As nine teams head into the Round 19 with play-off aspirations, we pause to reflect on those players who will be leaving Super Rugby, or representing new teams next year.

The following players have been confirmed by their respective franchises as moving on at the conclusion of the season.

Some have already played their last games, others are guaranteed a shot at Super Rugby glory, while others hang in limbo with their team's fate depending on Round 19 results.

To those who are farewelling Super Rugby - thank you for your service.

To those who are switching teams - best of luck at your new franchises in 2015!
