The sun's direction will be the key determinant of which side is better for taking pictures. Apparently, it's better to shoot facing the supreme court in the morning and shoot facing the Esplanade park in the afternoon to avoid backlit.
Will be there at least a bit on Saturday, and for half a day on Sunday. See yall there! (look for a tall guy with a 400D/70-200 f4 )
With a short lens (less than 300mm equivalent field of view on 35mm format), you can only capture the near actions and you are left with shooting those actions at the sideline or touchline near to you. In such cases, positioning is very crucial. If one team is much stronger than the other (which often happens in ealier rounds) and you position yourself at the touchline of the stronger team, you're likely to get nothing as the weaker team cannot get pass to the last third of the stronger team. Even if you're on the touchline of the right team, the attack may be on the other side of the poles (i.e. right side when you're on the left side of touchline or left side when you're on the right side of touchline).
A 70-300mm is barely sufficient on a 1.5x crop factor camera.
A bigma 50-500mm is ideal for actions at various distances.
BTW, I will be shooting with a prosumer camera.
As usual, I'm there more for the sports actions than photography. ..... and believe me, there will be many pretty young things around (assuming this year is the same as the past).

It did rain in the morning, now the sun is power...i saw more photographers arriving just after lunchtime. But had cover a friend's halloween party this evening, and my slippers gave way due to the muddy conditions.
Will share pix much later, still have tomorrow rugby day too. Heh. Boots this time. :P
