The Wildebeest will have to put last week’s narrow 35-28 loss to the Valke behind them when they take on the Platinum Leopards this Friday night at Woodburn Stadium, Pietermaritzburg at 7pm.

Currently in fourth place, five points ahead of SWD who are also chasing a quarter-final spot, the Wildebeest are almost assured of going through to the final eight, writes Mike Marnewick of www.sharksrugby.co.za.

The Leopards take on the Pumas are second-last on the A section log and will be going all out to upset the applecart and overhaul the points difference (currently 26) and hope for the Wildebeest loss.

For the KZN side, a win is paramount and the festival air that always pervades in big matches in Maritzburg will hopefully carry them through.

  • Wes is stirring. He’s right, though. Wildebeest have been poor this year.

  • Luckily Brad is not Dries who would try and run over me. Brad will probably have a go at the gap. :razz:
