    Chiefs beat Brumbies in pre-season trial

    The Chiefs have continued their pre-season Super Rugby preparations with a 38-26 win over the Brumbies in Queensland.


    A strong first-half performance has seen the Chiefs down the Brumbies 38-26 in Wednesday's pre-season trial on the Sunshine Coast.

    In what was a dominant display from the outset, the Chiefs racked up a 33-7 lead just after half-time, with Brad Weber scoring a hat-trick.

    The Brumbies then fought back to make the scoreline respectable.

    Mitch Brown, Liam Messam and Johnny Fa'auli scored the other Chiefs tries.

    There were plenty of encouraging signs from Weber, who is currently looking to stake his claim for an All Blacks squad role in 2018.

    Test regulars, including Damian McKenzie and Brodie Retallick, also enjoyed their first hit-outs of the season, with the former at first-five.
