Kings v Chiefs - Live

Last updated: 15th March 2013  

Full TimeFull Time KINGS 24-35 CHIEFS

80 That's it! Liam Messam, in his 100th game, kicks the ball out to close proceedings. The Chiefs bag a full house of points, but well done to the Kings for hanging on until the end. Thanks for joining us, cheers!

Penalty79 PENALTY, CHIEFS, ANSCOMBE. 24-35. Gareth Anscombe secures the result with an easy penalty

77 The Kings aren't giving an inch and the handbags are out. Messam isn't happy with Petersen for taking his ankle out with his boot as he pulls the All Black down. Both front rows are quickly involved.

75 The crowd roars as Anscombe sends a penalty effort wide. The gap remains 8 points. Can the Kings sneak a losing bonus point here?

73 Back to their full compliment of players, the Chiefs are a different side now and are plying the pressure again, looking to put the result to bed.

Penalty71 PENALTY, KINGS, CATRAKILIS.24-32. The Kings fighting spirit continues to impress, and you know, they're still in this game. The drubbing most predicted will not be. Pulu is back from the sin bin.

68 The Kings have really opened up as they look to cash in on their extra man. A break out from their 22 featuring a great run from Petersen ends with Maku knocking on.

Penalty66 PENALTY, KINGS, CATRAKILIS.21-32. The Kings choose to take the points rather than push for a try. They fancy snatching a losing bonus point here.

64 The Kings are giving their fans plenty to cheer about, showing great heart to stay in this contest. Latimer coughs up a penalty right in front as the 14-men Chiefs struggle to contain the hosts.

62 Catrakillis misses the conversion.

TRY61 TRY, KINGS, ENGELBRECHT. 18-32. Great work from Jacques Engelbrecht, who shows great strength to drive over off the back of a Kings 5m scrum.

Yellow Card59 YELLOW CARD, CHIEFS, PULU. Augustine Pulu has just come on but is sent straight to the bin for a cynical foul that prevents a Kings try.

57 It's helter skelter stuff now. The Chiefs stop playing after a knock-on but Petersen almost catches them napping as he charges off in chase of a hack ahead. He can't control it in the Chiefs 22 to the disappointment of the crowd.

Conversion54 CONVERSION, ANSCOMBE. Another fine kick from the Chiefs full-back.

TRY53 TRY, CHIEFS, MASAGA. 13-30. There's the hat-trick for Masaga and the bonus point for the Chiefs. Masaga charges home from 20m out brushing aside the despairing tackle from Venter.

Conversion52 CONVERSION, ANSCOMBE.13-25. Easy extras for Anscombe.

TRY51 TRY, CHIEFS, CANE. 13-23. There was an air of inevitability about that. Sam Cane pounces from short range after the scrum. One more try for the bonus point for the Chiefs.

49 Hika Elliot rumbles over the line for a try! No! He's been held up. 5m scrum to the Chiefs.

47 Marcello Sampson gives away a penalty just outside his 22 for offside. The Chiefs choose a scrum rather than a shot at goal. That's a sign of confidence!

44 Once again the Kings are spending a lot of time in their own half. Just how much pressure can they absorb before the dam wall breaks?

42 Catrakilis fails to find touch with a penalty, allowing the Chiefs to counter attack. Play is taken to the Kings 10m line when it should have been around the Chiefs 22.

Second Half Here we go for round two! Can the Kings turn this one around?

Half Time KINGS 13 - 18 CHIEFS

Conversion40 CONVERSION, CATRAKILIS. 13-18. Easy extras for the home pivot. That's half time! It's been all Chiefs but the Kings are still in touch thanks to that late try against the run of play.

TRY39 TRY, KINGS, PETERSEN. 11-18. Sergeal Petersen grabs his third try of the campaign from 95 out after Masaga spills the ball on attack. Petersen picks it up and bolts home!

36 Catrakilis relieves the pressure with a good touch-finder but the Chiefs come roaring back in search of their third try before the break.

35 Tim Nanai-Williams has butchered a clear opportunity, hanging on when he had two men open on his outside. The Kings are still under the cosh though.

33 Anscombe's conversion attempt is wide.

TRY31 TRY, CHIEFS, MASAGA. 6-18. Brilliant inter-play between Cruden and Tim Nanai-Williams creates a a try for Masaga out wide. The crowd are baying for a forward pass but the TMO rules that all was legit.

28 Ben Afeaki gives away his third penalty in the first half-hour, taking Catrakilis out in the air. The Kings kick for touch but the line-out is stolen!

25 The Kings are enjoying their best spell of the game as they ply some pressure of their own in the Chiefs 22. Patient build up play is impressive. Messam is pinged for going off his feet. Catrakilis wil have a crack at goal.

23 Another injury blow for the Kings - full-back SP Marais is off with an ankle injury. George Whitehead comes on. Wimpie van der Walt is also off and Tomÿ s Leonardi comes on wearing 24.

Conversion21 CONVERSION, ANSCOMBE. 3-13. Under pressure from the ref to get his kick done inside the time limit, Anscombe splits the uprights with a wonderful kick.

TRY20 TRY, CHIEFS, MASAGA. 3-11. A fabulous build up from the Chiefs ends with a wrap around from Cruden, who feeds Masaga on the touchline and the winger only has a short sprint into the corner.

Penalty17 PENALTY, CHIEFS, ANSCOMBE.3-6. The Chiefs full-back finds the mark from long range.

16 A dangerous counter and chip ahead from Asaeli Tikoirotuma pushes Kevin Buys to go off his feet. Penalty to the Chiefs.

Penalty14 PENALTY, KINGS, CATRAKILIS. 3-3. We're all square! Catrakilis finds a gap and makes a break before Ben Afeaki is penalised for playing the ball on the deck.

Penalty11 PENALTY, CHIEFS, ANSCOMBE. 0-3. First blood to the visitors. Easy three points for Anscombe

9 It's relentless! Wave after wave of attack rains down on the Kings. The defence holds firm and the hosts get a penalty for a side entry. After referral to the TMO the penalty is overturned for a late tackle by Catrakilis on Nanai-Williams...that's rubbish!

7 Phew! Another let off for the Kings as Lelia Masaga can't hold onto Gareth Anscombe's pass with a clear run down the touchline to the tryline on offer. Masaga and Sergeal Petersen get some attention after a clash of heads.

5 The Kings clear their lines but not for long. The Chiefs have come to play and are attacking at full tilt already. Confirmation from the touchlines is that Darron Nell tore a hamstring in the warm up. That's a big blow for the Kings.

2 Close one! The Chiefs come desperately close to scoring the first try after a sweeping move down the left. Messam is stopped just inches short and loses the ball. 5m scrum to the Kings.

Kick Off Here we go! The Chiefs kick us off. Shaun Venter fails to gather the kick-off cleanly. The Chiefs have the first scrum. The Kings engage early and the Chiefs have the first chance to attack.

New Captain Steven Sykes leads the Kings out on to the park.

Late Change Kings skipper Darron Nell has been ruled out at the last minute. David Bulbring will start in his place.

Team news Liam Messam is poised to become the first Chief to play in 100 Super Rugby games. Chiefs coach Dave Rennie has made several changes to his starting line-up. Prop Toby Smith, lock Michael Fitzgerald, back-row Tanerau Latimer and Andrew Horrell all make the XV. Former All Black and multiple Super Rugby champion Ross Filipo makes his Chiefs debut at number eight

Team news Aiming to create a sense of continuity, the Kings have named an unchanged line-up. Captain Luke Watson remains on the sidelines following a throat injury sustained in the opening game against the Western Force, while lock Darron Nell retains the captaincy.

Welcome Hello and welcome to Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth! The Kings face their toughest challenge yet as they host the defending champions and the tournament's best attacking side. The Chiefs are smarting from a narrow loss at Newlands last week, so don't expect them to take any prisoners.
