The second semi final of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific competition between the Hurricanes and the Chiefs this afternoon is expected to be a thriller given the recent results that the two teams have produced in the competition.

The Hurricanes have a perfect record in Wellington this year and have beaten the Chiefs both times they have met, and both previous meetings have followed a similar pattern where the Hurricanes have stormed out to an early lead and the Chiefs have fought back and then the Hurricanes have finished strong to clinch the win.

Hurricanes coach Clark Laidlaw says he is not sure the Chiefs are going to fear much as the games have been super tight this season.

Laidlaw says it is going to be a tight tussle and one they are all looking forward to.

Chiefs coach Clayton McMillan says the Hurricanes have always been a team to be respected.

McMillan says the Chiefs breathed a sigh of relief last year when the Hurricanes fell over at the quarterfinal stage because they are a dangerous team capable of beating anyone on their day.

He says the Canes are always well-balanced with plenty of x-factor backs who can score all over the place and some tough resilient in the forwards that have particularly grown in that space over the last couple of years.

The Hurricanes will host the Chiefs at 4.35pm this afternoon.
