The Chiefs impressed in their opening Super Rugby trial match last week when they beat the Highlanders 36-14.

An extended squad has been named for the trial but players who have not been included are Brendon Leonard who sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a fractured cheek bone and Lelia Masaga who has a minor knee injury.

Prop Ben Afeaki is also out with an infected foot and Solomoana Sakalia is sick, but both are expected to return next week.
