A BUMPER crowd is expected at the volleyball courts tomorrow (Thursday) to witness some explosive action in the final of the Ralph Reuben Memorial Knockout Tournament (hosted by KwaDukuza Volleyball Association) between Grove End and KSST which is scheduled to get underway at 8pm.

The final was scheduled for last week but had to be postponed due to load shedding throughout KwaDukuza from 8pm to 10pm on Thursday.

Defending champions Grove End are expected to start odds-on favourites for honours and volleyball pundits expect them to take a power of beating in their quest to retain the Ralph Reuben memorial K.O. Cup.

Grove End’s game-plan revolves around power-hitter Vinnie Singh and central attacker Cyprin Tulsiram. Singh and Tulsiram have set the courts alight with an array of bazookas and volleyball enthusiasts can expect a feast yet again on Thursday night.

In the event of the leading duo firing blanks, Grove End will look to seasoned campaigner Satish Bhowanibhik and Neven Baldeo to guide them across the finish line.

KSST have played second fiddle to Grove End since 2014 and with the loss of Damien “Shrek” Peters and Cameron Singh, they have struggled to stay in the race of honours.

But, knockout competitions are noted for producing upsets and KSST should not be ruled out for honours. KSST will be pinning their hopes on Kyle Puckree, Albiston Jaram, Byron Athymoolam and Sherwin Daniels to upset the formbook.

To whet the appetite of volleyball enthusiasts Sunbrook will entertain Randsons in the playoffs for third spot which gets underway at 7pm.

Trophies (sponsored by the Reuben Family of Darnall) will be awarded to the top three finishers after the final on Thursday night.
