Rennie pleased with the way Chiefs held on

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie says that he was pleased with the way his team kept attacking against the Bulls and earned a draw in Pretoria.

The Chiefs effectively won the contest even though they drew 34 all as the visitors scored five tries and took three points from the match including the bonus point.

The Bulls had to settle with taking just two points from the match as they could only score three tries.

Rennie says that he had expected his players to be more accurate but says he was pleased with the spirit in the final 10 minutes when they came from 16 points down to draw level.

“There are a lot of teams that would have folded today and got a bit of a spanking in the last 10 minutes, ” said Rennie.

“It is a group of guys that don’t know when to give in…today it was good enough to grab three points. “

“I am really proud of the boys, it was a helluva comeback with a lot of character shown, ” he said.

“We lost the kicking battle really, we kicked poorly and we didn’t hang on to enough ball and our lineouts struggled in the first half.

“With 11 minutes to go and down by 16 points we are happy to take three points out of it. “

The Chiefs travel to Bloemfontein this weekend where they will face the Cheetahs who will be coming off a bye.
