Ah yes, folks, this is Currie Cup rugby all right. No minnow bullshit in this game, it’s a proper strength-versus-strength contest at Loftus this evening.

The Sharks are riding high at the top of the log, but will know that a loss to the Bulls will virtually hand Western Province first position on a platter. Will they account for the Bulls as easily as they did in the first round in Durban?

Or will the wounded Bulls bounce back in emphatic style and see off the Sharks’ challenge? They know that, should the Cheetahs beat Western Province, they could well end up outside the top four this weekend, should they lose this match.

Kick-off at Loftus is at 17h05.

Blue Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Burton Francis, 9 Heini Adams, 8 Dewald Potgieter, 7 Pedrie Wannenburg, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (captain), 1 Jaco Engels.
Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Fudge Mabeta, 19 Jacques Burger, 20 Dean Greyling, 21 Francois Brummer, 22 Tiger Mangweni.

The Sharks: 15 Stefan Terblanche (captain), 14 Chris Jordaan, 13 Andries Strauss, 12 Riaan Swanepoel, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Juan Hernandez, 9 Charl McLeod, 8 Keegan Daniel, 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Albert van den Berg, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Craig Burden, 1 Deon Carstens.
Replacements: 16 Skipper Badenhorst, 17 Julian Redelinghuys, 18 Alistair Hargreaves, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Rory Kockott, 21 Monty Dumond, 22 Waylon Murray.

Referee: Jonathan Kaplan
Assistant referees: Gareth Lloyd-Jones, Christie du Preez
TMO: Shaun Veldsman

  • The Bulls win a penalty right in front for lazy running by the Sharks. Francois Brummer slots the penalty and it is a sixpoint game again – 23-29

    The Sharks kick deep and the Bulls come back strongly, taking the ball through the phases.

    The Bulls win a penalty and they have one more shot at the winning score. They opt for the line-out – which is now inside the Sharks 22. THey are going to maul it and then it goes to the backs. The siren goes and the Bulls are 10 metres away. Now they are five metres away. No, they spill the ball in the tackle and the Sharks record a thrilling 29-23 to go back on top oif the standings. This has been as dramatic as anything we’ve seen – the Bulls will hurt, the Sharks will celebrate. Remenmber, we still have plenty of drama to come from the Northern Hemisphere matches this weekend.

    FULL TIME

    Blue Bulls 23 – 29 The Sharks

    Sharks top the log.

  • WOW! What a weekend! Congrats to the Sharks, Bokke and Cheetahs, the latter not so much though, but topping the log without the Boks is something. Can any give me tips on how to top the SB LOG again?

  • Looks like no Jacques Fourie for the bulls for the Currie Cup…

    “South Africa centre Jacque Fourie has been suspended for four weeks for a dangerous tackle on All Blacks centre Ma’a Nonu in the Springboks’ 32-29 Tri-Nations victory on Saturday.”

    “Fourie’s suspension does not begin until September 26, as he was not intending to play next week, and runs until October 19.”
