WBHS v College Rugby Report

Last year Westville turned the tables on College by beating the home team 3-0 on their Founders Day, only the second time in College's proud rugby history that this had happened, and it was Westville's turn this weekend to host the Maritzburg team on their very own "Old Boys" day.

We are moving into the business end of the season and the majority of the top teams are enjoying good success as the team get fitter and the hours of training is finally paying off. There were all the usual suspects winning this weekend but a few matches stand out: Westville v Maritzburg College, Monument v Affies, Bishops v Wynberg, Gimmies v SACS and Boishaai v Landou.

National Rugby Preview: 22 May, 2010

For many years, an unfortunate subculture has emerged in schoolboy rugby with nobody able to gauge the source. A despicable brawl stemming from one of the country's most prestigious schools has made the answer abundantly clear. Many parents attempt to live their aspirations through their children, but the manner in which some lose all control is laughable when you put the level of competition in context. Yes, tradition dictates that schoolboy rugby is a source of much pride and passion, but that is what it is; a game of sport between kids. Hopefully this serves as a reminder to such parents that losing all control is a source of great embarrassment for the kids themselves. After all, they have to deal with the repercussions for the next five days in class. Here is a preview of some of the big matches this weekend.

Can there be anything more despicable at a school boy rugby match than seeing parents getting involved in a punch up with schoolboys and other parents. It is definately the type of behaviour you would expect at one of the elite schools in the country, but apparently this is what took place at Hilton College.

Rugby Results 8th May, 2010

There were some huge matches this past weekend which saw some the countries big teams facing each other in what was mostly a great display of rugby. Highlight of the week would see Grey College extend their unbeaten run when they turned over a tough Paarl Boys side 34-12. There was also a battle of the boot in Durban where Glenwood hung on to a 9-6 win against Westville in a nail biter.  Here are some of the results from around the country.

Inevitably, it's one of the first five questions posed at any introduction. Whether at a varsity, in the workplace or at a braai: "What school did you go to?" In the sub-culture of the athletically-inclined South African male, the response will be met with a concoction of envy and judgment with a resumption of the rivalry that once burned inside these men as schoolboys.

Glenwood and Maritzburg College has habitually always been a closely challenged match, and today proved no different. It was a massively physical encounter and both teams displaying a solid resistance and good defense.
