Super Rugby: 100 done for Aaron Cruden and the Chiefs

From Checkpoint, 6:27 pm on 7 August 2020

Cancer survivor and World Cup winner - the curtain will fall on Aaron Cruden's time in New Zealand rugby this weekend.

The former All Black ran out for his 100th and last game for the Chiefs last weekend, and will watch his beloved team from the stands in Wellington on Saturday night before heading to Japan to join the Kobe club.

The 31-year-old first-five returned to the side this season after a couple of years in France, and while he's loved being back, the Chiefs are winless in Super Rugby Aotearoa and have just one match left to send Cruden off on the right note.
