The Bulls have secured a home playoff in the United Rugby Championship and they still have a chance of finishing the group stage at the top of the log.

On Saturday the Bulls moved back up to second on the log following a 56-35 win against the Benetton at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

Ulster's 23-21 win against Leinster in Belfast ensure the team from the capital city are one point ahead of the Dubliners going into the final round.

Over at Ellis Park, the Lions kept their playoff chances alive with a 44-21 against Franco Smith's Glasgow Warriors. The Lions are in nineth on 49 points, which is the same as Benetton, going into the final round.

The Stormers in turn just about book their place in the knockout rounds with a 16-12 win against the ever-difficult Connacht in Galway.

The Sharks were outmuscled with a 36-14 defeat to Cardiff at Kings' Park in Durban, and they have no way of making the playoffs, but their focus is on next week's EPCR Challenge Cup final against Gloucester at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
