NZ Rugby General Manager Neil Sorensen called in on the Chiefs training session this week to present the conference trophy - the second one for the Ruakura-based team. The conference trophies (one each for New Zealand, Australia and South Africa) are smaller versions of the main competition trophy.
The Chiefs are hoping it make a full set again this year.
On a more sombre note, the Chiefs, Crusaders and fans at Waikato Stadium will pause briefly just before kickoff to remember the tragic passing of Takapuna Rugby Club player Willie Halaifonua.
