    The Reds after a week off take on the Sharks who lost against the Force last week.
    Should be an interesting game for the Reds as this is a golden opportunity for the Reds to get one over the Sharks.
    Although I’m sure after last week that the Sharks will be looking to up their performance.

    I’m thinking that the reds can do this one, after watching the Sharks last week – they just looked out of sorts, if they continue that form then the Reds can take it in a close one.

    Any news on injuries for the Reds?

    Front row still has issues, but apart from that it looks like a very good team... the best they've put out since round one.

    Could be an upset on the cards here.

    FMD that backline looks good. And still got Caleb Brown to add to the backline.

    Pretty handy-looking Sharks side there, especialy with big AJ in the 2nd row, Smit starting at 2 and the propping duo of Carstens and Botha- ouch!

    This is an absolute must-win for the boys from Durbs in order to stop the slide of recent weeks, and also in order to get back on track for a semi spot. After the rubbish served up by them the last 2 weeks, I suspect there might just be some bruised ego`s looking to enhance their reputations again, by playing rugby. At least, I hope so.

    Too much pressure going on Quade it seems. Probably need to be pushed to 12 just to let him run it and not worry about carrying the whole backline.

    Once again the 2nd half let the Reds down.

    Classical Sharks rugby of the late 90`s really- subdue up front, penetrate with the backs in the 2nd half. Just too bad they left their A-game at home in the previous 2 rounds, but still sitting pretty in position no. 3 on the log. And they stopped the slide!

    the sharks backline looked crisp and smooth in the second half

    the reds look horrible, no creativity, almost like a rugby league backline

    I wondered how long it would take before somebody mentioned Diet Rugby and the Reds in the same sentence.......

    Seriously though, Brad Barritt has really come to the fore this season, and might just be pushing for Bok selection at this early stage, as is Waylon Murray, who seems to have spent a lot of time during the off season working on his hand skills, time well spent IMO. Looking good for the Sharks for the Currie Cup later this year.
