Cruden warns don't write off Chiefs

11:36 am on 27 July 2012

The first five Aaron Cruden says the Chiefs were bitterly disappointed in their final two games of the Super Rugby regular season and is warning punters not to write them off in tonight's semi-final at Waikato Stadium.

The Chiefs fell to narrow defeats to the Crusaders and Hurricanes before the playoffs, losing their grip on first place and handing home advantage in the finals to the Stormers.

Cruden concedes the Hamilton based side were a tad gun shy in those two losses but says they'll be throwing everything at the Crusaders tonight.
