Sharks vs Bulls Preview & Tips
The Bulls have been the dominant side in South African rugby over the last 18 months and are in fine form currently. My best bet is for them to cover the -6 handicap at Kings Park.

Head to Head
The Bulls have won their last three matches against the Sharks. That includes beating them twice in the Rainbow Cup earlier this season. The last match saw the Bulls win 34-22 in Durban in June 2021.
The Sharks are second on the 2021 Currie Cup table but have only managed two wins in their seven matches. Three of their matches have gone down as draws with matches unable to take place due to COVID.
After a victory on the opening weekend of the Currie Cup, the Sharks lost their next match 32-31 to Western Province. They then played the British & Irish Lions in two tour matches, losing both by convincing margins.
The Sharks returned to Currie Cup action with an impressive 47-30 win in Bloemfontein against the Cheetahs. Last week they however suffered a shock 37-27 home defeat to Griquas, despite dominating most facets of play.
Sharks Team News
Sean Everitt has made a few changes to his side. Khutha Mchunu starts at prop ahead of Lourens Adriaanse while Dylan Richardson and Henco Venter come in at flank.
In the backline Grant Williams starts at scrumhalf while Lionel Cronje comes off the bench to play flyhalf. Curwin Bosch moves from flyhalf to fullback.
The Bulls sit at the top of the Currie Cup table with four wins from seven matches. They have drawn two – both because the matches couldn’t take place. Their only defeat came on the opening weekend against Western Province.
Mid-season saw the Bulls miss a number of games due to a COVID outbreak within their squad. This also meant they couldn’t play their tour match against the B+I Lions.
The Pretoria-based outfit returned to Currie Cup action with a bang, beating the Lions 40-21 a couple of weeks ago. Last weekend the Bulls showed their class once again, beating 14-man Western Province 34-13 away.
Bulls Team News
Jake White is unlikely to tinker much with his side. They have not played much rugby and the form of Johan Goosen at flyhalf has been incredible.
