So many times I've heard someone say "2013, the year of the Highlanders".

C'mon guys, the Chiefs have played two games, and while neither was flawless or season-winning, there's enough evidence to suggest 2013 is the year the Chiefs will finally establish themselves as more than a one season wonder.

The game against the Cheetahs is a perfect example of how the Chiefs have combined their usual excitement with a defence worthy of naming themselves as the best there is.

The first half they battled out against a very impressive Cheetahs' attack, in a manner that would frustrate the Crusaders.

The second half they let rip with their attacking brilliance, and proved their depth to the extent that there is enough to say, the Chiefs will be the best team in the Super 15 this year.
