The winless Sharks have been ranked as the South African team least likely to advance to the Vodacom URC quarter-finals this season, according to SARugbymag.co.za readers.
With four losses in four games, the Sharks got their URC campaign off to an abysmal start that has convinced readers the Durbanites are a long shot to turn it around and reach the playoffs.
The 3-1 Bulls and 2-2 Stormers are South Africa’s strongest contenders to make the knockout rounds, according to readers.
Readers showed surprising faith in the 1-3 Lions, voting them twice as likely as the Sharks to advance, despite collecting a solitary victory in four matches.
