WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) Whatever the outcome of Saturday's final between the Hurricanes and Highlanders, Super Rugby will crown a first-time champion and a wait of almost 20 years will end for some of the tournament's most long-suffering fans.

The Wellington-based Hurricanes and Dunedin-based Highlanders are playing in their second final, and the Hurricanes are hosting the championship match for the first time.

The Highlanders made their only previous final appearance in 1999, the Hurricanes in 2006, and both were thwarted in their title ambitions by seven-time champions the Crusaders.
