Super Rugby AU and Aotearoa draw and fixtures 2020

After the 2020 Super Rugby draw cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian-only and New Zealand-only competitions ran as a replacement.

New Zealand’s Super Rugby Aotearoa ran for ten weeks from June 13, and featured all five Kiwi franchises: the Crusaders, Blues, Hurricanes, Chiefs and Highlanders. There were no finals, with the Crusaders taking out the title for being the top team at the end of the home-and-away season.

Rugby Australia also ran a domestic iteration of the competition – known as Super Rugby AU – which ran from July 3 and used the same home-and-away format, but featured a three-team finals series afterwards. The Brumbies were crowned champions.

Super Rugby AU features the four Australian Super Rugby franchises – the Waratahs, Reds, Brumbies and Rebels – as well as the Western Force.

The 2020 edition of Super Rugby proper was the final season to feature the Sunwolves and, with the Japanese franchise not included in Super Rugby AU, their time in the competition has come to an end.

All Super Rugby games in 2020 – including the replacement Australian and NZ competitions – could be streamed via Kayo Sports or watched on television through Fox Sports.
