BATTLE READY: Chief Sam Cane

The Chiefs have received a double boost ahead of their Super Rugby semifinal showdown with the Hurricanes in Wellington on Saturday (9.35am).

Flanker Sam Cane is set to start the match after recovering from a concussion suffered against the Stormers last weekend, while midfielder Seta Tamanivalu, who missed the match because of a knee injury, is also ready to go.

Having travelled to South Africa for the one-off match, the Chiefs have been on the road for a while.

But Cane tells “The group seems to travel really well, funnily enough.

“I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve got a young group or what, but we travel and everyone gets on really well and then we turn up at training and everyone’s got the right attitude, which is bloody pleasing.”

Of the blow to his head, Cane adds: “My dad watches rugby pretty closely and he said he couldn’t even spot it.

“It was just before halftime when they scored, a guy just stepped back, I came in to assist and we just hit heads.

“I was the one who actually went to the doc at halftime and said ‘I’ve taken a little bit of a bang’ so I went and did the tests.”
