With Super Round on the horizon, teams are starting to make their move as Super Rugby Pacific ramps up for round seven.

The action kicks off in Christchurch as the Crusaders host the Highlanders. The Crusaders will be buoyed after their dominant win over the Chiefs as they push for the top two whilst the Highlanders are refusing to panic despite remaining the lone winless team in 2022.

This is followed by the Fijian Drua welcoming the NSW Waratahs to the Gold Coast. The Drua are looking to build off their narrow defeat to the Rebels as they hunt for their second win. Meanwhile, the Waratahs have been boosted by the return of Wallabies captain Michael Hooper.

Saturday's action commences in Auckland as the Blues host Moana Pasifika. The hosts kicked off the round with a 32-19 win over the newcomers on Tuesday and will be out to complete the double.

Brisbane looms as the host for arguably the match of the round with the Queensland Reds facing the Brumbies. The top two sides on the leader once again will battle it out, with the Brumbies eager to replicate their 16-12 win a fortnight ago. As for the Reds, Brad Thorn's men are hoping they can replicate last year's Super Rugby AU Final at the same venue, pulling off an after-the-siren victory.

The round finishes on Sunday as the Hurricanes host the Chiefs at Sky Stadium. The hosts have opted to move Jordie Barrett to inside centre for the crucial clash whilst the Chiefs welcome back Luke Jacobson from injury.
