THE PREDICTION

The Sharks beat the Dragons 51-3 last Friday to advance to the play-offs with a game in hand to spare. They and the other South African teams will face off this weekend to use those spare games as the hugely scrappy United Rugby Championship begins to stabilize and the hosts have the most winable game of three against the Lions . The visitors beat Edinburgh 15-9 last Saturday to make it four straight URC wins, but with each of those heading home it will likely be some sort of homecoming on Saturday. The Sharks have won the last three meetings with the Lions by at least eight points and so getting the hosts to cover -7 here seems a fitting decision.
