An all-New Zealand Super Rugby semifinal round is possible...but is it going to happen?

The TAB has set odds at $5.25 for four New Zealand teams to advance this week. While at the other end of the scale, it's $61 for zero teams to make it.

The Super Rugby quarter-finals kick off tomorrow night when the Brumbies face the Highlanders in Canberra. The defending champions and the Australian Conference champions met in April with the Highlanders winning 23-10.

The Hurricanes are the only New Zealand team to host a quarter-final as the top seed take on the Sharks in Wellington on Saturday night. That is followed by two games in South Africa on Sunday morning when the Crusaders face the Lions and the Chiefs play the Stormers.

If all four New Zealand teams win their quarter-finals the semifinal breakdown would be:

Hurricanes v Crusaders, Wellington
Highlanders v Chiefs, Dunedin
