scores. TRY! 

56.00: Barrett adds the conversion.

60.00: Stephen Donald has come on for the Chiefs.

66.00: The Chiefs get the ball on attack and Anton Lienert-Brown makes half a field of space but he gets isolated. The Chiefs come up and recycle and move the ball wide but Solomon Alaimalo loses the ball as he tries to catch it.

69.00: The game has slowed to something of a grind now.

70.00: The Hurricanes win a scrum and chip the ball ahead. The Chiefs lose the ball and Barrett gets a boot to it. The Chiefs battle to control the ball and they get trapped behind their line and have to dot it down.

72.00: The Hurricanes win the scrum on the 5m line. Its scrappy though so they go through 5 phases without going anywhere. Then they pass the ball back to Salesi Rayasi who has just come on and he powers through a tackle and scores. TRY!
