Chiefs beat Sunwolves 27-20 in Super Rugby

HAMILTON, New Zealand (AP) The Chiefs overcame a courageous performance from the Sunwolves 27-20 in Super Rugby on Saturday, though the Sunwolves ended the match with only 13 players.

Fullback Damian McKenzie touched down once in each half as the Chiefs managed to do just enough in a hopelessly flawed performance to hold out the best ever effort by the Tokyo-based Sunwolves against a New Zealand opponent.

A try by center Derek Carpenter in the 67th minute, converted by Jamie-Jerry Taulagi who also kicked a penalty in the 74th left the Sunwolves only seven points behind the Chiefs.
