Both Tim Horan and Matt Burke have locked in Reds to win a home final against the Crusaders after a mouth-watering weekend of Super Rugby action.

The Reds scored the required bonus point with a 5 try demolition of the Waratahs in front of 41,533 rugby fans at Suncorp.

It was a different tale for the Brumbies who have spent most of the season atop the Australian conference but went down to lowly-ranked Auckland Blues at the last hurdle.

Result: Reds advance to Super Rugby finals and keep their hopes of back-to-back Super Rugby titles but the Brumbies season ends today.

Super Rugby Finals

The Stormers and Chiefs earn a bye next week by finishing first and second and will advance to the semi finals Saturday 28 July.

Crusaders earn a home preliminary semi final against the Bulls and the Reds earn a home game against the Sharks. Both games will be played Saturday 21 July.

Matt Burke reckons the South African teams will fare less well with the journey down under and to NZ putting them under pressure.

Tim Horan agreed adding he reckoned the home teams will have the advantage.

Who do you think will win the Super Rugby title 2012?
