    @Bryce – what the odds like on this game? I would expect the Sharks to be favourites.

    Sharks around $1.6-1… Stormers $2.4-1…

    Win margin of 1-12pts for the above are good… $2.60 and $3.40 respectively…

    I think the sharks are just better at the moment, more balanced side and more balanced approach!

    Reply to Morné @ 6:15 pm: en hard!!! Sharks by 15. Stormers will be missing Eben and Juan. and they are making the same basic mistakes as last season. Expect lost of scrum penalties against them….

    Stormers should be out of the SS
    by the end of March.
    Sharks, to be followed by
    Chiefs
    Brumbies
    Crusaders
    All at Newlands, but I can’t really
    see them winning.
    Mid table the best they can hope for.

    Reply to Boertjie @ 10:48 pm: Eina – 3 hard games in a row but surely having to play them at home rather than away is an advantage?

    Jeez, you lose one game and you are written off for the season. How many games did the Sharks lose last year and they still made the final. They even lost to the Lions! 8O

    I would not write the Stormers off just yet.

    Do I think they will beat the Sharks this weekend? Probably not, but I expect a much improved performance. Their fortunes will improve greatly once Tiaan and Eben make their way back. I’ll say it again, Deon is one hell of a rugby player but a shit hooker.
