enjoyed the type of rugga the Chiefs played this year, it was tenacious, full of flair and instinctive with the guys giving the ball some air and all the players keen to have a run. The Chiefs deserve to be in the final moreso than the Crusaders who thrive on cheating at the ruck led by their deliberately cheating captain. You kinda never know what the Chiefs are upto as they follow their instincts instead of a coaching manual on their way to the tryline. In a word I find them refreshing. It's a miracle that we still see that sort of rugby when everything these days is structured and natural flair is obliterated. No coach can coach instinct, just like you can't coach flair, it's like players who possess natural speed....you either have it or you don't.
So I hope they beat the Crusaders, there's no reason why they can't but on the other hand it's easier to plan against a structured team like the Crusaders than it is to plan against the Chiefs. Well that's my humble opinion anyway.
