The Sharks will hopefully only be good hosts at the after party this evening.
Will the Sharks delivery another scintilating performance and carry on where they left off last week?
Will the Cheetahs bounce back from their first home defeat in 2 years and show that they are STILL a hoodoo side for the Sharks?
The Cheetahs have it all to play for and, should things not bounce their way, could see themselves slip another position down the table.
Kick-Off in Durban at ABSA Park at 17:00 SA time.
