Long-time rivals meet in Durban

2013-02-16 00:00

THERE are four top-tier matches today as Maritzburg College and Kearsney take their mid-term break. Two of the matches take place in the Midlands and the other two in Durban.

Long-time rivals and close neighbours, Durban High School and Glenwood, meet on Dixon’s ground at Glenwood. The home side, after suffering from an unexpected loss last Saturday against Northwood, will be keen to rectify matters today.

DHS have been inconsistent in their play this term, but against St Charles showed some glimpses of what they can do. They will want to build on this to produce a good performance and a win, after both games last year were washed out.

St Charles go to Hilton to face one of the in-form sides in the province. This will not be an easy outing for the Harwin Road lads and they will have to be at their best. Hilton have three competent spinners in their side, and given the pace of Lungi Ngidi and the consistency of Matt Lauryssen, they could give the St Charles batsmen a difficult time.

Northwood will be hosting Westville, the second in-form side in the province. After a tentative start to the season, Northwood produced two good performances to beat Michaelhouse and Glenwood.

They will be confident on their home ground, but they must not underestimate their visitors, another good side after leading the rankings in the province in 2012.

Michaelhouse will have disappointed some of their supporters as they have promise but have not delivered. They have missed their SA Schools and SA U19 all-rounder Greg Oldfield. Clifton, the visitors today, have another difficult game. They were beaten comfortably by Westville last weekend, but will hope for a better showing against a brittle Michaelhouse side.


Glenwood vs DHS, Hilton vs St Charles, Northwood vs Westville, Michaelhouse vs Clifton, Treverton vs Thomas More, Kingsway vs George Campbell, Carter vs Voortrekker, Port Shepstone vs Hillcrest, St Henrys vs Crawford LL, Port Natal vs New Forest, Alexandra vs Wartburg.
