Now, the Hurricanes might beat the Crusaders: Crusaders - 34pts
Chiefs beat Brumbies? Brumbies-36,Chiefs-36.
Highlanders must beat blues with+.Highlanders- 31
Reds beat Waratahs. Waratahs - 27
Sharks v Stormers = draw.Sharks28,Stormers-30.
This puts Highlanders into forth spot.

If Crusaders beat Hurricanes with or without bonus, and the Brumbies lose to the Chiefs,then it's Crusaders,Chiefs (if they get five tries), Brumbies, and Highlanders in that order provided the other results are as above.

If, however, the Waratahs beat the Reds with a bonus, then they get the 4th spot.(other results going as above) If they win without the bonus, then they still get there as it is unlikely that the Highlanders will score over 150 points in their game.

If, again, and however, the Stormers beat the Sharks, then it's all over for the teams below the Stormers on the table, including the Waratahs, if the Stormers get a bonus.

It the Sharks get a bonus after beating the Stormers, then they would have to get 12 more points in the differential than the Highlanders to go above them in the table.
