There are also numerous head to head encounters that make the clash even more intriguing. In the pack there are two in-form second rowers in Chris Vui and Franco Mostert while Steven Luatua and Ruan Ackermann could certainly steal the show.

Bristol welcome Luke Morahan returns from injury for Bristol and goes head to head with the impressive Ollie Thorley. Former Harlequin Karl Dickson will take the whistle for the clash that will be on BT Sport and NBC Sport in the US.

Lions v Bulls - Saturday at 1:05pm (UK Time)

There are numerous derbies in Super Rugby this weekend but our pick of the Super Rugby fixtures to watch is the Trans-Jukskei derby between the Lions at Ellis Park.

The Lions have been the in-form South African Super Rugby side over the past three seasons while the Bulls are the most successful South African side in the competition's history. 

Both sides will be looking to bounce back from round two losses and clear conditions on the Highveld will certainly provide some stellar entertainment. 

Paul Williams will referee the clash that will be on ESPN, Fox Sports, Sky Sports NZ, Sky Sports Arena and Supersport. 

Scarlets v Munster - Saturday at 5:00pm (UK Time)

A cracking clash at Parc Y Scarlets this weekend with Scarlets welcoming Conference A leaders Munster.
