Super Rugby is a professional club rugby competition organized by SANZAAR involving teams from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. The tournament is called Super Rugby Pacific, after the recent withdrawal of several South African franchises. The franchises, including many from Japan and South Africa (all bets on the Currie Cup), have decided to withdraw, while Argentina's license has not been renewed.
The Pacific Super Rugby is an exciting competition featuring the biggest franchises in the Southern Hemisphere. Make bets on the Rugby Union on our online sports betting platform.
Betting on Super Rugby
The two federations, NZR and RA, have agreed that the 12 franchises will play each other once, with three more matches in the season-end tournament to be awarded at random, making up a total of 14 matches.
The structure of the playoffs will be on a single-elimination format with the top eight teams at the end of the regular season. The opening quarterfinal match pits the top-ranked team against the eighth-ranked team, the second against the seventh, third against the sixth and the fourth against the fifth.
Some of the matches are close to international rugby standards. Make bets on international rugby with bwin.
Betting on a Super Rugby match
Betting on individual Super Rugby matches "down under" means European bettors have to be switched on in the early morning hours for a Super Rugby day that runs from Friday to Sunday.
A recommended bet on a Super Rugby match is to bet one of the New Zealand teams. The competition is dominated by them, and they have won 17 times in 24 years. The Crusaders have won most often, with ten titles. They hold many records in the competition, such as the most points scored in a game with their famous 96-19 punishment of the Waratahs.
Recommended betting on Super Rugby
Basically, there are rarely any rugby matches that end in a tie due to the high number of points being scored.
In the event of a draw at the end of normal time, the match is decided by what is referred to as a "golden point." If no one scores in an additional 10 minutes, both teams keep the competition points earned in regulation time. A recommended bet in Super Rugby is to bet on the winner.
