Super Rugby: The Keys for Each Semifinalist to Win This Weekend

After 19 weeks, the Super Rugby semifinals are finally upon us. The remaining teams of the competition have unsurprisingly found their way into these final four spots, each following their own roads to the finals.

Both games promise to be hard fought encounters, with the open running of the Blues and Reds in the first game, and the uncompromising defence and hardness of the Stormers and Crusaders in the second.

We are left with a situation where any two of these four teams could potentially make it into the Final, provided they bring the right attitude and play to their strengths.

And that is key. The Blues and Reds especially have been known to be inconsistent in the way they play, as well as their commitment displayed during the game, although this has been a problem for the Blues more so than the Reds.

So, how does each team need to play this weekend? What must they do to ensure that they are the ones that will progress to the big dance next week?

The following slides outline the way I think these teams need to play to win this weekend.
