Chiefs boss Dave Rennie was left ruing the one “that got away” after Brumbies flyer Henry Speight’s showing in Saturday’s play-off in Canberra.
Although he did not manage to score one of the Brumbies’ four tries, Speight proved a real handful in his side’s 32-30 victory.
He kept the Chiefs defenders on their toes, gaining 186 metres, 13 tackle busts, two linebreaks, three offloads and 13 runs.
