These are the full Super Rugby ladders for both Super Rugby AU and Super Rugby Aotearoa in 2021.
In Super Rugby AU, the top three teams qualify for the finals. The first-place team goes directly to the grand final, with second playing third for the opportunity to face them. In 2020, the Reds defeated the Rebels to reach the decider, where the Brumbies triumphed to claim the title.
Super Rugby Aotearoa only has a two-team finals system, with those teams playing a one-off grand final. The team that finishes first at the end of the home-and-away season is crowned champions. This year, it was the Crusaders.
In the event of two or more teams being equal on competition points for any position on either the Conference or Super Rugby Standings tables, either during or at the end of the season, such position will be decided upon using the following steps until the tie is broken:
(a) Most wins from all matches;
(b) Highest aggregate points difference from all matches;
(c) Most tries from all matches;
(d) Highest aggregate difference of total tries for versus tries scored against from all matches;
(e) Coin toss.
