Game of the Week: Sharks vs. Stormers

Last year the Stormers tore through the South African conference and the rest of Super Rugby to finish with the best record in the competition. Things seemed in place for the team to bring a championship to the Newlands until the Sharks came into Cape Town and emerged with a 26-19 upset win in the playoff semi-finals. The Sharks went on to lose to the Chiefs in the final. In the offseason both teams have re-tooled in order to either get over last year's hump or to get revenge for a loss. The Stormers head into the match already needing a win after their loss to the Bulls last week. A loss against the Sharks would give them as many losses as they had all last season. From the Sharks point of view, a win over the Stormers would take them to 2-0 and room over the Stormers in the table. It promises to be an exciting, must watch match.
