Sheryl Ririnui was a woman on a mission get tickets to the Chiefs v Hurricanes Super 14 rugby match on Saturday or else.

Seventeen thousand of a possible 25,000 tickets had been sold by this morning. Mrs Ririnui queued for tickets yesterday at Waikato Stadium. "I got up to watch them [the Chiefs] win on the weekend and I think they can do it again," she said. Mrs Ririnui was entrusted with getting tickets for husband George, children Rebecca and Josh, and grandson Levi, 12.

"They told me to get down here early to get them. We just want to be part of it all."

Also in the queue was Hamilton man John Prescott who also believed the second-placed Chiefs could knock over the table-topping Hurricanes and possibly push on for a home semifinal and even a home final. "The Chiefs had a shocking start and everyone wanted the coach's head, but they've come right when it's mattered. The Hurricanes are our bogey team, so I hope we can do it."

The Hurricanes have won their last four clashes against the Chiefs, including a 39-19 hiding last year in Wellington.   Angry

In the previous 13 matches in Super rugby, the Hurricanes lead 9-4.

Chiefs marketing manager Pat Mellsop said there were still 8000 tickets left for the match, but about half of them were in the green zone, a standing-only area.

"Obviously, if you want a seat, you're going to have to hurry and get a ticket.

"Obviously we've never been in this one versus two position before, so we need a big crowd there to cheer the boys on."

Mr Mellsop said there were still quality seats "sprinkled around".

Mils to stay despite offer

Mils Muliaina will lead the Chiefs into Saturday night's Super 14 top-of-the-table Hurricanes clash relieved his immediate rugby future has been decided.

Confirmation the Chiefs skipper and All Blacks fullback had re-signed with both the New Zealand Rugby Union and Waikato Rugby Union through until 2011 was made today by the NZRU.

NZRU chief executive Steve Tew said Muliaina had chosen to commit himself further to New Zealand rugby through until the next World Cup to be held in New Zealand "despite very attractive offers to play overseas".

It is understood the 28-year-old test veteran turned down a massive money offer from a European club, thought to be in the realms of Dan Carter's $1 million-plus deal with Perpignan.

"It is a big weight off my shoulder now that the decision has been made," Muliaina said.

"I can now just concentrate on continuing to make the most of my New Zealand rugby career"

Muliaina is the most capped All Blacks fullback of all time and the seventh most capped All Black, having played 68 tests so far, and is in his third season with the Chiefs after transferring to Waikato from Auckland at the end of 2006.

50:21 But the ref has called that Masaga was offside and the Canes get a penalty and they opt for the kick at goal. The kick has missed.   Grin

Apart from a few shades of brilliance from Stephen Donald, I thought both teams like quite average and tired. As this was most likely an All Black trial match, I hope that has no effect on the All Blacks later on in the year.
