We are heading into the final round of matches in the regular Currie Cup season and this weekend will determine who plays who in the semi finals. We take a look at the latest outright winner betting.
The most crucial game of the tournament so far saw Western Province maintain their unbeaten record with a 50-28 home win over the Sharks two weeks ago. Province now have 4 points worth of daylight over the Sharks at the top of the standings and given their points difference is 106 superior to their nearest rivals any sort of log points return from their visit to Loftus this weekend will secure top spot.
The Sharks will visit the Griquas this weekend and they are favourites to finish second and also claim a home semi final. However if they do come unstuck in Kimberley they could still be collared by the Bulls or even the Lions.
Coming into the final round the Bulls are third, 1 point clear of the fourth place Lions whilst the fifth Pumas, who are a further 4 points in arrears and host the Lions on Friday, still have some hope of gatecrashing the top 4.
