RugbyU: Refreshed Sharks look for points in Lions' den

The Coastal Sharks will be out to extend their Super 15 lead this weekend against the Golden Lions, while the ACT Brumbies aim to stay top of the Australian conference. Jake White's Sharks are on top of both the South African conference and the overall standings with 23 points from six games. The Durban-based outfit are coming off a bye and travel to Johannesburg where they have only lost three times in 10 encounters with the Lions. "We've had a break now and that was very good for us as a team, getting away from things," flanker Marcell Coetzee said.

RugbyU: Brumbies' improved scrum faces Blues test

Australian conference leaders ACT Brumbies' dominant scrum of recent weeks will face a tough test against a seasoned Auckland Blues campaigner in Super Rugby this weekend.
