*I see SuperBru is stating the game to be played at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium in Tokyo, the game is actually played in Hong Kong at the Mong Kok Stadium. Football pitch, but happily the in-goal area can be extended. Expect a big crowd, also good rugby weather.
According to the Stuff website, the tourists are stripped of all their All Blacks for the fixture in Durban due to a clash with a national camp, and when injuries are also taken into account it means the Chiefs are going to be without a total of 20 players, from their originally contracted list of 38.
Each of the Kiwi Super Rugby team coaches are under instruction to rest their All Blacks from two games before next month's Test series against France, and All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has also felt it imperative to assemble his national representatives - in North Island and South Island groups - to give them added preparation.
Chiefs without 20 players for Sharks clash
Heads up to all the Chiefs team is very weak this week.
