It's that time of year again.

We have successfully made it through our three months without rugby in the southern hemisphere, and it is time for another exciting season of Super Rugby. 

Now in its third year, the conference system adopted for this competition is by no means perfect and has some quite obvious flaws. What it does bring is an increase in the number of local derbies and increased importance to these games compared with those against teams from other conferences.

With the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia set to fall in the middle of this year's competition, the Australian Conference got underway last weekend to make up for lost games during the tour.

This week the rest of the competition starts, meaning after this weekend we will have no shortage of rugby on our television screens for the next nine months. 

Here we take a look at how the New Zealand teams will fare in the 2013 Super 15.
