The final matches of the round-robin stage of Super League B couldn’t have been set up better.
In the build-up to last weekend, before news broke that the referees were going on strike, I highlighted the battle for the final top six spots.
But it is in Paarl waar die ding nou behoorlik gaan ruk on Saturday.
At the foot of the SLB standings we have Rangers, who need a miracle if they want to escape automatic relegation to Super League C.
Not only will they have to beat All Saints by a big margin away from home, but they will also hope for a draw between the other two relegation candidates Young Peoples and Macassar.
With the bottom two clubs going down automatically, the fight is on for the position third from last. That will earn you a chance to play in the promotion/relegation playoff.
As it stands, Young Peoples currently occupy that position, with Saturday’s visitors Macassar second from bottom.
With two points separating the teams, the match is a shootout for SLB safety.
Both teams have only tasted success twice this year, with Peoples’s win over Vineyards at the beginning of last month being their second win.
Macassar, meanwhile, beat Rangers on the same day, meaning both teams will not only be egged on by still having a fighting chance of staying in the league, but will also be uitgehonger for a win.
