The Super Rugby season will kick off earlier next year and run without a break for 21 weeks, organisers said Tuesday as they retained the current 15-team, three conference format.

Governing body SANZAAR said the competition would start on February 15 - a week earlier than this year - when the Chiefs host the Highlanders in New Zealand.

The season will run uninterrupted until the final on July 6. This is because there are no June Tests due to the World Cup being held in Japan from September to November.

Aside from these tweaks, the format remains the same with three conferences involving 15 teams, with each playing 16 games.

The finals series is also unchanged with eight qualifying from the three conference winners, along with five wildcards.

SANZAAR, which released the schedule three months earlier than usual, is currently conducting a review to determine Super Rugby's future up to 2030.

No NZ opposition until halfway through? I though the Lions were the best Saffer team?

I would have preferred a start against the Kiwis with an easier run in

Easy draw for the Sharks. I expect total and utter domination.

In all seriousness, that's a very good draw for the Sharks. Our tour is only 3 games, two of which are Kiwi teams we traditionally play well against. And a bye after the tour.

Always good to play the Stormers in the last game :nod:

I would say the Bulls have the easiest draw, no?
Besides we don't have to play ourselves

Until they fix this "Don't Play 2 teams" bullshit I don't think I'm ever going to be into Super Rugby the way I once was. :(

Jaguares-Highlanders will be played at 17:15 local, or 02:15 in Argentina.
Jaguares-Hurricanes will be played at 19:35 local, or 04:15 in Argentina.

Not again, please! Why won't they move both matches a couple hours earlier?
