Nelson Mandela Bay Giants are sitting at the second spot in the points table with four wins and two defeat in seven outings and would be looking to bounce back against Tshwane Spartans after facing back to back defeats against Paarl Rocks and Durban Heat in the last two games.

With three wins, one defeat and three no results in as many encounters, Tshwane Spartans are sitting third in the ladder and share the same number of points with Nelson Mandela Bay Giants -19 points. They will be having their eyes set on the second spot with a win against Giants.

The Bay Giants need to secure two wins in their last three round-robin games to secure a spot in the playoffs. They missed out on the playoffs by a single point in the last year and will have to try hard to not face the same this season.
