Super rugby round 13 means that we now have just six rounds of Super rugby remaining before the knock out rounds which start in the second half of June.

The Crusaders look to be all but confirmed participants of the play offs but behind them it is wide open and anything could happen due to the closeness of the middle of the table.

The Sunwolves are the last placed team. Above them are the Chiefs (14th), Blues (13th) and Waratahs (12th) but they are just one win away from the middle of the table. It is still all to play for.

In our current form rankings which is based upon the last five matches, points scored, matches won and points conceded the Hurricanes have taken the top spot from the Crusaders who drew against the Sharks at home last week.

The Jaguares are second as they have won their last four matches while in Australia the Reds have moved up to third after three straight wins.
