Chiefs ponder their tighthead props

7:30 am on 1 August 2013

The choice of who'll start at tighthead prop is one of the main selection issues for the Chiefs coaches heading into Saturday night's Super Rugby final with the ACT Brumbies in Hamilton.

Ben Tameifuna started against the Crusaders last weekend, but had a few problems in the scrum and was replaced early by Ben Afeaki.

With the Brumbies having one of the best scrums in the competition, Chiefs coach Dave Rennie says who'll start in that position this week is being debated.

Winger Lelia Masaga is in doubt for the match after suffering an ankle injury in the semi-final, while co-captain Craig Clarke missed training Tuesday with a sore neck.
