With the 2017 Super Rugby regular season now concluded and the composition of the play off confirmed, we take a look at the latest outright betting.
The play offs will be contested between 4 New Zealand sides joined by 3 from South Africa and 1 from Australia. The 8 teams to remain in the hunt have been assured of their play off places for some time but the final round of the regular season gave us a late twist with the Crusaders losing their 100% record and the Lions overhauling them for top spot overall and home advantage for as long as they remain a factor in the knockout rounds.
