Bamburi Rugby Super Series Match Day Five: The Grand Finale

After five gruelling rounds, the battle for the Bamburi Rugby Super
Series comes down to 80 minutes on Match Day 5.

Former champions Rhinos face off against the Buffaloes at 1530hrs
East African Time on Saturday afternoon at the RFUEA to fight for the
2009 BRSS title.

To borrow but one sporting cliché, the form guide goes out the window.

Nothing else but what happens on Saturday afternoon matters. Not the
star players, not the coaches, not the best tries,tackles, dummies and
drop goals of the season, nor the best fans. Nothing but the final
result. And ultimately, this is why we are rugby fans.

In the words of a popular Australian rugby league commentator Phil
Gould, "the regular season is a Mickey Mouse competition. The only
thing that matters is winning trophies"

May the best team win.
