Signings start for shot at Super semi

Edinburgh Rugby signings Anton Bresler (lock) and Phil Burleigh (centre) will go head-to-head in Durban, South Africa, tomorrow (Saturday) having been named to start in their respective Sharks and Highlanders sides (kick-off 4pm, live on SkySports).

Dunedin-based Highlanders toppled the Sharks in Durban 34-18 in Round 11 this year, so will head into the match with some much-needed confidence after winning just one of their final five regular season matches after a blistering start to the campaign.

They face a monumental task of overcoming the South African conference leaders on their own patch, who were denied an automatic passage to the semi-finals by Todd Blackadder's Crusaders’ superior points difference.

The winner will progress to the semi-final of the souther-hemisphere's top tier where the Crusaders and Waratahs await.

Subscribers can watch the clash at Kings Park on SkySports 4 from 4pm.
