    Leading up to the grand final, it's always fun to think back on some of the quirky parts of Super Rugby history. As such, I've thrown together some finals themed questions for you all to have a crack at (and hopefully enjoy!).

    Remember that this is all for fun, so don’t feel like you have to take it too seriously! Give the questions you think you might know a go, and don’t worry about looking up the answer: I’ll put up an answer key before posting the next round of questions.

    Scoring criteria is in the small text below the question, with some bonus points on offer.
