    These two sides find themselves at opposite ends of the Africa 1 conference. It’s fair to say there’s a pretty big gap between the two.

    The Stormers will be in the finals this year – though they’re a little lucky, as they’re the one quality team inside a conference of a so-so performers.

    If the Super Rugby finals system was run solely on who has the best record, then they would be still battling for their spot against the Blues and the Brumbies.

    They’ve got a record of eight wins and five losses, but are only +9 in points scores across the whole of the season, and have only two bonus points for the year.

    It’s not the prettiest of pictures, but it’s a masterpiece compared to the Sunwolves, who in the second year of their history are just about the biggest battlers in the competition.

    They’re last in that Africa 1 conference with just one win this year and 12 losses, and their points differential is a whopping -346.

    The only team that could hope to match the Sunwolves for badness is the Rebels, who also have only one win, but a differential of -321.
