CFR rugby matches play out at Mekong Field tomorrow

Stade Khmer take on PSE Garudas tomorrow at the Mekong Field in the semifinal of the Cambodia Federation of Rugby League competition.

The 3pm kick-off will see the winner progress to the April 28 final against defending champions Sisowath Knights.

Stade Khmer clinched a dramatic 35-31 victory over the Garudas in their previous meeting on January 19, winning it by just the odd kicked goal, so tomorrow’s fixture promises to be another engrossing encounter.

At 4:30pm, the Knights will face off with visiting side Saigon in a friendly.

The Cambodian champions were on the receiving end of a heavy defeat last weekend in Ho Chi Minh City, and will look to avenge the loss on home turf against a highly-combative and physical Saigon outfit. Earlier at 2pm, the U15 sides of ASPECA and PSE will have a full dress rehearsal for their league final showdown next month.
