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.
