Leaders were struck by the second wave of Covid

Chiefs coach Clayton McMillan is confident the club will play this weekend despite being hit by a second wave of Covid-19 on the team’s team.

The Chiefs host the Force in Hamilton this Saturday, after returning from a last-minute win over the Rebels in Melbourne on Sunday.

McMillan told NZME that about eight or nine players are currently infected with Covid-19.

“I’m not free to point out people, but there is definitely a second wave coming through our environment that has a significant impact on availability and choice. That’s the players and the management. And to be clear, they’re also all they do not have”. have been infected in the past.

“We, like most teams, had a good part of our team that got it early in the season and another 10 or 12 that for one reason or another did not seem to get it when everyone else did. a number that has, I think we probably see similar things happening in the community.

“It’s what it is. It presents another challenge. We just have to embrace it and move on.”

McMillan is confident that the Chiefs will continue to have a full team on Saturday.

“100 percent sure at this stage. It would take something very important not to play a team. So no drama.”

The Chiefs are battling for a possible place in the quarter-finals with two games left for the regular season. They are currently in fourth place, three points away from the Hurricanes and Waratahs.

This Saturday is their last home game before heading to Suva to play Fijian Drua.
