Super Rugby AU TV Preview
The second season of Super Rugby AU is set to be explosive with the Brumbies aiming for back-to-back titles. But they are expected to be pushed all the way again by last year’s runners-up, the Queensland Reds.
The field is set to be a lot closer overall this year, thanks in large part to plenty of additions at Western Force and Melbourne Rebels. Tevita Kuridrani will step out in Force colours this season. He will play alongside the likes of Domingo Miotti and Tomas Lezana, two additions from the Jaguares, and former Ireland international Rob Kearney.
The Rebels have added their own Argentinian contingent in Lucio Sordoni and Ignacio Calas who are sure to strengthen depth. They can now also turn to new English signing George Worth at full-back to add cover for Dane Haylett-Petty.
Super Rugby AU fixtures take place across 10 rounds from February through to May, each team playing both home and away games. The team finishing top of the table goes straight through to the final, with the second and third place sides entering a playoff.
