Johannesburg - Super Rugby leading points and try scorers after the 2018 semi-finals on Saturday.

Next Saturday's final will see the eighth-time champion Crusaders host the Lions - looking for their first title - in Christchurch.

Kick-off is at 09:35 SA time.

Waratahs pivot Bernard Foley will finish this year's tournament as the leading point scorer, while Sharks flyhalf Robert du Preez will be the top South African.

The honour of being the leading try-scorer will go down to the final weekend, with Crusaders wing George Bridge and Waratahs counterpart Taqele Naiyaravoro a single five-pointer behind current leader, Hurricanes flyer Ben Lam, who has finished his season.
