Finally we get to the game most of us have been waiting for. The battle for top spot on the log (at the time of writing, Friday afternoon, no other games had been played so I have no idea whether Province got 5 points and are currently leading the log?) is upon us and we will have a runaway leader should these two teams not draw this afternoon.

The Lions have had a great season so far, starting off strong and keeping it up until they lost their unbeaten record against Province last weekend. This week they are back at home and face a Sharks team that has had an up and down couple of weeks, from losing to Griquas in Kimberley, beating Province at Newlands and then not being able to score four tries against the Leopards at home last weekend.

This all points to a game where both teams will have nothing to lose and everything to gain and we can only hope for a spectacle much in the same vain as the Super Rugby contest these two teams played a few months ago.

Be seated at 17h00 for this game, it’s going to be a cracker.
