THIS WEEK ON STAN SPORT

15 JUNE, 2023

It's win or go home as Super Rugby Pacific reaches the Semi Final stage with the Brumbies flying the Aussie flag, IndyCar races through the Grand Prix of Road America, and the heavyweights and women are in action at PFL 5.

All the action. Ad-free. Live & On Demand.

The unmissable Super Rugby Pacific semi-finals are here, with fans being treated to a rematch of the 2022 grand final in one game while the Brumbies look to make history in the other.

Former Wallaby and Stan Sport commentator Justin Harrison will be on the ground in New Zealand during the coverage as the Brumbies take on the Chiefs, with the visitors looking to upset the fancied home side to steal a place in the grand final. ​
Viewers will also be able to select between either an Australian or Kiwi feed for this game.

SEMI FINALS

CRUSADERS V BLUES
FRIDAY 16 JUNE
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:30PM AEST

This is a rematch of the 2022 grand final, won 21-7 by the Crusaders at Eden Park. The Crusaders also beat the Blues 15-3 in Christchurch this season and coach Scott Robertson will be eyeing yet another title before taking the helm of the All Blacks.

The Crusaders will continue to be without senior lock Sam Whitelock (Achilles), while the Blues welcome back powerful winger Caleb Clarke from an ankle injury.
"He brings a point of difference around the aerial game, if we contest in the air and from kickoffs," Blues coach Leon MacDonald said.

"But it's also his ability to beat the first defender and he's pretty lethal close to the line as well, where he's so powerful. It's great to have him back."

CHIEFS V BRUMBIES
SATURDAY 17 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:30PM AEST

The Brumbies are out to create Australian Super Rugby history by knocking over the minor premier Chiefs in Hamilton. No Aussie team has won a playoff game in New Zealand since the competition was launched in 1996.

But former Wallabies Stephen Hoiles and Justin Harrison are tipping the visitors.

"Unless the Chiefs can find the form that we saw a few weeks ago, or midway through the season, I'm going the Brums in a big upset here," Hoiles said on Stan Sport.
Added Harrison: "Historically the Brumbies have somehow always been able to outperform the Chiefs when it mattered."

IndyCar ditches the bumps of downtown Detroit for the billiard-smooth course Road America this weekend when the series screams back into life.

Momentum is firmly on the side of Chip Ganassi at the halfway mark with three of its four drivers occupying the top four. Spain’s Alex Palou heads the standings winning two of the past three races. His Swedish teammate Marcus Ericsson isn’t far behind in second with New Zealand’s Scott Dixon in fourth.

Chip Ganassi Racing has been the team to beat at Road America. Since 2016, the team has won four of the eight races. However, Team Penske isn’t far behind on three wins. Last year it was American Josef Newgarden who claimed the scalps. The two-time champion sits third in this year’s standings after finally winning the Indianapolis 500.

Kiwi Scott McLaughlin and Australia’s Will Power hold down seventh and eighth in the standings, the pair split by just three points. It’s been a rollercoaster ride for the pair this season that sees them around 100 points adrift of the series lead.
