Super Rugby Semi final matches decided!

Following the completion of the Super Rugby qualifiers the Semi-finalists for the the Super Rugby Semi-finals have been decided.RW Stamp

The Brumbies beat the Chiefs 32-30 in Canberra while the Sharks beat the Highlanders 31-27 in Durban so the Chiefs and the Highlanders have been eliminated.

The six qualifying teams finished the regular season as follows.

1. Waratahs
2. Crusaders
3. Sharks
4. Brumbies
5. Chiefs
6. Highlanders

The Waratahs and the Crusaders finished in first and second place which earned them a bye this week and a home Semi-final next week.

The Waratahs will play the lowest ranked qualifier and the Crusaders play the highest ranked qualifier.

As the Chiefs and the Highlanders have been eliminated the Sharks are the highest qualifier and will face the Crusaders in Christchurch.

The Super Rugby Semifinals are therefore as follows.

Semi-final A
Date :
Saturday 26th of July
Match : Crusaders vs Sharks in Christchurch (AMI Stadium)
Kick off : 1935 local

Semi-final B
Date :
Saturday 26th of July
Match : Waratahs vs Brumbies in Sydney (SFS)
Kick off : 19.30 local

Should any Super Rugby Finals Series match end with the scores level, the following will apply until a winner is determined:

a) Extra time played in two periods of 10 minutes
b) Sudden death extra time in a period of up to 10 minutes
c) A kicking competition featuring five players from each team
