The first-ever reunion of the once top local rugby club, Old Collegians Rugby & Football Club was held recently at Barkly Street Theatre in Uitenhage. Driving this “OC” or also referred to as “Red Socks” event were former captain, eighth man and EP player Calvin van Appel and team mate Leon Ferreira who also played for EP. The club was established during 1928 and an old dirt track near the railway station, was used as their initial rugby field. During the 1990s, Old Collegians and Swifts Rugby Club amalgamated becoming the Uitenhage Rugby Club.
