DESPATCH will be chasing victory in their final Grand Challenge rugby match against Windvogel at Windvogel on Saturday as they bid to overtake PE SAPS on the log.
SAPS have completed their programme and they sit on 55 points, with Despatch their only rivals for the title. The Despatch side are on 51 points, but have a far superior points difference to the policemen so all they need is four points from this final game at Windvogel to retain the title.
In fact, given the fact that Windvogel only have three wins to their credit this season, you would expect Despatch to be strong enough to claim a bonus-point win, but nobody, least of all Despatch, will be taking anything for granted.
Besides their match against Despatch, Windvogel have one more game to play, against NMMU Madibaz.
