Third championship title in sight for Chiefs

The Chiefs are in the race for a third Super Rugby championship title, and today the side left for Canberra, Australia, ahead of their clash against the Brumbies on Saturday.

Liam Messam says the term 'three-peat' is enough to get the side motivated.

The last time the Chiefs played the Brumbies in April, they got a 41-23 thumping.

And supporting the 'Spread the Anti-Violence Message' campaign has played a part in the side's preparations this week. 

The starting line-up is expected to be named tomorrow.
