There is no doubt as to the match of the weekend in Round 6 of the 2015 Currie Cup. Loftus Versfeld Stadium will see the second placed Blue Bulls entertain top of the table Golden Lions. Both sides have perfect winning records at the halfway stage of the regular seasons, with five out of five in the winning column. The lions hold a slight advantage over their rivals, as they have secured a try-scoring bonus point in all five fixtures, whereas the Bulls have managed that on only four occasions to date.

While nothing is certain at this stage, it would take a major downturn in the fortunes of either side to see them missing out on a top two place, and a home semi-final in the play-offs. Saturday's clash may have a significant impact on the outcome of the race for top spot, however, which would ensure home advantage in any possible Grand Final.

With three of the Golden Lions last four fixtures being at home, they will feel that victory on Saturday will just about clinch the vital top spot. Which may just be the motivation that the Bulls need to come up with the win in front of what is certain to be a large home crowd. In what might just be a dress rehearsal for the Grand Final.

The outcome of Saturdays Currie Cup match at Loftus Versfeld Stadium Pretoria between the Blue Bulls and the Golden Lions will go some considerable way to hinting at the chances of either side making it through to the post-season play-offs in this seasons tournament. On face value, the Golden Lions have made an exhilarating start to their campaign, with three wins from their first four fixtures, to lift them to the lofty heights of second place on the table, behind Western Province.

However, their three wins have come from home and away games against bottom of the table Eastern Province Kings, and a home success against Saturday's opponents the Bulls, who are currently down in sixth position. Their only fixture against a top four side to date resulted in defeat to Western Province.

The Blue Bulls will point to the difficult fixture list that they were handed to start the season, as a major reason for their early season struggles. They have been beaten twice by top of the table Western Province, and away from home by their visitors this weekend. Victory in Pretoria this weekend would certainly put them back in with a chance of surging for a top four finishing position, come the end of the regular season.
