C-word not a bad one for the Chiefs against Crusaders

THE Chiefs are focused on the C-word ahead of their crucial clash against the Sharks in Durban tomorrow night - consistency.

Assistant coach Tom Coventry said the team was very disappointed with the 20-17 loss to the Highlanders at home in round one, that defeat coming after a record-breaking 40-16 win against the Crusaders in Christchurch.

"Being consistent in this competition is what it's all about, and backing up big performances is something every team needs to manage to get to the final," he said.

The Chiefs can demonstrate they have learned from the Highlanders' defeat by backing up last week's 28-19 win over the Stormers against the Sharks.

The players have prepared for the clash in the humidity of Durban by training with footballs covered in detergent.

"Last time we played here it was like playing in the rain," Coventry said.
