The Super Rugby competition as we once knew it went through major changes in 2020 and they are continuing into 2021. The coronavirus pandemic meant the original, traditional tournament ended after round seven last year. Two new competitions were organised as replacements, Super Rugby AU and Super Rugby Aotearoa in New Zealand.
How does Super Rugby work?
The old competition of three pools of five teams in an Australian Conference, New Zealand Conference and South African Conference is officially gone as of last season. It is hoped that will return at some stage but it won't be in 2021.
In the new AU format, the five Australian teams will battle out for the title. There will be a qualifying final on 1 May ahead of the 8 May final.
There are also five teams in the Kiwi version - Chiefs, Hurricanes, Highlanders, Blues and Crusaders. The Super Rugby Aotearoa competition also has a final slated for 8 May.
