The Chiefs assistant coach Wayne Smith says he's not suprised by the start the South African sides have made in the Super Rugby competition.

The Bulls and Sharks are unbeaten, while the Bulls, Cheetahs and Stormers had wins over New Zealand sides last weekend, the first two in New Zealand.

Smith's Chiefs were beaten 36-34 by the Stormers last weekend and on Saturday morning take on the new South African franchise, the Kings in Port Elizabeth.

The Crusaders host the Bulls in the other New Zealand-South Africa clash this weekend.
