    Cape Town - Bookmakers have installed the Hurricanes as marginal favourites for this year's Super Rugby title.

    Leading SA bookies Sportingbet have the 'Canes on offer at 6/4, ahead of the Chiefs at 3/1.

    The Lions can be backed at 16/5 while the Highlanders are on offer at 100/30.

    The Hurricanes and Chiefs will do battle in the first semi-final in Wellington on Saturday (09:35 SA time), after which the Lions host the Highlanders at Ellis Park (15:00).
