Most have found it difficult to break through the Chiefs this season but the Hurricanes feel they have the tools to crack their stingy defensive line.
The Chiefs have conceded just 148 points in their eight matches to date, second only to the Stormers.
Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett says they're not daunted by the record.
"Against the best defence we can still open teams up and score tries. Probably not just the Chiefs, but all New Zealand teams, you've got to work hard for your tries, sometimes that might mean negative metres before you make positive metres."
The Chiefs are wary of a bounce back performance from the Hurricanes, after they were thrashed 42-14 by the Crusaders last week.
Chiefs co-captain Craig Clarke believes they are a dangerous side.
"The way they're able to use turnover ball, you give them opportunities and some space - they'll kill you. I guess you do add to the fact they'll be pretty fired up after that game."
Kick-off at Waikato Stadium is at 7.35.
