The Chiefs have broken their losing streak by beating the Hurricanes.

Trailing 26-7 at the interval, the Chiefs scored four second half tries to snatch an improbable 35-29 victory.

The result means the Chiefs didn’t suffer their 12th straight defeat in Super Rugby. The result also ensures that the Hurricanes remain winless in 2021.

Fullback Damian McKenzie was the main player in the comeback. The All Black was at his dynamic best, creating one of the tries of the season – an 80m kick return that ended with Brad Weber scoring under the posts.

Chiefs 35 (Kaleb Trask, Chase Tiatia, Brad Weber, Naitoa Ah Kuoi, Luke Jacobson tries; Damian McKenzie 5 cons) Hurricanes 29 (Salesi Rayasi 2, Luke Campbell, Ricky Riccitelli tries; Jordie Barrett 3 cons, pen)
