Chiefs players react to Super 15 victory
As sporting fairytales go, the Chiefs as 2012 Super Rugby champions is right up there. Their transformation from conference easy beats to title holders in the space of 12 months should really raise suspicion were it not for the fact they owe everything to hard work, commitment, bravery, simplicity and an enormous amount of creative talent from both players and coaching staff. They are worthy champions and probably more than that: they have the look of a side ready to build a dynasty. The foundations are rock solid. Every part of their game has held up under the most intense scrutiny all season and especially last night.
