Johannesburg – If there is one game in the Super 14 that Lions coach Dick Muir would like to win above all others, it is Saturday’s game against the Sharks at Coca-Cola Park.

The Lions are enduring a torturous campaign, but Muir’s agony will dissipate if he can beat his old team.

Nobody realises that more than the Durbanites. That is why they are not coming to Johannesburg with the mindset that they will be collecting easy points.

Muir will do everything in his power to win the game. If it is the only one that the Lions win in the competition, it will be worthwhile for him.

While he still lives in Durban and has legendary status in Natal and Sharks rugby, there is not much love lost between him and the Sharks.

The Sharks’ batteries have been recharged after a week’s rest and captain John Smit’s team would like to cause problems for some of the other teams going forward.

A place in the semi-finals appears to be out of reach, with 12 points separating them from the Stormers, who are in fourth position.

However, victories in their last three games means that the Sharks will prove tough opponents for all comers in their remaining games.
