Taranaki's Super Rugby partners have arrived in the province for a two-day stopover.

The Chiefs squad arrived and set up camp at the Clifton Rugby Club grounds at Tikorangi.

They will train at the ground this morning and again at the Gully at New Plymouth Boys' High School tomorrow. Both sessions are open to the public.

"We're happy to have Taranaki with us in the Chiefs' franchise," assistant manager Don Shergold said yesterday.

"It's a team building trip for the players."

Shergold said the public we're welcome to attend the training sessions - from 8.45am to 11.15am and an afternoon session from 1.45pm to 3pm. Tomorrow's session is from 11am to 12.30pm at Boys' High.

"After training on Friday, the players will head into town for lunch and to wander around and meet people," he said.

"We want to let Taranaki know we're here and that we will be back for two games later in the year."

The Chiefs head back to Hamilton late tomorrow afternoon.
