CHIEFS IN NO MOOD FOR CHARITY

Chiefs coach Clayton McMillan has made a massive 11 changes to his team which takes on the Western Force in Perth  but don’t expect the visitors to button off.

Anton Lienert-Brown back to strengthen Chiefs backline even further.

The Chiefs have already confirmed top spot in round-robin play which guarantees them home play-offs through to the final if they make it that far and on form this season it’s hard to see anyone denying them the Pacific Super rugby title.

Mid-fielder and our regular guest on AbsolutelyFamous Alex Nankivell is one of the regular first choice players in the run on side alongside skipper for this match, Anton Lienert-Brown.

The Chiefs have spent the week in Perth preparing for this clash against a Western Force side which is so far unbeaten at home this season and still have a mathematical chance of reaching the play-offs if other results go their way and they beat the Chiefs with a bonus point.

Alex Nankivell - In form and part of a lethal Chiefs backline.

Nankivell said coach McMillan and his assistants are always looking for improvements but were very pleased to have beaten the high flying Brumbies in Canberra last week 31-21, a result he said boosted their confidence.

The host of fringe players getting a rare chance to start should work in the Chiefs favour, although the home side will be desperate to put on a good show after their worst performance of the season last week in going down14-52 to the Rebels.

While Nankivell has signed to play for Munster next season, he is still hopeful of making the New Zealand 15 side which visits Japan and the All Blacks Word Cup squad.
