If last week's Wildeklaaver, Wynberg and Grey College festivals were anything to go by, this weekend will be filled with another round of thrilling schoolboy rugby matches.
Notable battles this weekend include:
Queens College vs Grey High
Both sides have only lost two of their fixtures this season. Queens lost to Jeppe and Kingswood, while Grey High were dominated by Paul Roos and Daniel Pienaar.
Affies vs Grey College
Affies first defeat of the season happened only last weekend against Paarl Boys at the Wildeklawer Festival and the side will be keen not to repeat the experience. They have also won two of the last three fixtures between the sides (they lost 42-31 in 2014) and are looking to make it two consecutive wins this year
We’ve achieved some very good results this season,’ said Affies coach Jaco Koch. ‘The game against Paarl Boys’ didn’t go according to plan, but we are very happy with where we are at the moment. One of our goals is to know before every match that we’ve done everything we can to be fully prepared, and I can honestly say that we’ve achieved that this season … there’s nothing we would have done differently.
‘However, the loss to Paarl Boys’ has definitely influenced our plans for Saturday’s match,’ Koch added. ‘There were errors made under pressure at crucial moments.’
SACS vs Bishops
SACS take on Bishops in the oldest schoolboy rugby contest in SA with the first match between the sides recorded in 1873.
SACS have been victorious in seven of the last 10 fixtures and Bishops will certainly be out to shift SACS' supremacy.
