The Chiefs head to Durban this morning as the new leaders of the super rugby competition.

They unseated the Stormers with a 39-33 win against another South African franchise the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein yesterday morning while the Stormers tasted defeat for the first time, against the Crusaders 31-24 in Christchurch on Saturday night.

Crusaders coach, Todd Blackadder says after a patchy start to the season the win was the best performance of the year.

He says strict adherence to the game plan paid off and that's been lacking.
