Chiefs Country

Hamilton is the home base of the Waikato Chiefs, a rugby team that competes in the Super 14 competition against other teams from Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. Tonight is a very important derby against the Canterbury Crusaders. A full house of 25 000 is expected for the game.

UPDATE: In an upset, the Chiefs beat the Crusaders 18-5!

What kind of game are they playing? Soccer? Sorry for not knowing but good luck to them!

Only now do I realise that I never mentioned that they are rugby teams! People in the USA are probably not familiar with the game, but it is religion in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa! Thanks for commenting!
