Christopher Walken seemingly a big Chiefs fan.
"I am Liam Messam, the Chiefs are my tribe...." Inspirational pre-match ad being shown on the box, and we are very nearly ready to go. A lot of feeling out there tonight.
Team news from the Chiefs now. Masaga has passed his fitness test and will start. Robbie Robinson on the bench.
Perfect night in Hamilton. Firm underfoot, hint of a breeze, but a special night. Players making their way out onto the field now.
Brumbies enter to a chorus of cow bells and boos. The home faithful will play a big role tonight.
And now the Chiefs. The sell-out crowd erupt. What an incredible reception.
Fireworks, cow bells, screams.... what more could you want?
And we're away. Cruden kicks off and it's straight into the hands of Henry Speight.
Toomua kicks early, then so does Cruden, then so does Mogg. Early forceback. Brumbies with possession now just short of halfway.
Mogg fires down field into the hands of Masaga and the crowd erupt as he smashed into the Brumbies line. A long period of play comes to an end with a Brumbies dropout.
Away goes Peter Kimlin. Brumbies have a great attacking opportunity.
Chiefs are scrambling. Brumbies are 10m out in the middle of the park.
Patient buildup from the visitors. HEAD HIGH. Penalty Brumbies.
PENALTY BRUMBIES. George Smith pretends he is interested in a quick tap but fools no one before points to the posts.
Great start from the Brumbies. Should be an easy three for Lealiifano.
And it is, Brumbies lead 3-0.
Matt Vant Leven mis judges a high Brumbies kick terribly. Chiefs are penalised from the resulting play.
