Cape Town - *** Stats updated after the 2019 Super Rugby final ***

The Crusaders will host the Jaguares in the 2019 Super Rugby final in Christchurch on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 09:35 SA time.

Having started in 1996, this will be the 24th final.

To date, New Zealand teams have emerged victorious on 17 occasions while Australian teams have tasted success in four finals.

South Africa have only had three years to cheer - and only if you're a Bulls supporter!

All five New Zealand teams have tasted victory champagne - Crusaders (10), Blues (3), Chiefs (2) and the Hurricanes and Highlanders once apiece.

The Brumbies (2), Waratahs and Reds (once each) have given Australia reason to rejoice, while just the Pretoria-based Bulls have flown the SA flag highest (2007, 2009, 2010).
