How it works


After 17 rounds and 135 matches of the regular season the quarterfinalists for the 2016 Super Rugby tournament have been determined. The four Conference winners will host the four wildcard teams in the quarterfinals.

The Hurricanes won the hotly contested battle of the New Zealand Conference to finish as Conference winner and top tournament seed to secure its home quarterfinal. The Hurricanes beat the Crusaders in Christchurch, while the Highlanders beat the Chiefs 25-15 in Dunedin.

The Lions 34-22 loss in Buenos Aires to the Jaguares saw them finish top of South Africa Conference 2 to qualify as tournament second seed.

The Stormers finished as South Africa 1 Conference winners after beating the Kings 52-24 in Cape Town and enter the quarterfinals as third seed. The Australian Conference winner is the Brumbies who beat the Force in Canberra 24-10 to qualify as fourth seed. Meaning the Waratahs missed out on quarterfinal qualification.

The wild card quarterfinalists are three teams from the Australasia Group: the Highlanders, Chiefs, Crusaders; and the Sharks from South Africa 2 who beat to the Sunwolves 40-29 to claim the one wild card spot from the South Africa Group.
