St Charles have the edge over Glenwood, but need to brush up fielding

2011-03-12 00:00

IN the not-too-distant past, there was a clear-cut division between the summer sports and the winter ones, but no longer. Today cricket, rugby and hockey matches take place at the same time.

Some schools on the cricket fixtures miscalculated and will be playing in the Wartburg Sports Festival.

The major cricket match is on Dixon­’s at Glenwood where St Charles will be their opponents. St Charles do have a win against Glenwood this term, in a Sunfoil Night league fixture. This should give them some confidence, but they also need to improve their fielding to ensure that they put pressure on the talented Glenwood batting top order.

The only other two games that are taking place are Pinetown against Amanzimtoti and Treverton against Felixton. On results posted thus far both home teams should record wins.

There are eight known rugby fixtures, together with the 10 matches at the Wartburg Festival (previewed in yesterday’s Witness). A number of the other major schools will be having trials today before the official start of the season next Saturday.

There should be a comparatively big crowd at Hilton where they are hosting Northwood. Northwood cricket has shown an upturn in their fortunes and although slight, it will probably also be evident in their rugby and hockey. KZN does need to have at least 10 strong rugby-playing schools.

Hilton, under the tutelage of long-serving coach Tony Richter, should again be among the better schools in the province. Northwood won the night series, which had second-tier teams playing, but they will have had the opportunity of working together over a number of matches, which will be to their advantage.

Westville travel to Zululand where the first team will play Richardsbaai and the second team play Empangeni. Kearsney first team play George Campbell and their second’s play Clifton. The other three matches are Voortrekker against Kuswag, Suid-Natal against Hillcrest and Port Natal against Durban Akademie.
