Super RugbySouth Africa will be kicking off the the 2014 Super Rugby season with 4 of their 5 teams playing in the first weekend.

The Toyota Cheetahs will be hosting MTN Lions on Saturday 15 February at 17:05 whilst The Sharks will host the Vodacom Bulls at 19:10. The Stormers find themselves with a bye in the first week.

The format of the competition remains the same as last year where teams play 16 matches with 2 byes.

The season will stretch from 2 February to 2 August with a total of 125 matches being played.

The South African teams start a week earlier than their New Zealand and Australian counterparts due to an extended June international schedule, much the same as the Australians did in 2013.

Each team plays home and away derbies within their own conference, plus the following cross-conference matches in the 2014 Vodacom Super Rugby season.

Here is a break down of the teams that will not be facing each other in the 2014 pool games.

 

South Africa

Vodacom Bulls: Reds & Crusaders
Toyota Cheetahs: Waratahs & Highlanders
MTN Lions: Brumbies & Hurricanes
The Sharks: Force & Chiefs
DHL Stormers: Blues & Rebels

Australia

Brumbies: MTN Lions & Highlanders

New Zealand

Blues: DHL Stormers & Rebels
Chiefs: The Sharks & Reds

The 2013 season went down to the wire and with Super Rugby it is not likely to change. This is arguably the best club competition in the world and it delivers up to this status every year.
