The Blue Bulls will host the Sharks XV in what should be an absorbing encounter on Friday, writes MARIETTE ADAMS.
Neither of these sides has fared particularly well in the Currie Cup qualifying tournament and sit 10th and 12th on the log respectively.
The Bulls, however, scored a confidence-boosting 57-28 bonus-point win over the Griffons last weekend, while the Sharks XV showed tremendous tenacity to clinch a come-from-behind 34-26 win against the EP Kings.
In other matches this weekend, log-leaders Griquas, who have won eight of their nine matches, travel to Joburg to face the eighth-placed Golden Lions XV, who have just three wins and lost to the Pumas in round nine.
The struggling Valke host basement dwellers the Welwitchias and the SWD Eagles take on the Border Bulldogs in George.
