We Discuss Round 6 Of The Super Rugby Unlocked Championship

The DHL Stormers and the Cell C Sharks closed the gap on log leaders Vodacom Bulls to just two points with only one round remaining following their Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked wins over the Toyota Cheetahs and Tafel Lager Griquas respectively.

Bart question the referee's ability to apply rules constantly. The lineouts have become a free-for-all which has resulted in points against the Griquas. The ability of the hookers to throw the ball in straight t the line-outs is also identified as one of South Africa's biggest worries.

We also discuss the coming apart of the Cheetahs, with Frans Steyn having to carry the load of their desperation. The Western Province improved performance by their  "stars" are identified as the main reason for their revival.

Then we discuss the Bulls' chance to still be crowned as the Super Rugby Unlocked champions.
