    This looks like a one sided story… the Sharks really have deserved to be on top of the ladder, great defence (although their attack at times… well you just have to wonder).
    The Highlanders although trying their asses of are not playing well, last week was a comedy of errors that could have seem them clench the game many times.

    Got to go for the Sharks by at least 10

    Michalak will be joining the Sharks only after the World Cup- he`s still hoping to displace Sklera and Beauxis for the World Cup, from what I`ve heard.

    Word is that Butch James and John Smit are being rested- with Frans Steyn moving into 10, and Bismarck Du Plessis starting at 2. Haven`t seen the official Sharks line-up, but the biggest threat for the Sharks is under-estimating the opposition.

    That said, it`s a class pack, their defence is pretty solid(although with a better body-position in the tackle, it could be even better), and Percy is kicking the goals, so they should win this one on a canter. Only problem is their attack, which has lacked imagination- with Steyn at 10, maybe there`ll be more attacking intent and vision.

    It will be interesting to see Bob skinstad play again.

    I thought he played pretty well in the WP XV vs World XV in a crackerjack of a game last year. (*you remember THAT pop pass right? *).

    I don't know why but I hope he proves a lot of people wrong and shows that he has matured in comparison to the person he was before, and also that he manages to play like a king again.
