The Sharks are one of three teams chasing the final place in the post-season play-offs, along with the Cheetahs and the Pumas. On Saturday, the Sharks travel to Kimberley to take on the bottom of the table side, the Griquas, knowing that a win will almost certainly set up a winner take all clash in Bloem in the final week of the regular season against the Cheetahs.
The Natal Sharks have recorded just three wins this season, and just one of those came away from home, A double over the Eastern Province Kings, is hardly the sort of results that set the heart racing amongst supporters, and even should they win their final two matches, ands snatch fourth position, they will then likely face the Lions, who have already beaten them both home and away in 2015.
The Griquas lost an amazing match in Round 8, when they travelled to play the Kings in a bottom of the table clash, and were beaten 37-40, with both teams posting five tries each. That defeat has left the Griquas four points adrift of their rivals, and desperate for the win on Saturday that might yet haul them off of the foot of the table, as they seek to avoid having to go through another qualifying process for a place in the 2016 Currie Cup Premier Division.
