    Pretoria - The Bulls will head to New Zealand on top-of-the-table, and will look at becoming the first South African team to win four touring matches in Vodacom Super Rugby history.

    GALLERY: Past weekend's sporting pictures

    According to the allblacks.com website, wins against the Rebels (41-35) and Waratahs (27-24) may not have been the most comprehensive victories, but against willing opponents the men from Pretoria managed to find just that little bit extra to allow them to register five consecutive triumphs.

    They head to Dunedin to play the faltering Highlanders this coming weekend, before heading to Waikato to play in what promises to be a blockbuster against the Chiefs.

    That Week 14 match will be a serious litmus test for the Chiefs championship credentials, with the Bulls boasting a four-match winning streak, including a 2010 win in Hamilton and the record 61-17 final victory in the 2009 final.

    The Stormers recently set the record for the best South African tour, winning three matches and collecting 13 competition points, while rewriting the defensive records conceding just two tries in four fixtures.

    The Bulls will not take that last ledger, having conceded seven tries on tour so far, and 14 in their last four matches.

    EXPERT OPINION

    “The Sharks as SA’s lone playoffs side for the first time in Super Rugby’s conference format is a fair possibility, warns Rob Houwing.”

    Opinion Poll

    While the Sharks look like sure winners of the SA Super Rugby Conference, the "battle" for the wooden spoon could well develop into a four-team race. Who eventually props up the table?
