Blues captain Keven Mealamu praised the Chiefs performance after they beat the Blues 29-14 in Hamilton but was not happy at all with his own team's performance.
The Blues were up against it almost from the kick off as the Chiefs played with pace and power and Arizona Taumalolo went over for the first try of the match in the fourth minute.
The Chiefs went on to score first half tries throuh Asaeli Tikoirotuma, Tawera Kerr Barlow and Tim Nanai-Williams which earned them the bonus point before half time.
"The Chiefs - full credit to them - played bloody well today," a visibly angry Blues captain Keven Mealamu said.
"We didn't take advantage of the conditions and played poorly in the first half.
"We can't afford to play like that, especially against a side like this."
"We're going to have to go back and have a look at our game, have a look at ourselves as individuals because at this level that sort of performance is not bloody good enough."
Chiefs captain Craig Clarke was pleased with his team's performance in the match and said that the team worked well together.
"It was one of those halves of footy when things just seemed to go right," Chiefs captain Craig Clarke said.
"Things stuck and it was pretty expansive for a wet weather game so we're chuffed.
"It's a bit greasy, but it's a credit to our handling skills that some of the expansive play paid off."
