The 2023 Super Rugby season has started with the Chiefs beating the defending champions the Crusaders.

Despite playing at the Crusaders fortress in Christchurch, the visitors have come-from-behind and then pulled away for a big 31-10 win.
Trailing 10-7 going into the break, the Chiefs scored 24 unanswered points in the second half as they powered to a confidence-boosting victory.

The Chiefs finished third in the regular season standings last season, before being beaten 20-7 by the Crusaders at the semifinal stage.

In other games, the Blues had a huge 60-20 victory over the Highlanders, while the Hurricanes were too strong for the Reds in Australia.

The Brumbies also started with a win over the waratahs while in Suva the Fijian Dura won in the final minutes against Moana Pasifika.
