This is the last weekend for teams in the Super Rugby Unlocked competition to stake a claim to the title that the Bulls are running away with.
The Pretoria team – who get a bye this weekend – have been revived by the return of former Springbok coach Jake White who has rebuilt them as the dominant franchise in South African rugby.
The Bulls have scored 19 log points from four out of five wins. The Stormers and the Sharks are on 13 with the Cheetahs one behind on 12.
The biggest contest this weekend will be between the Stormers and the Cheetahs in Cape Town.
A key player will be the nuggety scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies who returns to the Cape squad on Saturday having missed last weekend’s match against Griqua. He has struggled with his form this season.
The Sharks were in action against Griquas on Friday night.
