Refreshed Chiefs can get off to a fast start
Waikato men aiming for fifth straight win
Blues v Force
Sky Sports 2, 5.15am Saturday
The Blues have romped to wide-margin wins over both of their non-Kiwi opponents this season and they can make it a treble by giving up 18 points to the Force at Eden Park.
Last Saturday, Tana Umaga's men beat the Bulls 38-14 across Auckland in North Harbour and they opened up their campaign with a 56-18 mauling of the Rebels in Melbourne.
The Force were hammered 45-17 by the Crusaders in Christchurch last week and have lost their last seven games in New Zealand.

The Chiefs are worth a wager to give up nine points to the Bulls in the first half of their clash in Hamilton.
Refreshed after a bye week, the Chiefs run out at Waikato Stadium hoping to make it five wins out of five and they have held double-figure interval leads in both of their home outings against the Blues and champion Hurricanes.
Last Saturday, the Bulls endured a second-half try blitz from the Blues but in their first two road games of the season, at the Stormers and Cheetahs, they suffered in the first half.
