Thanks fot creating the thread. The TRF regulars seems to be slacking or its just the pro 14 people IDK.

This is the round with the South African final.

Bulls has the best chance to take the overall comp win vs benneton because they will only lose four players for the final. But if Sharks can beat Bulls with a bonus point. And we have not lost a game for over a year at home apparently then we will lose 9 Springboks for the final. So many neutrals saying its better if the Bulls win this game.

Baird just ran around in a circle like he's playing u10s and sill scored the try that started 40m out.

If he puts it all together...

There is no meaningful game up north this round/competition. When we get the real tournament going next year get ready for five star threads!

If the Sharks ever want to get anywhere they need to get rid of Bosch. I saw he wanted to go to the stormers let him go that is where all the second rate players go anyway

I dont know much about Benneton but they better have a good forwards game otherwise it will be a long afternoon. Bulls bully you at the breakdown. Our forwards has come away with their tails between their legs for the the third consecutive game against us. So it shows the Sharks need to improve to be trophy challengers

I've watched Benetton play and wasn't all that impressed. They've improved for sure, but I think a lot of teams aren't taking the Rainbow Cup as seriously as a regular PRO14 season. And after all they've been through over the past 15 months I can't blame them. Chalk it up to burn out.

I predict the Bulls will beat Benetton by at least 17 points.
