Not only do the Capetonians stand a chance of overtaking the Bulls on the log, they are gunning for their fourth straight win, and are still smarting from the earlier 28-12 loss at Loftus.
“Matches between the Stormers and the Bulls are always hard-fought and memorable encounters,” said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee, right.
“Both teams have come off a break and both sides have had players playing for the Springboks, but you don’t have to ask any player twice to get himself up for a game of this nature.”
Bulls coach Frans Ludeke believes they should keep the faith by still dreaming about that play-off spot.
The Bulls have, however, failed to win away from home this year and will need a big game from new Bok pivot Handre Pollard.
“It is a massive challenge. Making the play-offs was one of our clear targets, and we need a very positive performance at Newlands to make it happen,” said Ludeke.
