As Super rugby reaches the eleventh round the Crusaders are virtually operating away from the remainder of the sector and their nearest rival is seven points behind.

The Rebels at the moment are four factors forward of the Waratahs in the Australian Conference but in South Africa issues are lots tighter.

The Bulls have a one level lead over the Lions and Sharks whereas the lowest positioned South African Conference team are the Stormers who are simply four factors behind the Bulls. As luck would have it the Bulls play the Stormers this weekend and the Cape City aspect have not lost to the Pretoria aspect at house for eight years.

Whereas the Crusaders and Rebels are taking control of their conferences something might happen within the South African conference when it comes to the play offs.
