SUPER RUGBY NZ AOTEAROA Champion could be decided this weekend on Fox Sports

It will be an action-packed weekend of Super Rugby from both sides of the Tasman with every game of the Super Rugby AU and Super Rugby NZ Aotearoa LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on FOX SPORTS.

With just two rounds of Super Rugby NZ Aotearoa action remaining, a title winner could be decided as early as Sunday. Kicking off Round 9, the Hurricanes go up against the Chiefs on Saturday, August 8 with LIVE coverage from 5.05pm AEST on FOX SPORTS 505.

Then on Sunday, August 9, one win against the Highlanders stands between the Crusaders winning the competition with LIVE coverage from 1.35pm AEST on FOX SPORTS 505.

Title chances of the Crusaders, Blues and Hurricanes:

  • Crusaders Currently 1st on 24 points

Need one win from their two remaining games to win the title

  • Blues Currently 2nd on 22 points

Need to beat the Crusaders in their final game (and) hope Crusaders lose to the Highlanders

There is also a chance both teams could end of 26 points, but Blues would have won more games so they would have the tiebreaker

  • Hurricanes Currently 3rd on 16 points

Need to win their remaining two games, both with a bonus point (and) hope Crusaders lose their final two games (and) the Blues win their final game without a bonus point

On home soil, the Super Rugby AU is officially halfway through the season in its sixth round of competition. Action kicks off with the Rebels hosting the Brumbies LIVE from 7.05pm AEST on Friday, August 7 before a NSW v QLD rivalry when the Waratahs go head-to-head against the Reds on Saturday, August 8 from 7.15pm AEST with both games broadcast on FOX SPORTS 505.
