After a rather poor showing in their first Test Match in Sri Lanka, the Proteas have it all to do the 2nd match that starts on Friday. Regardless of the result, two South African legends are on the verge of making history. Dale Steyn, having equalled Shaun Pollock's long-standing record, has the chance to surpass his record of 421 wickets. While batsman Hashim Amla is 3 runs shy of reaching 9000 Test runs.

Another local team who did not do so well on their recent travels into Africa is Mamelodi Sundowns, as they succumbed to AS Togo-Port in Togo. So they will be keen to not only put things right in the return leg taking place next week, but also claim some early silverware on Saturday afternoon, as they take on Kaizer Chiefs in the inaugural Shell Helix Cup at FNB Stadium.

With only one final appearance to their name in the history of the Rugby World Cup Sevens, the current reigning HSBC Sevens Series Champions, South Africa, will be looking to make history, as they join all the leading nations in San Francisco for the 3-day event.

Finally, all eyes will be on the Emirates Lions as they fly the flag for South Africa in the Super Rugby Quarter Finals. In their way is a stubborn and extremely tough Jaguares side, who have improved drastically this season. The Sharks also snuck into the playoffs in the last round of league matches. However, their reward is a rather arduous trip to Canterbury to take on tournament favourites the Crusaders, as tough an assignment as you can get.
