Boy Richie looked poor. Hope hes not hoping for a WC jersey (could be 1/4 if he does).

Chiefs too good and saders too bad.

Canes still 7/7, good to get all the byes out of the way.

Chiefs robbed by TMO in 78 min.
That Canes player cannonballing the Chiefs lock knee with no arms should go for a skate.
Exciting game none the less.
Peace.Via superior firepower..

Agreed. Shocking decision by ref and TMO. Especially the TMO
ONLY WHEN THE LAST TREE HAS DIED AND THE LAST RIVER BEEN POISONED AND THE LAST FISH BEEN CAUGHT WILL WE REALISE THAT WE CANNOT EAT MONEY.

That's more like it 34-20 v Bulls. Pulu was superb at halfback which creates a real selection dilemna with Weber Thumbs Up

A good result, which the Chiefs needed, and great to see that they have the depth in the team to cover the loss of key players. Well played by Ross Filipo who stepped up from club rugby to cover the locks dilemma for 70 minutes - indeed well played by the whole team but the Bulls didn't play that well so lets hope the boys don't get too ahead of themselves. Damian McKenzie has a huge future ahead of himself and must be very close to All Blacks selection. What a nuggety little player he is!
TAB account is looking a little better after that one.

Huge game next week against the Highlanders.
After the Chiefs,the Highlanders are #2 team to follow for me .(Battlers from the provinces/sort of, in the pro Rugby era)
Brilliant that indoor venue.
This is always the best part of the season for me.
High drama,drop a game,out of the play offs,love it.
Whats the stadium like in New Plymouth?
Never been there,but the grudge match against the `Canes would make a great 1st visit I guess.
Great talent sacking up at the business end of the season for the Chiefs(ABs too perhaps).
Good on you RotoVagas  for putting on a great turnout for our Boyz.

36-9 v the Highlanders is a hiding. Chiefs were disorganised, Messam's leadership was missed. Well done Highlanders, they have booked a semi spot.

Cheerz Brodie,great stats,have not lost a game when you have played this season.
So come finals time the Chiefs need a 3rd or 4th place finish on the ladder to have a home game before the SFs,right?
Maybe even a  home grand final if results go our way.
Be great not to travel out of NZ in the play offs though.(for the Chiefs fans) 
Wonder if the Chiefs tactically will rest any players for the Canes game at NP?
Bet the Canes rest a few of their boys.
And why not!Bonus for topping the table,plus the bye coming up for them.
Choke time approaching for the Canes(historically speaking).
Who has done some number crunching,as in what teams need how many points to jockey themselves into the best position(excluding top 2)?
Well done Chiefs for securing a play off spot.
Cheerz.

been a hard season for we die hard Cantabs - poor start, lack of consistency - no excuses, just have to suck it up.  On the plus side a few key players showing some good form going into the international season and good to see Kieran Read back.
 
I thought if ever the Chiefs were going to stand up it would have ben tonight, and pre game thought they would have beaten the under strength Canes.  There's a bit of work to do before they take on the Highlanders next weekend.
 
Well done the Canes - yeah I have been waiting for a choke too, but the Crusaders game a side they have been fairly classy.  Hard to see them getting beaten.
 
Looking forward to the AB's first squad of the season being named - cant see too many surprises but will be interested in who pairs Savea on the wing and also second string halfback and fullback.  Cant see Jane or Dagg making it, but then again those struggling for game time and form have previously been given early season AB games to play themselves in.
 
And if all else fails there's a few pretty handy Steeplechase and Hurdle Races coming up over the next few months!!!!

Yep,Highlanders deserve to march on.
Chiefs been all over the show since Cruden keeled over.
Chiefs did well to make the play offs really.
Was not too sure about the kicking plan from the Chiefs staff last night.
Shows how important a 1st class kicker is come penalty time.
Will be putting my support behind the Highlanders now,no disrespect intended to the `Canes,just backing the underdog mentality I guess.
See you here next season men.

Good work `Canes and Highlanders setting up a all NZ final.
I bet the All Black selectors are stoked with this outcome too.
So whatever the result next week,this means that NZ Super Rugby will have had 4 teams win the Super  Rugby comp outright,and all 5 Super Rugby teams make a Super final.
Well done.
The whole franchise will cop a great buzz with their 1st time Super Rugby title.

I saw the extended highlights of both playoffs yesterday.
The presenter said the TAB was paying 200:1 for a `Canes-Highlanders final.
At the start of the comp.
Big $$$$ if you had a $10er on that.

watched both semis in Vanuatu with a few Kiwis who were staying in the same complex.  We were joined by a group of Aussies who opened the conversations with 'what about the AFL mate?'. Funnily enough they didn't seem that keen to talk about the league either - not that the last three Kiwi/Kangaroo tests were ever mentioned!!!!!.  By the end of the evening it was smiles all round and only the NZers were remaining.  They only had Fox Sports coverage so it meant we were entertained by the Aussie commentators - not sure if got any air time over here but Phil Kearns made a few comments that raised a few eye brows.
 
Anyway great results, and regardless of the outcome tonight we are looking fairly healthy going into the business end of the season.  I'd love to see the underdog win, but 'canes will be hard to beat.

Great spectacle, great result. Highlanders full of passion and played for each other. Not sure we could say the canes choked but they weren't aloud to play with as much accuracy as we have seen this year and a couple of key mistakes at vital times in the game cost them badly.

The entree has concluded.

Well done Highlanders.
Poor/tuff night for J Savea out wide and B Barret with the boot.Happens to the best of them.
 Marty Banks with the droppie.Great foot work by that young man at broken play.
Dramatic final.
I thought the Ref,touchies and even the TMO had a excellent match for a final.ie no one even mentioned their calls really.
The Choking tag will be all over Sport Talkback radio tomorrow for the `Canes I bet.
Certainly is some bad juju ongoing for the `Canes.
Should be a great tour of the Highlanders catchment with the trophy on the way.
Mayor Timmy will be up for it to be sure.
I have noted the bleating about the cost of the new Dunedin stadium has abated this season!!!
Again,congrats to the 2015 Super Rugby CHAMPIONS. The Highlanders.


Peace.Via superior firepower..
