Super Rugby played out the regular season with Round 18, and with all matches now completed, Sanzar can confirm the following.

The South African Conference winning Stormers will finish top-of-the-table, and will host the lowest placed winner from the Super Rugby Qualifier (Week One), while the New Zealand Conference winning Chiefs will host the highest placed winner from the other Super Rugby Qualifier (as below).

The Reds claimed the Australian Conference in the last round thanks to a bonus point victory over the Waratahs, and Suncorp Stadium will host the Sharks.

The Crusaders win over the Force ensured they finished as the fourth placed overall team, and highest placed wildcard winner, thus ensuring home rights at AMI Stadium against the Bulls.
