These two teams have met in the Final on seven occasions. On Saturday their showdown is just about getting into the play-offs, but it remains a massive game.

The Sharks can, with a win, still secure the top spot on the standings – although they require some assistance from the Cheetahs.

However, Western Province is playing for their survival in the competition.
