After a couple of lop-sided games, this one promises to be tough and hard-fought. While the Stormers have been chancing their arms at times this season, the Sharks have been playing a pragmatic sort of game that involves going up the middle and riding roughshod over anyone and anything that gets in their way.
The battle of the loose trios will be the litmus test in this game; whichever one gets on top will do so because the tight five is winning the trench battle, and that means the team will be on the high road.
This could be ugly, or it could be dreary, because both teams will get bogged down into a slugging match up front, mauling and one-off runners all day. For the sake of rugby, I hope the Brumbies fall 20 behind in the first 20 minutes and actually have to play a bit to try and get up. The Kings have played well in the last month or so, but they got it all wrong against the Brumbies — maybe the favourite tag spooked them a bit. Whatever it was, they turned in their worst performance in some time and lost a very winnable match.
They are quite happy to ride roughshod over a passive opponent, and a big score normally results. They should be able to batter the Kings however they play, and a big score should be the result.
