Super Rugby Standings

In South Africa, the Super Rugby standings are often called the Super Rugby log, in Australia they are often referred to as the Super Rugby ladder.

Please note that a bonus point is awarded to a team for scoring three tries more than the opponent. The four-try bonus point rule has fallen away and no longer applies.

In addition, points differential is secondary to the number of wins.
