College-Pretoria highlight of relatively quiet weekend for rugby

2014-04-12 00:00

IT’S a relatively quiet weekend for schoolboy rugby in the province as the major schools prepare for a host of Easter Rugby festivals around the country next week.

Glenwood, unbeaten this season to date in beating Westville and Michaelhouse, enjoyed a good trip to the Grey PE festival in the Easter holidays, where they played two matches, beating Bishops and Jeppe.

The team play three matches at the Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival next week, taking on Dale College, EG Jansen and Framesby and do not play today. The school’s second team travel to Pietermaritzburg to take on Voortrekker’s firsts.

Matches of interest today will be Maritzburg College coming up against the visiting Pretoria Boys’ High School side, kicking off at 2 pm on Goldstone’s, and Westville Boys’ High School hosting DHS at 3 pm.

After a shaky start to the season, losing to Glenwood and Kearsney, Westville found their feet at the Grey PE festival, winning all three matches — against Marlow, Queens College and Louis Botha — and should feel confident against a DHS side that is unpredictable on the day.

Westville also play in the Kearsney Festival and take on Nico Malan, Grey College (Bloemfontein) and Selborne. Today’s match should provide the ideal platform for them to launch into what awaits at Botha’s Hill and a betting man would go for the hosts in this one, although DHS can hold their own and will not lie down easily.

College have beaten Northwood 31-6 to date and their clash with Pretoria Boys’ should be tough and physical.

Other fixtures around Durban see Northwood hosting George Campbell and Port Natal travelling to Clifton College.
