The Sharks travel to Kempton Park, to be the first guys to take the Valke on at Barnard Park, their new home.
Will the Valke be able to bounce back from last week’s thrashing at the hands of WP?
Or will the Sharks get one of the two try bonus points that they need with an emphatic win?
Kick off in Kempton Park at Barnard Stadium at 15:00 SA Time.
Television coverage: SuperSport 7, Showsport 4*, NOT on Skysport
*Note: Both the Valke v Sharks and Boland v Lions matches have been advertised on Showsport but there is only one slot being used so it is a lottery as to which game will be shown
