The Chiefs have scored one of the best tries of 2016 against the Force tonight.

The try - finished off by Damian McKenzie - saw the Chiefs go 80 metres in a stunning team move.


After Sam Cane won the ball at the breakdown with a committed move, seven passes were strung together in the move down the left wing.

Several offloads kept play moving and not giving the Force any chance to recover or set up their defensive line.

James Lowe, Brad Weber and Aaron Cruden starred in the move, while McKenzie showed impressive fight after being smashed in a tackle on halfway, but getting up and linking up with Cruden to receive the final offload and dot down.

The Chiefs went 80 metres in 17 seconds, and will have a hard task to beat that effort for the rest of the season.
