BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa (AP) -- Super Rugby champions the Chiefs stole a 43-43 draw at the Cheetahs with a try and conversion after the final hooter on Saturday, overturning a big deficit for a share of the spoils for the second straight game in South Africa.

Wing Tim Nanai-Williams nipped in under the crossbar for his second try in the 82nd minute to cap the Chiefs' fightback as the two-time defending champions came back from 34-10 down at halftime. Nanai-Williams, Asaeli Tikoirotuma and Augustine Pulu all scored two tries and the Chiefs roared back with five second-half tries.

The Cheetahs had a double by Sarel Pretorius and one try each from Rayno Benjamin and Boom Prinsloo but wilted in the second half as the Chiefs repeated the last-gasp draw they secured at the Bulls last weekend.
