It was a first half slaughter as the Chiefs led 42-0 against the Highlanders at halftime before running away with a 45-22 win in their Super Rugby clash at the ANZ Stadium in Suva, last night.

Chiefs assistant coach Tabai Matson said their physicality made the difference in the match.

“It was a physical match,” the former All Blacks and Fijian rugby international said.

Matson pointed out that first five-eighth Damian McKenzie was their go-to-man despite the fact that he was still adapting to his new position after moving from fullback.

A disappointed Highlanders flanker Shannon Frizell said: “I wants to return next year and win a game in Suva.

“It was a good game, but I came in as a replacement,” the All Blacks flanker added.
