The Sharks will be favourites for this encounter at Kings Park in Durban but they know that the Cheetahs are a side that can not be underestimated.
The tournament's pacesetters have impressed so far but barring a draw, one of these sides will lose their unbeaten record in Cape Town on Saturday.
There will be plenty at stake when the Bulls host the Kings in Pretoria as both sides are desperate to break their ducks in the points standings.
Blue Bulls coach Frans Ludeke has made seven changes to his starting XV for Saturday's clash with the Eastern Province Kings in Pretoria.
