    2018-07-15 06:00

    Cape Town - The quarter-finalists for the 2018 edition of Super Rugby have been confirmed following the completion of the round robin stages.

    The good news from a South African perspective is that there are TWO franchises in the playoffs. 

    WRAP: Super Rugby - Week 19

    The Lions beat the Bulls on Saturday to secure second spot on the overall log, which means that they will host a semi-final if they beat the Jaguares in their quarter-final at Ellis Park on Saturday. 

    The other positive from a local point of view comes in the form of the Sharks, who beat the Jaguares in Durban on Saturday to sneak into the tournament playoffs at the expense of the Rebels. 

    They have the toughest of assignments in the quarter-finals, though, with a trip to Christchurch to take on the Crusaders their reward.
