In such a long season there is bound to be more than a couple of comical moments and the rugby365.com team bring you the Wacky awards.
All the on-field and off-field action was digested and debated, but we've selected our favourites who cannot hide from our watchful gaze.
And the 'Raspberry' goes to...
Travelling Wilburys award: Crusaders - Homeless wanderers lived out of their suitcases and asked teams to name the venue they'd like to be beaten at.
TFC or Thanks For Coming award: Melbourne Rebels - The Lions were only too happy to hand over their wooden spoon to the new whipping boys with the leakiest defence in the competition, conceding 74 tries in their 16 matches.
Frank Sinatra award: SANZAR - They chose to do it their way and managed to confuse all and sundry by awarding four points for a bye... for the logical reason that they... erm... can!
Titanic award: Hurricanes - A great team with a history of producing superstars, but they look like a sinking ship this season and have already started throwing stalwarts overboard such as Ma'a Nonu and Andrew Hore.
Loophole award: Schalk Brits and Freddie Michalak for finding a backdoor that allowed them into the competition at the death.
News of the World award: Danny Cipriani - Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch loves the likes of golden boy Cipriani who spends more time in the headlines for his off the field antics (twice caught staying out drinking late and failing to turn up for practice the following day) than he does for rugby reasons.
Best try celebration: Rene Ranger - He doesn't posses the dance moves of Digby Ioane, but his interpretation of the Reds ace's "caterpillar" with the help of teammates holding his legs was a classic.
Can I have 80 minutes of my life back award: Force v Brumbies - The two sides played to a 13-13 draw in Week 14 that was about as exciting as a dinner with Gordon Brown and Robert Pattinson.
The Sebastien Chabal/Hashim Amla award: Joshua Strauss - The Lions loose forward has the most impressive beard by some distance and would easily scare off those with pognophobia (a fear of bears), although if the Franks brothers, Owen and Ben, combined their bears to form a super beard in all its grizzly glory they could give him a run for his money.
So long, farewell award: Phil Waugh (132 caps), Greg Somerville (131), John Smit (125), Victor Matfield (124), Danie Rossouw (116) and Fourie du Preez (112) are the six of the best we won't see again in Super Rugby.
All bark, no bite award: Lions - They came into the season with a lot of noise, all the bells and whistles and once again spent much of the campaign propping up the rest of the table and despite three impressive away wins, weren't able to break their duck at home.
Johan Ackermann award: Tana Umaga - They broke the mould when they made Tana, and he claimed the title of oldest ever Super Rugby player this season at 38 year and eight days, passing Ackermann's record of 37 years and 342 days. The All Blacks legend started his Super Rugby career in 1996 when several of the current coaches were still playing including Todd Blackadder (Crusaders), Mark Hammet (Hurricanes), Pat Lam (Blues), John Plumtree (Sharks), Ewen McKenzie (Reds) and Naka Drotske (Cheetahs).
Sideshow Bob award: Sonny Bill Williams - Who organises a boxing match on their rugby team's bye weekend? Okay, it was against an aging gospel singer, Alipate Liava'a, but the point remains that he went into the ring and chose to participate in a sport where you get punched in the face on his week off!
Pippa Middleton award: Matt Todd - The young tearaway flank stole the show with a number of stunning performances in the coveted Crusaders No.7 jersey reserved for Richie McCaw. The All Blacks captain wasn't as badly missed as most would have expected thanks to the impression made by his understudy Todd.
Unlucky No.10: Stormers - Many forwards may have a bit of a tough and cheek laugh at the brittle men who stand at flyhalf, but the Stormers No.10 jersey was cursed this season with four (Peter Grant, Gary van Aswegen, Lionel Cronje and Tim Lane) pivots crocked at the same time.
Dictator award: Mark Hammet - The Hurricanes boss appears to have survived a players mutiny by telling senior star to take a hike, while Andy Friend was sacked as Brumbies coach just two games into the season.
Copyright award: Ashley Johnson v Radike Samo - The pair are locked in a tight competition for the best afro, and narrowly beat off the challenge from Schalk Burger v Beau Robinson in the floppy blond haired flank competition.
Most active rugby player on Twitter: Reds playmaker Quade Cooper - @QuadeCooper is a well known tweetaholic, closely followed by Bryan Habana - @BryanHabana and James O'Connor @JamesOConnor832. (And yes, we're on Twitter too, follow us - @rugby365com.)
