Pontypridd have their destiny firmly in their own hands as they prepare for the last league fixture of the season.
A straight win against Llandovery will ensure Ponty finish top of the Premiership table. The climax to the winter's campaign takes place at Sardis Road on Saturday (KO 2:30pm).
Llandovery, themselves one of the form teams of the season have much to play for, as a bonus point win would clinch their passage to the Play-Off semi finals at Ponty's expense.
There are all sorts of mathematical permutations involving a drawn game, try and bonus points added on that could affect the status of the four top teams in the league - Llanelli, Aberavon, Pontypridd and Llandovery - who are still aspiring to glory.
The bottom line is that Pontypridd know what they have to do, as difficult a challenge as it entails, to battle to a home win over their worthy opponents.
