The Cell C Sharks are set to throw everything but the kitchen sink at the Vodacom Bulls in Saturday's Rainbow Cup South Africa match in Durban. 
The KwaZulu-Natal franchise go into the final round of group stage action needing a big win to replace the Bulls at the top of the table and subsequently book their spot in the grand final set to take place in Treviso, Italy on June 19.

A 33-21 bonus point win over the Emirates Lions in Johannesburg last weekend kept the Sharks' slim hopes of qualifying for the final alive, but they will need not only a comprehensive winning margin against the Bulls but also deny them a bonus point of their own. 
In short, the Sharks need to score four tries, win by more than seven points, while ensuring that the Bulls don't also cross for four tries. 
An uphill task if there ever was one. The Bulls go into Saturday's match four-points clear atop the Rainbow Cup standings after a last-gasp 31-27 win over the DHL Stormers. 
Ruan Nortje scored with the last move of the game to keep the Bulls' unbeaten home record intact. 
“I always believed we would win as this is a special team and we have done this time and time again. This was no fluke,” said Bulls head coach Jake White in the aftermath. 
“You don’t want to win games like that, but in saying that, I am really, really proud. The boys stuck at it. There were a lot of opportunities." 
The Bulls beat the Sharks 43-9 in the reverse fixture at Loftus Versfeld Stadium last month.
