Highlanders vs Chiefs
Super Rugby Pacific replaces the Trans-Tasman, Super Rugby Australia and Super Rugby Aotearoa competitions which were brought in during COVID-affected seasons.
The new competition returns to the 12-team tournament with Moana Pasifika and Fijian Drua added in place of South Africa and Argentina teams. The teams will play 14 regular season matches made up of 11 round robin matches and three derby/rivalry matches.
All Super Rugby games in 2022 can be streamed in Australia via Stan Sport, while one Saturday night game a week will be broadcast on free to air on Channel 9.
