Sivivatu magic sparks Chiefs to Blues rout

7:00 am on 22 March 2009

The All Blacks winger Sitiveni Sivivatu scored four tries as the Chiefs thrashed the Blues 63-34 in their Super 14 rugby match in Hamilton.

The Chiefs ran in nine tries in total as their All-Blacks laden backline ran riot against a porous Blues defence.

Richard Kahui, Brendon Leonard, Liam Messam, Lelia Masaga and Callum Bruce also scored tries in a clinical Chiefs performance.

Joe Rokocoko dotted down twice for the Blues while Isaia Toeava, Anthony Tuitavake and replacement Jamie Helleur all scored tries to ensure the visitors at least came away with a bonus point before.
