NEWS: The Chiefs suffered a huge blow ahead of their trip to Cape Town after centre Seta Tamanivalu was ruled out his team's quarterfinal against the Stormers.

Tamanivalu is unavailable for the match after sustaining an MCL injury in their Round 17 clash against the Highlanders. He will be assessed on a week-by-week basis.
