M1. Bulls v Hurricanes
The Bulls were nowhere against weekend when they were humiliated by a superb Lions side in Johannesburg. They now face a side with the same strengths and style as the Lions. Despite travelling on tour with a few stars staying at home, the Hurricanes should beat a Bulls side devoid of any confidence.
M2. Sharks v Stormers
Both teams come off good wins last weekend. The Sharks have had to travel back from Singapore but may take the edge off them. They were made to work. The Stormers took their time to strike against the Blues in Cape Town last weekend but they came away with a good win. The Sharks have a good record against the Stormers. Play wide on what should be a titanic match.
M3. Jaguares v Brumbies
The Jaguares had a bye last weekend while the Brumbies were scrapping for their lives in Port Elizabeth to eventually eke a narrow win. The Argentines still have hopes to make the last eight and a Sharks loss a few hours earlier will give them some blood to smell. Go with the home win.
M4. Lions v Kings
Despite the Kings' recent improvement, the Lions are the strongest team in the country by quite a long way. The Kings will need to be better than ever of trouble this side who have their sights firmly set on home playoffs.
M5. Boland v Border
Both teams have surprised so far in the Supersport Rugby Challenge. Perhaps, more so Border. This should be close but the narrow preference is for Border.
