Rugby update

2010-05-22 00:00

THERE are some tough matches ahead with only three Saturdays remaining in the KZN rugby calendar. The match that will draw most attention is at Westville, who will be hosting Maritzburg College.

It is never easy at Westville, and it is their Old Boys’ day, so it will add to the difficulty for College, but they will be mindful of how they lost the game 0-3 last year on their home ground and in front of their Old Boys.

The improvement seen by College recently will give them confidence and Westville will undoubtedly be on their guard.

Kearsney is a side that has blown hot and cold and they will need to be at their best when they meet the continually improving St Charles.

KES lost two weeks ago on their home ground against College (14-26), and last week College beat Hilton 26-3. On this result it looks to be an even contest between Hilton and KES.

Visitors St Johns have not had an easy season with a succession of losses, but last Saturday they unexpectedly beat St Stithians. They play Michaelhouse, who have also lost more than they have won, but they do have two scalps, Westville and Maritzburg College, which shows that they can beat the best. This game could be close.

The game at Northwood, who are to host DHS, could also be a very close encounter.

Glenwood will be pleased that they have a relatively easy match against George Campbell, as they have had some tough fixtures to date.

Fixtures (home side first): Westville vs Maritzburg College; Kearsney vs St Charles; Hilton vs KES; Michaelhouse vs St Johns; Northwood vs DHS; Glenwood vs George Campbell; Carter vs Hillcrest; Voortrekker vs Port Natal; Howick vs Wartburg; Thomas More vs Port Shepstone; New Forest vs Kloof; Clifton vs Pinetown; Treverton vs Ladysmith; Grantleigh vs Pongola; Glenwood II vs Richardsbaai; Glenwood III vs Empangeni

Other fixtures (venue unknown): Scottburgh vs Crawford LL; DNC vs Crawford NC; Kingsway vs Suidnatal; Kuswag vs Werda; Amanzimtoti vs Durban Academy; Eshowe vs Felixton
