The Sharks have certainly come unstuck and might not even make the semis if this slide continues. Stormers are looking good but now they've lost Schalk Burger for the rest of the competition as well as Chavanga (the wing) and Moller (the tighthead prop) and possibly Tony Brown.

It really is going to go down to the wire. Except for the Crusaders of course.
the top four sides at the end of the comp:

Crusaders - 52 pts
Waratahs - 43 pts
Sharks - 42 pts
Hurricanes 41 pts

this weekend, Waratahs vs Sharks and Crusaders vs Hurricanes. I'm hoping the 'Tahs and the 'Canes both get up, although common sense says the Crusaders will win. However, they lost to the Highlanders last week, so maybe another upset is in the works.

I'm looking forward to both games.

On a side note, one of the most fiercely contested Rugby League matches, State of Origin 1, finished less than an our ago. I'm proud to say that NSW got up there too.

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Vamanos! Vamanos!
