“The clean sweep is certainly a factor,” Stormers head coach John Dobson told reporters as the team prepare to face the Sharks.

“It could be something deep in their [players’] minds and it might cause them to chase a kick harder or something like that.

“However. we are very much a team defined by ourselves.”

“We played the Sharks four weeks ago but there was only one game in between [now and then] and therefore we can’t change much of our plan. We just have to be better.

“We can’t think about breaking a home winning streak, Ulster that is on our heels [on the log] or a clean sweep. It’s just about us being better.

Neil Powell says that the Sharks are out to put right their poor performance against the Stormers at home.

“We felt like we could have done better leading up to that Stormers game and we had a good week this week, so hopefully we will have a better performance since when we played them in Durban,” Powell said.

“We know they are a difficult team at home, they are the in-form team and they play good rugby, so it will take a good performance from us to give them a run for their money.

“If we implement our plan, hopefully, we can get success out of this game.”
