Wildcard teams, qualified to finals. Eight teams will qualify to the finals , with their final positions in the overall log determining their seedings in the Quarter Finals. The conference winners will be seeded 1 to 3 for the Quarter Finals, in order of log points gained during the group stages, while the wildcards will be seeded as 4 to 8 in order of log points gained during the group stages.

In the Quarter Finals, the three conference winners and the highest-ranked wildcard team will host the first round of the finals, with the highest-seeded conference winner Team 1 hosting the fifth-seeded wildcard entry Team 8 in Quarter Final 1, the second-seeded conference winner Team 2 hosting the fourth-seeded wildcard entry Team 7 in Quarter Final 3, the third-seeded conference winner Team 3 hosting the third-seeded wildcard entry Team 6 in Quarter Final 4 and the top-seeded wildcard entry Team 4 hosting the second-seed wildcard entry Team 5 in Quarter Final 2.

The Quarter Final winners will progress to the Semi-Finals, where the winners of Quarter Finals 1 and 2 will play each other, as well as the winners of Quarter Finals 3 and 4, each tie hosted by the higher-seeded team. The winner of the Semi-Finals will progress to the Final, again to be held at the venue of the highest-seeded team. Teams standings are calculated as follows: Westpac Stadium , Wellington.

Stormers yet to win away this season, Sunwolves have had a couple of tight scoreline-wise at least games at home. Not sure its quite the emphatic no in your write up? I think you are out with the Sharks game. The Chiefs are missing 20 players in their squad for this game with injuries and compulsory AB leave.

The Bulls game might also surprise us this time but all the rest are spot on. Bulls without a number of key players, might just suffer the same fate as the Lions. The Sunwolwes represent Japan and the inclusion of many international players might make it a close game.

I am not convinced that Chiefs will beat Sharks and will await team selections before making my final pick. I agree with the above 2 lads, Sharks to beat the Chiefs. Sharks by circa 20 points. All the other picks are similar to mine. The Sharks game you have got it all wrong for sure. Chiefs will be without all their All Blacks for this game. Even if their All Blacks were available, Sharks would still win.

Sharks will win in Durban this weekend for sure. Hurricanes by 25 Stormers by 10 — could be closer with SW having home advantage Crusaders by 12 — not entirely convinced by the Crusaders this year so far but the Blues are poor. Waratahs by 4 — could be an upset in this one.
