This is how I think the teams will finish at the end of the regular Super Rugby season.

The Crusaders will struggle at first as they have to play the Stormers and Sharks in South Africa early in the season, but they have two home games in a row at the back end of the season so should scrape in as a wildcard.

The Highlanders might be hampered by playing two away games at the end of the season, although one of them is against the Rebels in Melbourne. I think the Rebels though could be playoff contenders this season as they have quite a few Wallabies in their side now, including Scott Higginbotham, who has moved from the Reds.

My tip:

1. Stormers

2. Chiefs

3. Crusaders

4. Highlanders

5. Sharks

6. Brumbies

7. Reds

8. Bulls

9. Hurricanes

10. Rebels

11. Blues

12. Waratahs

13. Cheetahs

14. Force

15. Kings

Stormers to beat the Chiefs in Cape Town to win their first ever title on their third attempt.
