With the Mitre 10 Cup finishing the group stages, Canterbury will stay in the hunt for the title but won't host a play off game for the first time since 2014. Auckland and Tasman bagged the top two spots with Canterbury and Wellington finishing 3rd and 4th respectively.
Auckland make the Semi Final's for the first time in 4 seasons after winning 9 from 10 games this season and finishing on 45 log points.
In the Championship, Waikato, Otago, Hawke's Bay and Northland are all in the running for promotion into the Premiership as they head into the play offs.
Taranaki have been relegated out of the Premiership with just 2 wins from their 10 game campaign. It is a huge turnaround for them after finishing top of the Premiership last season. Taranaki have only played in the Premiership since it's inception and will look to bounce back and get promoted next season
