SEMIFINAL WRAP: The Chiefs will meet the Crusaders in the Final of the inaugural Brisbane 10s.

The Chiefs booked their place in the first ever Brisbane 10s Final with a commanding 26-14 victory over a spirited Bulls side.

It was sweet revenge for the Chiefs, after the Bulls recorded an impressive 28-7 win over the Chiefs in a pre-season match in Brisbane this past Thursday.

In the other semifinal, the Crusaders overpowered the Hurricanes 17-7, taking a 7-0 lead into the half-time break before a converted try and a penalty sealed the win. However, there was something worth celebrating for the Hurricanes, as young Jordie Barrett made an impressive run to cross for his team's only try midway through the second half.

We look at the semifinals!

Chiefs 26-14 Bulls

The Chiefs have booked their place in the first ever Brisbane Global Tens Final with a commanding 26-14 victory over a spirited Bulls side.

The Chiefs struck first through try-scoring machine, Shaun Stevenson and surged further ahead when they were awarded a penalty try.

Solomon Alaimalo was deemed to have been tackled without the ball when chasing a kick which looked like it was going to be a certain try.

Alaimalo crossed for his own for five-pointer minutes later to give the chiefs a 21-0 lead at half-time.

Andre Riaan Warner struck first for the Bulls after the break, threatening a comeback that has become familiar from the South African side throughout the weekend.

It was short-lived, however, as Alaimalo bagged a double to put the result beyond doubt.

It's the end of the road for the Bulls who've played with a lot of flair and spirit on Day Two.

The scorers:

For the Chiefs:
Tries:
Alaimalo 2, Stevenson, Penalty try
Cons: Nanai-Williams 2, Stevenson

For the Bulls:
Tries:
Warner 2
Cons: Gelant 2

Crusaders 17-7 Hurricanes
The Crusaders will meet the Chiefs in the Final after defeating the Hurricanes 17-7 in the second semifinal.

The Crusaders started in the same fashion they've played all weekend, with dominance. Despite their clear difference in class, they were unable to find points in the opening five minutes.

They finally opened the scoring just before half-time when Quinten Strange played the support role to collect a pop pass at the line and dive over.

Bryn Hall furthered the advantage in the second half and it looked like the Crusaders were going to go through comfortably.

But Jordie Barrett had other ideas.

Coming on as a replacement midway through the second half, Barrett collected the ball in midfield and put through a deft kick, showing the Barrett pace we've come to expect from his All Black brother, Beauden, to beat everyone to the ball and score under the posts.

The crowd were on their feet for what was a tense finish but a penalty 22 metres out from the Hurricanes line gifted the Crusaders an easy shot at goal, and with the three point kick they kept their undefeated streak alive.

Scorers:

For the Crusaders:
Tries:
Strange, Hall
Cons: McKenzie, Hunt
Pen: Hunt

For the Hurricanes:
Try:
Barrett
Con: Barrett
