    Cape Town - Saturday’s South African Super Rugby derby between the Stormers and Bulls at Newlands is expected to be a mouth-watering one.

    The Bulls, third in the SA Conference, are two points ahead of the fourth-placed Stormers.

    The men from Pretoria have played one fewer game (9) than their hosts who know that a loss will put paid to any playoff hopes they may have harboured.

    The Bulls beat the Stormers 33-23 in Pretoria earlier in the season, but the tables will be turned on Saturday, leading SA bookmakers have predicted.

    The bookmakers have made the Stormers marginal 1.5-handicap favourites and 3/4 for the outright victory.

    The Bulls can be backed at 11/10 with the draw on offer at 25/1.

    Kick-off is at 15:05 on Saturday.
