Saturday's Currie Cup Match at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit is vital to the Pumas and their visitors from Western Province for very different reasons. While the visitors currently top the regular season table, and all but mathematically assured of their place in the semi-final, they are anxious for victory as they seek to stay ahead of the Lions, who they lead by four points with three games remaining.

The prize of course for finishing at the top of the table at the end of the regular season, is home advantage through the knockout stages. The Pumas meanwhile, who were beaten last weekend by the Lions 29-15 at Ellis Park, are embroiled in a three way fight for what appears to be the last two places available for the semi-finals.

Lying in fourth place, the Pumas trail the Sharks by a point, while they are ahead of the Cheetahs on points difference only. But they will feel that they have an advantage with a home game against the lowly Bulls, and a trip to the winless Eastern Province Kings to come in the final two weeks. Pumas coach Jimmy Stonehouse has seven changes from the side that went down to the Golden Lions, as he seeks to propel his charges into the semi-final mix.
