  • Hope Zeilinga runs circles around him. Zeilinga has a point to prove here.

  • Thats a pretty useful but young Bulls side. Sharks will need to put them under pressure or the Bulls youngsters will gain confidence and it will be a long day. Sharks forwards will def need to man up a bit. The ball hardly goes to the backs so hope they tackle well.

  • Seems as if they are backing Zeilinga, Reinach and Peet to start this week.

  • Finally they make the right picks. Kruger, Jantjies and Venter out. Bulls website on monday only confirmed Ismaeil injured and four others with little niggles.

    This is a very competitive side. We won’t necessarily win, but at least we give ourselves a sporting chance.

    Would be good to see Pollard and Zelinga battle it out. The loose forward battle will be immense too. But Sharks should win the floor battle.

    If I were hyper critical I would have said change the scrummie and centres too, but this will suffice.
