The Bulls could unseat the pace-setting Chiefs on the Super 14 log should they beat them in their clash at Loftus tomorrow. Kickoff is at 5.10pm.

Both teams have been playing quality rugby of late and are fancied to qualify for the semifinals.

The New Zealand outfit leads the pack with 31 points from nine games while the hosts are third with 29 points from the same number of matches.

The Sharks, who are second, have 31 points from 10 games and have a bye this weekend.

With home advantage, the Bulls are tipped to secure a win with a bonus point and boost their chances of a home semifinal.

The return of Victor Matfieldwill add firepower to the Bulls.

Other games: Today - Highlanders v Stormers (Dunedin); Western Force v Lions (Perth).

Tomorrow - Hurricanes v Brumbies (Wellington); Blues v Reds (North Harbour).
