It’s the final that everybody was hoping for as Old Selbornians battle it out with Police in a dream Flya Tournament finale. While on the under card of the tourney, Breakers will go head to head with Swallows.
Its battle royal for this lucrative tournament that have a breakdown of prizes up to R100 000-00. The curtain will come down on two of the best performing sides in Border rugby with Old Boys already having one over their rivals by taking the league.
Both teams had the better of their opponents in last week’s semi-finals. Police had to dig deep in disposing a spirited Buffalo’s 13-6. Old Selbornians had an easy evening in smashing Berlin Tigers 47-8 to set up an intriguing final against their fierce rivals.
Buoyed by claiming a third consecutive Border League crown, Old Boys is revelling in the prospect of making it a double of titles in the space of three weeks. The team have the class, pedigree and have been the dominant force in the region for some time. They have a wealth of experience and taking part in the club champs against the best teams in the country have given them an added advantage. Alistair Alexander and his team will look ahead of this tantalising fixture with clear intentions to capture the title that have eluded them for some time. The team is determined and motivated to go one better than last year under the floodlights of their Nashua Park fortress.
In their way stand Police, defending champs and a team who have dominated this tourney for the last couple of years. Police will go into this blockbuster clash brimming high on confidence. The Bobbies where the only team to beat Old Selbornians in the league, a narrow 8-3 win at Police Park. Police will want to avenge some sort of revenge for their league mishap, finishing second to their crosstown rivals. Packed with household names on the local rugby front, the team will know that nothing but a victory will be enough to please their die hard supporters. With all the material at their disposal, one should feel that the team should bag more titles than their have. Bonga Mntunjani and his teammates will have their work cut out to stop Cody Basson and co in lifting the coveted trophy.
In the undercard match, Swallows will be looking to make it two wins in a row over Breakers. The Mdantsane outfit defeated Breakers in Queenstown and will be hoping for the same result. Both teams ended their league campaigns in contrasting fashion with Breakers taking an unexpected slide on the log while Swallows were picking in form. All are waiting in anticipation of an electrifying atmosphere at Nashua Park.
