The Sharks will hunt their third victory in a row and aim to remain in a comfortable position for a quarter-final spot when they host log-leaders Leinster at Kings Park on Saturday, where the visitors will also have their sights set on maintaining their stronghold at the top of the table.

Both teams come off comfortable victories in their last two outings and they will be hoping to build winning momentum as the competition reaches the business end.
While the hosts will have the advantage of being used to the conditions in Durban, Leinster are a consistent outfit that are able to win home and away. They have only lost once against a team from South Africa away from home since 2017, meaning it could be a tight tussle.
“We are very excited about the game against Leinster this weekend,” said Sharks head coach Sean Everitt.
“There has been a hype all week and it has been great to have some sunshine to train in and people are starting to recover from the devastating floods that we had in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
“Although Leinster haven’t brought their top players out, they still have 10 international players in their team, which will be a great challenge for our team. They have been a top side in Europe for some time now and the players are looking forward to the challenge.”
