Super Rugby team by team preview round 2

Super Rugby Quick Links : Home | News | Fixtures | Super Rugby Betting | Standings |

The weekend is the second round of Super rugby in 2020 and after the opening round the Jaguares, Crusaders and Sunwolves lead the overall standings.

The Jaguares contested the final last so they are no strangers to the top of the table and the reigning champion Crusaders spend most seasons in the top three. The real newcomer at the top is the Sunwolves who are playing in their final year of Super rugby. They are also unlikely to hold their position as they have the bye this weekend.

The round opens in Dunedin where the Highlanders will play their first match of the 2020 Super rugby season as they had the bye last weekend. The Sharks were at home last week so while they have had a warm up match they have had to travel for this one.n
