I think the issue for me is we have shown we can score lots of tries against them in the past, but we have to click. The unfavourable record we have in the last three seasons is partly explained by our often weakened selections when we play them, especially away, but their game plan can be kryptonite to ours. After a few games we start to click, but early in the season a "moving parts" game is harder to get going than the Chiefs' more simple grinding, possession based gameplan. In many ways Chiefs remind me of Saints circa 2012, very strong basics and set piece, plenty of possession and always turning us over whilst we played all the attractive stuff. Saints tended to get beaten by bigger Euro teams that could match them in the basics, I think Chiefs are going that way, none if which helps us.
