JOHANNESBURG - It's crunch time in the Currie Cup as the last four remaining teams fight for a spot in next weekend's final.

The afternoon begins with the Golden Lions taking on the Sharks at Ellis Park.

Both teams come into the match off the back of impressive victories.

The day starts at 2:30 with second placed Lions hosting the Sharks in what should be an exciting affair.

Johan Ackermann his team is performing so well because the group has been playing alongside each other for some time now.

Then at 5 pm, Western Province will host the Blue Bulls at Newlands.

Meanwhile, Allister Coetzee says his Province players will keep a close eye on Handre Pollard but can't place all of their attention on the young Springbok flyhalf.

He starts at centre instead of his usual position of flyhalf due to Burger Odendaal's injury.

The table toppers take on the Bulls this afternoon looking to secure a home final.

Coetzee says Pollard's a threat no matter what position he plays.
