In terms of form the Sharks have not had the best year. They have played seven matches and they have won four. Four of those matches were at home but they have only won three matches at home this year.
The Sharks look like they are starting to find their game as they have won their last three matches in a row (Cheetahs, Chiefs and the Force). They lead the South African Conference.
The Crusaders have also not had the best year. They have played six matches and they have won 3 and lost three. Three of their matches were at home and from their three away matches they have won just one (the Highlanders).
The Crusaders will be without Dan Carter for this match and Richie McCaw has been named on the replacements bench. In all the Crusaders have made seven changes for this match and they are not at full strength.
The Sharks will also not be at full strength as Bismarck du Plessis and Frans Steyn are both out on suspension and Pat Lambie captains the team which features a number of returning Springboks.
While the Sharks have won their last three matches their results do not reflect the talent they have in the squad. Discipline has also been a problem for the Sharks in 2015.
