Super Rugby is a rugby union competition, consisting of 12 teams from Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. As of 2021 the competition has been restructured, with the Sunwolves from Japan and Jaguares from Argentina both leaving and the four teams from South Africa moving to the United Rugby Championship.
The 12 teams play 14 regular season games, facing each other once in a home-and-away format with the remaining 3 matches to be played as ‘derby’ matches between February and May. The top eight teams at the conclusion of the regular season will qualifyfor the play-offs.
The most recent winners are the 2019 champions Crusaders, who won their 10th title and are the most successful franchise in the tournament’s history. The competition has been dominated by teams from New Zealand, winning 17 times in 24 years.
