While I understand the need for each 'conference' to have a representative in the super finals... how is the profit sharing split? Particularly when one team finishes above another but has to travel away. Very hard to find details on this.

Don't think they're sharing any profits.

Host keep the gate - make a payment to the travelling side (not sure about payments and expenses for the refs). As you progress thru the playoffs you "earn" more money as the travelling side.

Profits are there if you have the crowd numbers but the TV packages already paid by Rupert add to that

There's a bit of info in here from 2016...

Travelling NZ Super Rugby teams get dinged by high Kiwi dollar
RICHARD KNOWLER
Last updated 14:20, July 20 2016

The strong New Zealand dollar hasn't done the Crusaders, Chiefs and Highlanders any favours ahead of their Super Rugby quarterfinal matches this weekend.

Under Sanzaar rules the host union are required to pay a fee of $75,000 in Australian dollars to the visiting clubs for the first round of playoff games, ensuring the three New Zealand sides, as well as the Sharks from South Africa, are rewarded for qualifying.

The Crusaders meet the Lions in Johannesburg, the Chiefs visit the Stormers in Cape Town and the Highlanders will be hosted by the Brumbies in Canberra. The Sharks are travelling to Wellington to play the Hurricanes.

As of Wednesday the New Zealand dollar was trading at around 94 cents, indicating the Kiwi clubs can expect a payment of around $80,000 for participating in the first round of sudden-death games.

It's no secret that the Kiwi dollar has been on a tear in recent years, and given it struck a high of just over 96 cents against its Aussie counterpart earlier this month clubs won't have budgeted for an unexpected windfall.

Like some exporters struggling because of the high dollar, the Super Rugby clubs, if so inclined, could reflect on how much better their balance sheet would look if the rate was more favourable.

For example, in 2012, when the Crusaders travelled to Hamilton to play the Chiefs in their semifinal, the rate hovered around 76 cents. If this still applied the Crusaders would receive a payout of almost NZ$99,000 - almost $20,000 more.

The appearance fees increase for the semifinal and grand final matches, with a payment of A$100,000 and A$125,000, respectively, having to be made by the host clubs.

If either the Crusaders, Highlanders or the Chiefs qualify for the grand final but play none of their games at home, they could bank around NZ$319,000 in appearance fees if the current exchange rate holds firm.

The Crusaders' only chance of hosting a match is if they, and the Sharks, who qualified one place below them in eighth position, meet in the grand final in Christchurch.

Unlike other teams, which can stage their fixtures in much bigger arenas, the Crusaders' earning power is restricted because AMI Stadium can only house a maximum of around 22,000 supporters with additional seating.

The match against the Hurricanes last weekend, which included the extra seating, was sold out. That was the first full-house this season. Crowds for the seven other "home" games averaged around 13,000.

Sanzaar also pays for the majority of the travelling team's costs during the playoffs. Flights, accommodation, airline and departure taxes and meals are all covered.

The host union is expected to pay for the bus and luggage transfers, as well as any costs associated with the venue hire for training fields.

The travelling side pays for additional touring party members, gym or swimming pool hire, transport costs for training and liaison officer costs if residing in the team hotel.
