The crowd love it. The cow bells are loud and Hamiltonian's are proud. Their side is on the board.
Latimer throws a pass which is very nearly intercepted, but instead the Chiefs break down the left hand side. Still in possession now on halfway. They are starting to look more settled in possession now.
You could almost say they are finding their feet in this one. PENALTY CHIEFS.
Not rolling away is the call. A good chance for Cruden to pull the Chiefs back within three.
From right infront and 40m back, Cruden slots it. Brumbies 9 Chiefs 6.

Not a perfect kick from Cruden but he won't be complaining. Was a bit of a low, wobbly old thing.
Brumbies back on attack. But what a tackle from Tameifuna. BAM. The crowd loves it.
Chiefs turn the ball over and Anscombe fires into touch...... but it's too far.
Kuridrani took the hit from Tameifuna but it looks like the Chiefs No.3 is somehow worse off. He's on the sideline getting treatment.
Brumbies lineout on the 22. Just over ten minutes left in the first half.
PENALTY CHIEFS. Brumbies joined the ruck incorrectly. Cruden belts one out over halfway.
Chiefs win another penalty from the lineout. The theme of the first half is....... penalties.
Brumbies have conceded six, and the Chiefs four.
Good chance for the Chiefs now. Lineout on the 22.
The throw is untidy but the Chiefs tidy up. Tameifuna shunts the homeside up past the 22.

Cruden kicks his third. After going down 9-0 the Chiefs are now level.
Brumbies kick-off is long and the Chiefs will bring the ball back to halfway. Silly mistake from the Brumbies. Eight to go in the first half. Could it be costly?
Messy scrum on halfway. It's a re-set. Everyone loves a re-set.
PENALTY BRUMBIES. The 12th penalty of the half goes against the Chiefs on halfway. Nick White is going to have a long range pop.
White doesn't even get close. Chiefs catch it 10 metres short and try to counter.
Brumbies turn it over, but then concede a penalty for obstruction. The game has really struggled to find any flow with so many stoppages.
Cruden fails to find touch with the penalty. Mogg responds with a huge kick downfield. Chiefs scrum.
Out of nowhere. Lealiifano snapped up a loose pass from Kerr-Barlow and sprints over the line untouched.
We are checking upstairs for offside. Looks good to me.
Kerr Barlow swung the pass right from the breakdown, it went through the hands of Elliot and Lealiifano gambled and won.
