The MTN Domestic Championship reaches a climax today with the final between hosts the Diamond Eagles and the Titans in Bloemfontein.

The Eagles finished top of the log in the league phase of the competition, with Gauteng's Titans finishing second - booking their places in the semis.

The Eagles beat the Dolphins in Bloemfontein while the Titans overpowered the Cape Cobras in the other semifinal in Centurion last weekend.

Pressure is expected to be on the Eagles to wrest the coveted trophy from defending champions the Titans because of home-ground advantage.

But Titans coach Richard Pybus said they will leave no stone unturned to retain the title. The gates open at 2pm and the final starts at 4.15pm.
