    Sasol DigiMag Secures Title

    The replacements to Sasol’s team came at the right time and added much needed fire to the backline.

    It was a hard fought game to secure the title of Mpumalanga Champions.
    Sasol triumphed against White River, at Mbobela Stadium, in a game that was equally balanced. The final score was 22 – 20 in Sasol’s favour. The first half did not see Sasol DigiMag play their normal game and they allowed White River to play their own game ,but in true Sasol fashion they consolidated and started to play their own game. Slowly they started to force their game plan on the game. The forwards struggled to find their rhythm in the first half much to the frustration of the backs but that also improved as the game progressed. The lineouts were a pleasure to watch. Sasol managed to secure a number of the opponents’ balls in their lineouts.
    Scrums seemed equally matched with Whit River pushing Sasol upwards in one or two scrums. The backline had their defences tested on numerous occasions as White River tried to break through the line. The replacements to Sasol’s team came at the right time and added much needed fire to the backline. This helped the backline to gain dominance over the opponent’s backline. The conversions were spot on as well as the penalty kicks. Sasol managed to keep the pressure on White River until the final whistle. White River came with a final burst in the final stages of the game, but could not break Sasol’s defences. Sasol faced White River three times this season. Sasol won the first and White River the other two. In the end it all came down to the final. This was the decider for the title and the opportunity to play against the other best clubs in the country during the Gold Cup 2020. Well done Sasol in being victorious in the Phakisa Premier League Championships!
