Sharks are the pick of SA teams

Definitely the Sharks,

They have the greatest depth of all the SA teams currently playing in Super Rugby, they have very few weaknesses and in my view they have the best South African coach in Jake White.

The Cheetahs will be good, but I don’t see them repeating their Cinderella story of 2013 and making the playoffs.

The Stormers will be good, but ultimately an inability to vary their gameplan, their lack of attacking options, and their tendency to play their players into the ground (and also factoring their lack of depth in key areas) means they will either finish just outside of contention of a playoff spot, or they will be knocked out fairly early in the playoffs.

The Bulls are seriously going to struggle after their player exodus last year, but they with lots of young talent around they won’t embarass themselves.

The Lions on the other hand, will embarass themselves, I predict their usual wooden spoon finish.
