The Bulls welcome the Sharks to Loftus Versfeld for a Super Rugby Unlocked fixture on Saturday evening. Neither side have been particularly impressive although the Sharks have only played once, something which may cost them this weekend.

Bulls Form

The Bulls began their Super Rugby Unlocked campaign with a scrappy 30-23 win over Griquas on home soil. That was followed by a narrow 19-17 defeat to the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein. 

The latter result came down to the last kick of the game, which the Bulls missed to hand the hosts victory. It has been a dry few seasons for the Bulls but the appointment of Jake White as Director of Rugby has many believing they are serious challengers this season.

Bulls News

Utility back Gio Aplon has been ruled out for the season with David Kriel likely to replace him. The Bulls have no other injury concerns at this stage.

Sharks Form

The Sharks had a bye last week after beating the Lions 19-16 on the opening weekend of Super Rugby Unlocked. 

The bye would not have done the Sharks any favours so early in the competition. With so little game time in recent months the Sharks would have preferred building some momentum after their opening victory and this could play into the Bulls hands.

Sharks News

The Sharks welcome back a number of players this weekend. Sbu Nkosi is available for selection on the wing while hooker Kerron van Vuuren, wing Madosh Tambwe and flank James Venter are all available.

New signing Yaw Penxe is also available this week.

Bulls vs Sharks Head to Head

The Bulls lead the Sharks 4-3 over their last seven matches. The last time they met the Bulls won 49-28 at Loftus Versfeld just a month ago.

Bulls vs Sharks Odds

The Bulls can be backed at 2.00 with the Sharks paying 1.83 with bet365. A draw is priced at 17.00.

The handicap for the match is set at one point.

Bulls vs Sharks Match Up

This is set to be a brutal encounter between the two forward packs and the winner of that will almost certainly take the spoils at the final whistle. Both sides have been understandably rusty and the Sharks had a bye last weekend, not something that is ideal at such an early stage.

  • Bulls beat the Sharks 49-28 in their last match a few weeks ago.
  • Bulls have won 3 of their last 4 home matches against the Sharks.
