Hurting Michaelhouse to face Kearsney

2013-05-04 00:00

WHILE most of the excitement is at Goldstones today, there are the regular Saturday fixtures amongst KZN schools.

A trip to Kearsney could be rewarding as they will be hosting Michaelhouse. The latter will be hurting after their loss against Hilton last week while Kearsney are considered the top side in the province at present. They will undoubtedly make it difficult for the midland’s team.

Hilton will likely have a big win against St Charles if they can raise their game to the same standard as last Saturday.

Voortrekker have a big game on their hands when they host Weston. Vories are sure to have studied the televised game where Weston had a comprehensive win against Treverton last week and worked on strategies to prevent the opposing pack from dominating.

Westville, away to KES in Johannesburg, could have an easier match than normal as their opponents have not had a good start to the season. Home support may help them but it will be an upset if Westville does not win.

The other game in Johannesburg will be more tightly contested between DHS and home side Parktown. The latter has had some big defeats and it could be an opportunity for DHS to gain some confidence.

Glenwood and Maritzburg College are both playing at the Wildeklawer Festival at College. Glenwood play against Paarl BHS in what could be a tough encounter for the locals.

College against Framesby should be a win to College but they have been guilty of only playing their better rugby in the second half, so they will need to step up to the plate early on in the match.


Kearsney v Michaelhouse; St Charles v Hilton; Voortrekker v Weston; KES v Westville; Parktown v DHS; Glenwood v Paarl BHS (at College); M College v Framesby; Carter v Treverton; Howick v Wartburg; Thomas More v Kloof; St Henrys v Pinetown; Greytown v Richardsbaai; Hilton III v Clifton

George Campbell v Northwood has been postponed to May 15.
