HIGHLIGHTS: Highlanders v Chiefs

What an awesome spectacle from these teams today! Both teams got off to a blinder in the first half and looked seriously evenly-matched. The second half was exactly the same despite the Chiefs going ahead for a considerable amount of time. The Highlanders showed their fighting spirit and get back to a level pegging at the 80 minute marker. Taking a look at the first 80 minutes show that both teams struggled a little bit with converting opportunities. Both teams could easily have had a higher scoring match, but if either team did get those points, we wouldn't have experienced the first golden point for Super Rugby Aotearoa 2021! Both teams went into the golden point looking like they could take it, the play that took place also proved to be as evenly-matched as the rest of the match but it was a penalty kick from McKenzie that landed the win for the Chiefs! The Chiefs now go into a comfortable spot in third place and will be ecstatic with an strong performance. The Highlanders will want to fix their smaller issues but won't be able to bash themselves too much after what was also a strong performance. Chiefs take the win in this thriller, 23-26!
