Super XV Rugby Tournament Kicks Off

February 2018 - The 2018 Super Rugby tournament kicks off this weekend (17 February 2018), and unlike the past 2 seasons, which had 18 teams, the 2018 season will be challenged by 15 teams.

2018 Super Rugby
  • • The Western Force, Southern Kings and the Cheetahs have been removed and instead of the four confusing conferences, there are three.
  • • The Sunwolves have joined the Australian Super Rugby Conference and the Jaguares have joined the South African Conference.
  • • Each of the 15 Super Rugby teams will play 16 matches in their regular season.
  • • These 16 matches will include eight matches against teams in their own conference (home and away), and four matches against teams from each of the other Conferences (home or away).

Schedules:

Super Rugby is the only tournament in the world that is played across as many different time zones. This makes listing the kick off times extremely difficult.

Plus, Australia and New Zealand participate in Daylight Savings while South Africa does not.

Queensland in Australia also has different Daylight Savings schedules to New South Wales, and Perth is in a different time zone to Sydney.

Due to this, there is much confusion on accurate kick off times.

*Times, dates and venues subject to change - please check with your local broadcaster.
