Super Rugby in 2021 will comprise three competitions in Australia and New Zealand: first the separate Super Rugby AU and Super Rugby Aotearoa, before Super Rugby Trans-Tasman. Here are the full fixture and draws for both tournaments.

Super Rugby AU will kick off on February 19 and run through to early May. While Super Rugby Aotearoa will start a week later, the New Zealand competition has just one week of finals rather than the two used in Australia, so both will have ten rounds of the regular season and the finals on Saturday, May 8.

With five teams in each tournament, one side will have a bye each round.

Super Rugby Trans-Tasman will begin the week after the conclusion of the two domestic competitions, and run for six weeks: five rounds where each Australian side plays each New Zealand franchise and vice-versa, before the final between the top two teams on June 19.

All Super Rugby games in 2021 can be streamed in Australia via Stan Sport, while the season opener, both finals and all Saturday night games in the Australian competition will be shown live and free on Channel Nine.

Super Rugby Trans-Tasman will have a similar broadcast arrangement as the AU competition: every match on Stan, and one fixture per week shown on free-to-air TV on the Nine Network.

Please note that all times below are in Sydney/Melbourne time, and that “Broadcast” refers to the Australian broadcaster.
