Ultimately, the four best teams in 2016 have won through to the Super Rugby semis, after a weekend of quarters that delivered surprising result after surprising result.
There’s no mucking around. It’s Quarter Finals time, and we’re straight into it. Here’s the talking points for the first week of the playoffs.
Digger, Digger, Digger, you bloody little ANZAC! Tasked with catching The Crowd in the final round of the season, Digger pulled another perfect round from his sleeve and didn’t just catch The Crowd, he beat them outright!
For all the debate and argument about Super Rugby’s conference format, and how that affects the finals series, what we’re left with is the eight best teams however you’d like to measure it.
The Super Rugby season is right down to the wire, and even if there are debates around the finals format, the playoffs loom with much excitement.
We’re leaving the Super Rugby season together, but still it’s farewell. And maybe this week we’ll come back to earth, who can tell?
