The Bulls travel to Durban to face the Sharks in what promises to be a cracking Currie Cup fixture at Kings Park on Saturday. The Bulls are at the top of the Currie Cup table while the Sharks are in second place.

When the Sharks came up against the Bulls in Super Rugby Unlocked competition they suffered a 41-14 defeat but have since performed well.
