On Saturday evening, the Jozi Stars tackle the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Wanderers Stadium at 7pm in a furious contest before the weekend concludes with two explosive fixtures – the Durban Heat hosting the Cape Town Blitz at Kingsmead Stadium (11:30am) and the Paarl Rocks padding up against the Tshwane Spartans at Boland Park (3:30pm).
