Catch the Crusaders if you can! Will they ever be stopped?

The Chiefs tried to end the 12–match unbeaten run last night but failed to last the test in a pulsating, high quality game.

The 31-24 victory over the Chiefs at the ANZ Stadium in Suva sounded a warning that 2017 is the year of the crusade for the men in red and black.

Unbeaten after 12 games, the Sam Whitelock-captained side seized control after being down 13-17 at halftime.

The Chiefs could have got a draw at the death but two lineout throws by Hika Reid failed to find Brodie Retallick and it was game over for the gallant Chiefs.
