Following the completion of the regular season in Super Rugby the top six teams have been determined and the four teams that will play in the qualifiers next weekend.

By finishing the season as the competition's two highest-ranked conference winners, the Chiefs (66 points, 12 wins) and the Bulls (63 points, 12 wins) have earned the week off and progress straight to the Super Rugby Semi Finals where they await the winners of the qualifying matches.

The Crusaders enter the Super Rugby Finals as the top-ranked 'Wildcard' team and secured a home final with a 25-17 win over the Hurricanes.

They welcome the Reds to Christchurch in a re-match of the 2011 Super Rugby Final.

The Reds only needed one point on Saturday to overtake the Cheetahs and move into fifth spot and they beat the Waratahs 14-12.

The Brumbies claimed the Australian Conference but with 60 points and 10 wins, they finish as the third-ranked conference winner and are subsequently thrust into a showdown with the sixth-ranked Cheetahs who had a bye in the final round of the regular season.

Super Rugby Qualifier A
Date :
Saturday, 20 July, 2013
Match : Crusaders v Reds
Venue : AMI Stadium, Christchurch, New Zealand
Kick-off : (1935 local, 1735 NSW/ACT, 0935 SAT, 0735 GMT)

Super Rugby Qualifier B
Date :
Sunday, 21 July, 2013
Match : Brumbies v Cheetahs
Venue : Canberra Stadium, Canberra, Australia
Kick-off : (1610 local, 1810 NZT, 0810 SAT, 0610 GMT)

The Chiefs and Bulls have a bye next week but return for the Semi-finals.

The Chiefs will host the first Semi-final and they will play the lowest ranked qualifier between the Brumbies, Crusaders, Cheetahs or Reds.

The Bulls will host the second Semi-final and they will play the highest ranked qualifier between the Brumbies, Crusaders, Cheetahs or Reds.

If the Chiefs beat the lowest ranked qualifier in their Semi-final then they will host the Super Rugby final in Hamilton.

If the Chiefs lose their Super Rugby Semi-final and the Bulls beat the highest ranked qualifier then the Bulls will host the Super Rugby final in Pretoria.

In the unlikely event that the Chiefs and the Bulls lose their Semi-finals then the highest ranked qualifier will host the final and they will play the second highest ranked qualifier.
