Rugby Premiership to hold season finale

THE Cambodian Federation of Rugby (CFR) will hold its ninth annual finals day for its domestic rugby competition this Sunday, at Phnom Penh's Old Stadium.

Action gets under way at 9am with semifinals in the boy's junior divisions and in the women's division.

The finals start at 1pm which include deciders of the boy's under 13, under 15, under 17, under 20 age groups and two women's divisions.

The day caps off at 4 pm with the championship match of the Cambodian Rugby Premiership, featuring PSE Garudas - the top team in the Premiership - against second-placed Stade Khmer. The two teams have met twice during the regular season, with the Garudas winning both encounters, 27-0 and 20-13.

"I think it will be a good match," said Garuda captain Pich Ratana. "They [Stade Khmer] gave us a difficult game the last time."

The match will feature fifteen players - twelve for Garudas and three for Stade Khmer - who played with the Cambodian National Rugby Team last week in Laos.

A total of 220 players from ages 10 and up participated in the domestic rugby competition this season, according to CFR Secretary General Philippe Monnin.

Admission to all matches is free.
