Highlanders vs Chiefs Live Stream & TV Channel Super Rugby 2018 Full HD
Super Rugby action returns to Fiji when the Highlanders and Chiefs go head-to-head in what promises to be an exciting New Zealand derby in Suva on Saturday.
With just three rounds of matches left before the tournament’s knockout stages, both these teams are on course to reach the play-offs with the Highlanders currently occupying fifth position and the Chiefs sixth spot in the standings.
Matches between the Highlanders and Chiefs are usually entertaining affairs with plenty of thrilling action. The Chiefs have won their last two games against the Highlanders, though they had lost six games on the bounce against them prior to that set.
The Highlanders have won four of their last five games at home against the Chiefs, with three of those four wins coming after trailing at half-time.
Although this is a home game for the Highlanders, the Chiefs will be quietly confident as this will be the third time that they will be in action in Suva after previous encounters there against the Crusaders in 2016 and 2017.
But the prospect of playing in Fiji does not faze Highlanders head coach Aaron Mauger.
“We have known since the start of the year we were playing the Chiefs in Suva and we know to be a consistent team we have to be able to perform at any time, in any conditions, anywhere,” he said.
“This is a great opportunity; the team is focussed on delivering a good performance for our supporters and the rugby public of Fiji.”
Meanwhile, Chiefs boss Colin Cooper expects an entertaining game, with the Chiefs ready to embrace the challenge.
