Update: Here's how to watch the Brumbies vs Reds Super Rugby AU final online

The Super Rugby competition as we once knew it won't be seen in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic meant the original, traditional tournament ended after round seven and those matches no longer count. Two new competitions have been organised as replacements.

Firstly, New Zealand launched Super Rugby Aotearoa in mid-June, which involves just the five Kiwi teams. Now Super Rugby AU is next, to be made up of the four Australian Super Rugby franchises plus the Western Force. It gets underway on 3 July.

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 for 2020. It is hoped that will return in 2021.

In the new format, the five Australian teams will play each other twice. The top four teams will then qualify for a finals series, with the grand final slated for 19 September.
