Defining weekend in store for Wolves

Worcester News: (4829378) (4829378)

WHEN it comes to season-defining moments, they don't come much bigger than Worcester Wolves' 48-hour date with destiny this weekend.

On Friday night, Paul James' side's British Basketball League title credentials are on the line as they take on fellow contenders Sheffield Sharks at the University Arena looking to close the gap on leaders Newcastle Eagles.

Then, on Sunday, it's the small matter of the Trophy final against Glasgow Rocks at the Commonwealth Arena in Glasgow - Wolves' first major final in the BBL.

In short, this could be the best weekend the club has enjoyed in its 14-year history. By Sunday evening, they could have some silverware in the bag and be well in the hunt for a maiden Championship.

Likewise, all the promise they have shown over the past few months could have counted for little should they find themselves playing catch-up in the title race and return empty-handed from Glasgow.

Whatever happens, it is sure to be dramatic and exciting couple of days.

It is occasions such as this when top-level sport comes into its own. It's why we watch it and, more importantly, why the players work so hard for months on end. To be challenging for major honours at the business stage of the season.

Sunday's final is also a chance for Wolves to show what they are capable of when the heat is on in front of a national audience.

As well as the 6,000 fans that will be packed into the venue, others will be watching via online streaming, while Eurosport will also be showing highlights next Wednesday.

With the Warriors seemingly heading for relegation in rugby union's top-flight, it would also be good to see Worcester in the sporting headlines for the right reasons.

Wolves have done the city proud in that respect so far and here's hoping they can add another illustrious chapter this weekend.
