The teams for the 2013 Super Rugby Semifinals have now been confirmed following the conclusion of the qualifying finals.

The Crusaders knocked the Reds out in the first qualifying final and the Brumbies knocked the Cheetahs out in the second qualifying final.

Both of the qualifying final winners had home advantage but will now have to travel away from home. The Brumbies have the biggest travel ahead as they must fly across the Indian Ocean to South Africa from Australia.

The Crusaders have a much shorter trip to Hamilton where they have lost on their last two visits. The Brumbies have lost on their last three visits to Pretoria.

The 2013 Super Rugby final now cannot be an all New Zealand final and will be between one New Zealand team and either a South African or Australian team.

If the Bulls and Chiefs win their Semi-finals the 2013 Super Rugby Final will be in Hamilton.

If the Crusaders beat the Chiefs and the Bulls beat the Brumbies the final will be in Pretoria as the Bulls finished in second place at the end of the regular Super Rugby season.

If the Brumbies beat the Bulls and the Crusaders beat the Chiefs the final will be in Canberra.

The only city that cannot host the 2013 Super Rugby final is Christchurch as the Crusaders are the lowest ranked finalist.
