The Chiefs flung the ball around like a hot spud in their 9-try win over the Force

Beauden Barrett was on form too when the ‘Canes beat the Kings in Wellington yesterday.

CENTRE CHARLIE NGATAI crossed the whitewash four times as the Chiefs racked up nine tries in a 53 – 10 win over the Western Force in Super Rugby this morning.

Led by out-half Aaron Cruden, the Chiefs showed no fear in possession; willfully flinging and flipping it on, away from any target the Force tacklers had set.

The results were phenomenal. You don’t have to wait long for the try of the game, but just watch the whole clip below.
