The Chiefs have announced their team to play the Stormers in their Investec Super Rugby game at DHL Newlands Stadium in Cape Town on Sunday morning at 4.05am (Saturday 9 March 5.05pm SA time).

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie has made several changes to his side.  Mahonri Schwalger starts at hooker and Tanerau Latimer at No 6 for the first time this season, while Craig Clarke resumes his starting spot at lock and Liam Messam moves to No 8.

Charlie Ngatai starts in the No 12 Jersey.  Nick Crosswell makes his debut for the Chiefs and Andrew Horrell comes back in from injury.  Hika Elliot and Augustine Pulu join the reserves.

In an exciting new initiative to show their support of the current Investec Super Rugby Champions, Chiefs vehicle sponsor, Ebbett Volkswagen Hamilton have launched a unique, one-off limited edition Chiefs double cab Amarok. 

There are only 15 highly specified Chiefs limited edition vehicles being made, with each one displaying the perfect blend of pure Amarok design class and Chiefs branding. 

It is the first initiative like this for Volkswagen and one that local dealer Walter van den Engel from Ebbett in Hamilton is excited to bring to Chiefs country.

“As a dealership we are excited to be involved with the Chiefs; and to be able to produce a limited edition vehicle for the fans is very special,” said Mr van den Engel.

Chiefs co-captain Liam Messam thinks the initiative is brilliant. “To have an iconic Chiefs vehicle available on the market is just incredible - it looks unreal and I can’t wait to drive one,” said Liam.

“On behalf of the Chiefs I would like to thank Walter and the Volkswagen team for producing such an impressive looking vehicle.”

The Chiefs Amarok will be available in black or white, manual and automatic 4WD or 2WD and will boast all of the outstanding features of the Amarok with the addition of the following unique Chiefs enhancements:

  • 20” or 22’’ alloys with Chiefs center caps
