Super Rugby’s regular season is over, but which teams will face off in the quarter-finals?

The Lions beat the Sharks on Saturday to top the overall standings and book a quarter-final against the same opposition next week in Johannesburg. It guarantees at least one South African side in the semi-finals, though there could be another if the Stormers beat the Chiefs in Cape Town.

The Stormers have never won the competition before, whereas the Chiefs were back-to-back champions in 2012 and 2013.

The Crusaders, Super Rugby’s most successful side, finished second in the standings after suffering their first defeat of the season to the Hurricanes in the final round. They will welcome the 2015 champions the Highlanders in Christchurch in the first round of the knock-outs.

The last remaining quarter-final sees the Brumbies host the defending champions the Hurricanes in Canberra.
