Super Rugby Aotearoa round 10 is the final round of the tournament and sadly the matches are in doubt and may not go ahead due to new lockdown measures.

The tournament will not be left without a champion though as the Crusaders victory over the Highlanders last weekend earned them the title which takes a little pressure off this weekend’s matches.

If the matches go ahead the Highlanders host the Hurricanes and on Sunday the Blues will host the Crusaders.

The Chiefs have already completed their matches so they are not involved this weekend.
