6:51 am on 1 April 2012

The Chiefs bided their time before smashing the New South Wales Waratahs in the second half to win their Super Rugby clash 30-13 in Hamilton on Saturday.

The shaven-headed Chiefs players, sporting shear hair-cuts to raise money for charity, scored two tries after the break and conceded only three points to notch their fourth win of the season from five matches.

The Waratahs held more than 72 percent of the territory in the first half but still found themselves trailing 13-10 at the break.

Robbie Robinson, Sona Taumalolo and Liam Messam scored the tries for the Chiefs with Aaron Cruden converting all three and also kicking three penalties.
