Apart from the still-undefeated Blues Bulls, the North Sections challenge in the 2010 Vodacom Cup folded like a house of cards this weekend, with South section teams winning three of the four quarter-finals.

Free State were the only side to overturn the odds away from home as they defeated the Lions on Friday night, to set up a semi-final against Loffie Eloff’s Boland, who saw off the Leopards in Wellington on Saturday. In the other two quarter-finals, the home teams triumphed, with the Blue Bulls winning an arm wrestle against Western Province and the Sharks XV running up a big lead against Griquas, before falling asleep, just as they have done in virtually every other game this season.

It’s the semi-final involving those two teams, though, that will really capture the imagination and a truly freaky coincidence will see them lock horns on exactly the same day – and at the same venue – that their respective Super 14 franchise teams are due to play. When it comes to a local derby, the Bulls against the Sharks is probably the pick of them. Having two matches involving these sides on one day is just gravy and I’m sure all the Sharks fans in that neck of the woods will be heading down to Loftus a few hours early to shout for the boys in white and black.

  • Good luck to both Shark teams. Should be plenty Sharks supporters at the game. πŸ™‚

    For the S14 this is a real biggie, Sharks against Bulls. Going to be a tough battle.

  • If we go by the numbers : Sharks managed a 2 or 3 point win over
    Lions, Lions went down against the bulls by 40 . . . Does this mean the Bulls should run out comfortable winners by around 35 this weekend?

    Then again, we managed wins over the Reds and Blues . . . but that was in Dbn . . .

    I guess if it was this easy to make a prediction I`d be top of the log in SB ! :mrgreen:
