It’s a big weekend for some of the key contenders in this year’s competition.
The Sharks and Waratahs do battle in Durban, while the champion Chiefs travel to Pretoria. They face a Bulls side high on confidence, who will be in no mood to provide a tonic for the Chiefs’ shock loss to the Force in Round 6.
The men from Perth take a rest this week, which means there’ll be no Nick Cummins to occupy the post-match interviewers.
We’ll have to make do with what promises to be a mouth-watering weekend of matches.
