The Hurricanes and Chiefs get us started on this final weekend of round robin Super Rugby, with the Hurricanes still in with a shout of reaching the playoffs, and the Chiefs in the position to do them a favour, seeing as they have already qualified.

The Chiefs though, are still not secured of a home final, should they get that far, and will have to pick up some points in this match to ensure they stay clear of second placed Stormers.

The Hurricanes need to pick up a full five points and hope that either of the Sharks or Bulls do not pick up the full house, so that they sneak into that final play-off spot.

    But this is good, because this result doesn’t force us to get a bonus point tomorrow. Just a win will do.

  • Phew thank you Dane Coles!!!

    Outside of maybe the Brumbies vs Blues game, they should all help determine the final log position.

    I can only hope for something like this:
    1 Stormers
    2 Chiefs
    3 Brumbies (conference system knocks them up)
    4 Crusaders
    5 Bulls
    6 Sharks

    Followed by: Stormers versus Bulls & Chiefs versus Sharks.

  • @hendrikp (Comment 42) :

    It’d be nice if somehow the Force managed to beat the Crusaders… not going to happen though.

    In that case we could get a Sharks vs Bulls quarter-final next weekend.

  • @hendrikp (Comment 42) : I don’t know why you guys are content with this result. The Sharks will now have to go to Aus, then SA, then NZ (most likely) whereas if the Chiefs won, it would have been Aus, NZ, and then facing Saders in Christchurch after they just travelled to SA.

  • Woohoo!
    Thank you Hurricanes. Not only do we now get a home final, but we miss the Crusaders in the semis. In fact, from the look of it, we’re on a collision course with the Sharks, you guys should have little problem knocking over the Brumbies. As for the Canes, give those men a Bells!

  • If the log ends :
    Stormers
    Chiefs
    Brumbies
    Crusaders
    Bulls
    Sharks

    The Sharks will play Brumbies in the Playoff, the Chiefs in the semi and the Stormers in the final, is it not?

  • As I understand it, 3 plays 6 in Q1 and 4 plays 5 in Q2. Then the semis will be 1 vs Q2, because the 4th ranked team on the log plays in that Qualifier, and then 2 plays Q1, as the 3rd ranked team plays in that one. Or is that wrong?

  • @Argex (Comment 53) : No. Your second step is wrong. The semi’s are still determined by final log position. So 1 would play 6 regardless of whether 6 beat 3 in the playoffs.

    Stormers
    Chiefs
    Brumbies
    Saders
    Bulls
    Sharks

    What we would want to happen is for the Bulls to barge through the Saders and Chiefs, resulting in a Loftus final, meaning 2 weeks in SA for us while the Bulls will have to fly back from NZ after two hard matches.
    Not likely, I know, but that would be ideal
