Matt Duffie scored a brace of tries as the Blues secured a comfortable 26-14 win over the Chiefs in a Super Rugby warm-up game on Friday.

At a rain-drenched Alexandra Park in Auckland, the match turned into a relatively low-scoring affair, with the result effectively sealed in the first half when Duffie scored twice, while Ihaia West completed a stunning solo try.

Gerard Cowley-Tuioti also dotted down for the Blues as they took a 26-7 lead into the break, with the Chiefs’ single response coming from a try by Brodie Retallick.

The only score in the second half saw Latu Vaeno dot down for the Chiefs, but a late comeback was never on the cards.

Blues – Tries: Matt Duffie (2), Ihaia West, Gerard Cowley-Tuioti. Conversions: West (3).
Chiefs – Tries: Brodie Retallick, Latu Vaeno. Conversions: Aaron Cruden, Luteru Laulala.
