2016 Super Rugby Results

Super Rugby is the southern hemisphere's leading rugby competition, featuring teams from New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Since 1996, teams from the three countries have been playing for the title. The competition started with 12 teams, increased to 14 teams and then increased again to 15 teams, with 5 teams from each nation.

The 2016 Super Rugby competition saw changes made with the addition of 3 new teams and format changes to allow for these teams. The new teams were the Southern Kings from South Africa, the Jaguares from Argentina and the Sunwolves from Japan.

There was be 2 regional groups, the South African and Australasian Groups.

The South African Group had 2 conferences, one with 3 South African teams and the Sunwolves (Japan) and one with 3 South African teams and the Jaguares (Argentina).

The Australasian Group had an Australian conference of 5 teams and a New Zealand conference of 5 teams.

In the South African conferences each team will play the other 3 teams on a home and away basis. They will also play each team in the other conference once and each team from one of the Australasian conferences.

In the Australasian conferences, each team will play two teams in their conference home and away. They will play the other 2 teams once, the teams in the other Australasian conference once and the teams in one of the South African conferences once.

The conference winners qualify for the Quarter Finals. The next 3 teams in the Australasian Group and the next best team in the South African Group also qualify. The conference winners will have home matches.

The highest rated winning teams will have home matches in the play-off series, including the final.

There was also a change made to the bonus point system for the Super Rugby season. The old system under which teams received a bonus point for scoring four or more tries has been abolished and teams will now only receive an attacking bonus point if they score three tries more than their opponents. There were also some minor amendments to the rules:

Maul laws
1. A player with the ball cannot move to the back of the maul, otherwise a penalty can be given.

Scrum laws

2. The ball can be cleared if available, when the scrum collapses.
3. If a player is lifted in the air, the scrum is ended immediately.
4. A team must be ready to crouch within 30 seconds of the referee setting the mark. Sanction: free kick
5. If a scrum wheels, it is reset and the ball is thrown in by the same team.
6. When a team has won the ball, the opposing halfback may not step into the space between the flanker and No.8.
