The chiefs will look to keep winning to secure best positions on the points table while the blues cannot afford to lose.
We still do have a chance to finish top but that will depend on certain teams to beat the Crusaders. We can only control what is in our hands.
The blues are in a do or die situation and will have to go all-in to beat the Chiefs.
The players are highly motivated and always up for such encounters. Will surely put up a good match.
The chiefs must be unhappy with the result of the game in Suva where they out-scored the crusaders yet lost the game 24-31. We made a few defensive errors and they made us pay for it. We should have grabbed the opportunities given to us before and also after the half time.
We had a look at the Blue’s game vs the Stormers and there were a few strange yellow cards decisions given as red cards. It will not be easy here. The Stormers team despite missing the 1st fives was able to put pressure. The blues will suely be desperate to win here.
Rennie said that Charlie Ngatai was symptom free of concussion for 4 days but we did not want to take a chance. Another instance was with Sam McNicol.
We will tread around that very carefully. He has missed the entire NPC through concussion.
Stephen Donald had made a comeback from concussion but will not be considered going through certain protocols.
In consideration for the midfield are Tim Nanai-Wiliiams, Jonny Faauli who has finished his suspension of 4 weeks and Alex Nankiville who will return as cover in the squad. Wing Toni Pulu could have been considered after his hamstring.
Another issue we faced was the goal kicking. We feel our best is Aaron. Though he did not have a good night by his own standards, we feel he did quite well. He is bit harsh on himself.
To make the decision of who would kick on Friday, we will see how he along with Damian McKenzie kick during this week- Rennie said.
