The Highlanders have defeated the Chiefs 25-15 in Dunedin, and in doing so, handed the Hurricanes the conference title.

Trailing 7-5 at the break, the Southern men have held off a rampant finishing Chiefs team to win, however have been unable to secure a bonus point.

That means the Hurricanes, who earlier throttled the Crusaders 35-15 in Christchurch, have been assured of top spot.

The final make up of the overall ladder won't be decided until tomorrow morning, when the Jaguares host the Lions in Buenos Aries.
