MBABANE – It remains about pride for Royal Eswatini Police Service (REPS) Pool Club ahead of their grand closing top notch clash with Way Inn.

Crowned champions last weekend after humiliating Ludzeludze II with a 13-3 margin and amassed four points for the bonus win; they took things beyond their chasers Way Inn and Correctional Services. REPS had to lose for the title race to go down to the wire. However, losing to their hoodoo team, Figaredo the other week meant they had to perform to their best against the rookies this past Saturday. The Manzini Regional Pool Association (MRPA) had been aware that a win for REPS would end the title race and confirm the police side as consecutive champions having won it last season as well. They are now eight points clear with just one game to spare despite both Way Inn and Correctional Services also winning their matches. So, for REPS the grand closing tie with Way Inn, is a formality. However, given the rivalry between the two teams, the police team will be all out to win it, while for the latter, it’s a match with everything to play for.


The battle for the second spot is still very much on and they only need to beat the REPS and then hope Correctional Services who are second in the standings on better frame difference, slip up. At least three teams are up for the second spot as Manzini Pool Club (MPC) also have 73 points, just one behind Way Inn and Correctional Services. The latter take on Manzini Masters in the grand closing on Sunday. “Congratulations to REPS! With these achievements you are giving us the chance to believe in ourselves, we appreciate you for this as it will serve as a great legacy for the coming generations. We shall tell everyone your story, and make them understand that you are the best fighters in the region and probably in the entire country. Winning is not easy, you want to win; your opponent wants to win too; the battle will be won by the most diligent between the two of you. You were disciplined, diligent and hardworking, so the victory actually belongs to you. Congratulations again,” said MRPA Secretary Musa Dlamini as they presented the trophy to the police team.
