Super Rugby's quarter-finals confirmed


Super Rugby's quarter-final line-up is confirmed

After 18 rounds and 120 matches of the regular season, the quarter-finalists for the 2019 Super Rugby tournament have been confirmed by SANZAAR.

After a very competitive season, the configuration of the quarter-finals was only determined after the very last match of the season when the Bulls beat the Lions to earn a bonus point win in Pretoria.

The Crusaders finished the regular season as New Zealand Conference winners for the third year in a row – and the highest ranked team in the tournament – finishing on 58 points after 11 wins.

The Jaguares won the South African Conference for the first time finishing with 11 wins and 51 points. In the Australian Conference, the Brumbies finished top with 10 wins and 48 points.

The last quarter-final host spot is taken by the Hurricanes who finished second in New Zealand Conference with 53 points.

The four next best wildcard teams – based on total tournament points and regardless of conference – have been ranked five to eight: Bulls 41 points (South African Conference), Sharks 37 points (South African Conference), Chiefs 36 points (New Zealand Conference) and Highlanders 36 points (New Zealand Conference).

The quarter-finalists and their rankings are:

1. Crusaders – New Zealand Conference Winners
2. Jaguares – South African Conference Winners
3. Brumbies – Australian Conference Winners
4. Hurricanes
5. Bulls
6. Sharks
7. Chiefs
8. Highlanders
