The 2008 Super 14 season started in February 2008 with pre-season matches held from mid-January. It finished on 31 May, when the Crusaders won their seventh Super Rugby title with a 20–12 victory over the Waratahs in front of the Crusaders' home fans. The 2008 season was the third of the expansion, which led to the name change to the Super 14. The schedule, which covered 3½ months, featured a total of 94 matches, with each team playing one full round robin against the 13 other teams, two semi-finals and a final. Every team received one bye over the 14 rounds.

Introduction of Experimental law variations

:"See also: Playing rugby union"The 2008 competition is currently the highest level competition to trial any of the International Rugby Board's (IRB) Experimental law variations (ELVs). The laws had been trialled in various competitions in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. The highest level competition the laws had previsouly been introduced to was the 2007 Australian Rugby Championship. The introduction of the laws for the 2008 season was approved by the competition's governing body, SANZAR, at a meeting on 4 December 2007.cite news| url=http://www.nzherald.co.nz/category/story.cfm?c_id=80&objectid=10480254 |title=Rule changes to 'supercharge Super 14' |publisher=nzherald.co.nz |accessdate=2008-12-05 |date=2008-12-04 |last=Geenty |first=Mark]

SANZAR decided not to adopt all the ELVs, and has decided to adopt the following:
*The corner posts are moved so that they are outside the junction of the touchline and goal-line. A player will also not be in touch if they are touching the corner post unless they are also touching either the touchline, or ground over the touchline.
*A ball can be thrown backwards on a quick throw-in rather than having to be thrown straight.
*The offside line will now occur immediately once a tackle is made.
*At the breakdown the Scrum-half (half-back) cannot be touched unless they are touching the ball.
*During a scrum, with the exception of forwards in the scrum, and each team's scrum-half, the offside line will now be 5 metres behind the hindmost foot of a scrum.
*With the exception of offside, not entering the breakdown through the gate, and foul-play, the punishment will be a free kick.cite news| url=http://www.planetrugby.com/Story/0,18259,3551_2942686,00.html |title=SANZAR embrace ELVs for S14 |publisher=planetrugby.com |date=2008-12-04 |accessdate=2008-12-05]
