Cape Town - The date and times for this year's Super Rugby semi-finals have been confirmed.

The Crusaders will host fellow New Zealand side, the Hurricanes, in the first semi-final on Saturday, July 28 at 09:35 SA time in Christchurch.

In the second semi-final, the Lions will welcome the Waratahs to Ellis Park at 15:05 later in the day.

Should the eight-time champion Crusaders emerge victorious, they will host the final on Saturday, August 4 regardless of who wins the second semi-final.

However, should the Hurricanes, the winners in 2016, upset their opponents, whoever wins the second semi-final will host the final.

The Lions are looking for their first ever Super Rugby title, while the Waratahs were crowned champions in 2014.
