Highlanders, Chiefs win Super 15 derbies

The Otago Highlanders and Waikato Chiefs pulled off upset wins in derby matches in the second round of rugby's Super 15 to give an unexpected cast to standings in the five-team New Zealand conference.
The Highlanders marked their first match in a new indoor stadium at Dunedin by beating seven-time champions the Canterbury Crusaders 27-24 in Saturday's all-South Island contest, while the Chiefs ran in four first-half tries to beat the Auckland Blues 29-14.
Otago's win left it unbeaten after two rounds and at the top in New Zealand. The Chiefs are 1-1 after their first-round loss to the Highlanders and hold second place a point ahead of the Crusaders, who also have a one win-one loss record.
