There are just three Super rugby matches remaining and after 124 matches we are down to four teams – the Crusaders, Hurricanes, Jaguares and Brumbies.

It is worth noting that all four of the away teams in last week’s quarter-finals lost their matches which demonstrates how important home advantage is.

Although the Crusaders finished first at the end of the Super rugby season they will play second this weekend as the Jaguares have scheduled their match on Friday.

The Jaguares host the Brumbies in Semi-final 2 and in Semi-final 1 on Saturday the Crusaders host the Hurricanes.
