Bookies can't see past all-NZ semis
Cape Town - New Zealand's four sides will dominate this weekend's Super Rugby quarter-finals, say bookmakers.
The Hurricanes have been installed as 5/2 favourites for their first ever title, while last year's champions, the Highlanders, are next best at 21/5.
The Chiefs, aiming for their third title in five years, are on offer at 9/2.
The seven-time champion Crusaders and Lions are joint-fourth favourites at 5/1.
The Brumbies (11/1), Stormers (14/1) and Sharks (40/1) are considered outsiders.
Australian Conference winners, the Brumbies, host the Highlanders in Friday's first quarter-final in Canberra (10:00 SA time).
The table-topping Hurricanes host the eight-placed Sharks in Saturday's first quarter in Wellington (09:35), before the Lions welcome the Crusaders to Ellis Park (16:30) and the Stormers and Chiefs do battle at Newlands (19:00).
