M1. Scotland v France
These teams met in Paris last weekend and France were dominant. Under a new coach they looked well drilled and took advantage of Scotland who sent out a side without some of their best players. Scotland should send out a stronger team while France may experiment with others. Expect the margin to be more narrow.
M2. Griquas v Lions XV
If Griquas win this they top the Currie Cup log and ensure they host a Semi-Final, winning that, a Final. The Lions would love a win to seal their place in the last four too. There is plenty to play for. Griquas are hard to beat at home no matter their form. They can win again.
M3. England v Ireland
England were beaten by Wales last weekend but that may not have taken the wind out of their sails. Neither would a loss here. Ireland are a very good team but they haven't played a warmup match yet. England are less rusty and could win.
M4. Free State Cheetahs XV v Western Province
The Cheetahs have looked good this season and should go in as favourites. A win would seal the other home Semi-Final. Western Province have had a tough time. They have played well at times but they will miss out on the last four if they lose this match. Play wide.
M5. Bulls v Sharks XV
The Bulls might be completely out of contention for the last four by the time this match kicks off. The Sharks need a bit more to ensure they qualify for the knockout stages. With that in mind, the Sharks could escape with a narrow win.
