Weather Forecast – Durban

 

Sharks:

 

The Sharks won 1 and lost 3 of their matches on tour. Their only success came at the third time of asking when despite starting as double digit underdogs on the handicap they saw off the Ospreys 27-13 in Swansea. They couldn't follow up in their most recent fixture, a 23-17 defeat to Cardiff back on the 16th October (handicap Sharks +3.5 points).

 

In Round 2 the Sharks were in Glasgow for a game against the Warriors on an artificial surface, they were 26-7 down by half time and the fightback came too late with a final score of 35-24. The Sharks tournament started away to Munster and they went down 42-17 and the pre-match betting handicap in those first 2 matches proved to be very accurate.

 

The Sharks went into the international break with only the Bulls and Zebre below them in the standings and in the ultra tight SA division they are 1 point behind the Lions and 2 shy of the Stormers.

 

Scarlets:

 

The Scarlets have played 5 matches, winning 2 and losing 3, good enough for tenth spot in the standings heading into the international break.

 

They came up against South African opposition in Round 2 when they got the better of the Lions 36-13 and their only other victory was also a home fixture when they beat Benetton 34-28.

 

In other results they were edged out in Edinburgh 26-22 and were thrashed 43-13 by a visiting Munster side and 50-15 away to Leinster.
