Hurricanes beat Chiefs 22-18 in Super Rugby

The Wellington-based Hurricanes ensured this will be their best-ever season in Super Rugby when they beat the Hamilton-based Chiefs 22-18 Saturday to likely clinch first place in the New Zealand conference.

The win was the Hurricanes' 11th in 12 matches this season, topping the franchise record of 10 wins in a season. It took them 14 points clear of the Chiefs in New Zealand and on the overall championships table.

Center Ma'a Nonu scored a try in each half for the Hurricanes, the second of which was his 50th in Super Rugby -- a record for an active player. His double also marked his milestone 50th appearance in midfield in combination with his All Blacks teammate Conrad Smith.
