Chiefs halfback Brad Weber says their recent losses has been "one of those things".

The team has currently lost three games in a row, including a 50 point loss to the Brumbies and handing the Sunwolves their first ever away win. 

NZ Herald sports writer Patrick McKendry wrote yesterday that it was a stunningly poor game, and they could be set for more difficulty. 

"Given the Chiefs' draw over the next four weeks – four difficult away matches, including a trip to South Africa and Argentina - the question is, can the Blues avoid the New Zealand conference wooden spoon this year? Will it be the Chiefs who take that dubious honour? In what is looming as a crucial game in the context of the booby prize, the two teams play each other on April 13."

Weber told the Radio Sports Breakfast that there are no easy games in the Super Rugby competition, and he remains optimistic for their chances. 

He says that they aren't focused on injuries and exiting players and how that will affect them. 

"It's nothing we read into, personally."

Weber says that they are confident of their chances against the likes of the Crusaders.

"To be fair, in my time here at the Chiefs, we've had a good run with the Crusaders. It's not hard to find motivation to get up and play against them."
