Ask The Physio: Life on the Injured List

No matter what sport you play, you are bound to pick up an injury somewhere along the way. You are even more likely to do so if you push the limits of your sport and your body. Any professional athlete will tell you that dealing with injuries is part of the sport, and for school sports, things aren't much different.

In our latest foray into the massive weekend clash between Cape giants Diocesan College (Bishops) and Rondebosch Boys' High, we head across Sandown Road to the hallowed halls of "Bosch" where we caught up with skipper Chad Matthews to discuss the impending conclusion of a topsy-turvy season.


The long and arduous school's rugby season here in the Cape is slowly drawing to a close with the traditional matches between Wynberg and SACS and Bishops and Rondebosch dishing up a fitting finale to what has been a long, hard slog for these young men. While SACS face a nigh near impossible task at Lovers' Walk against the giants of the Cape, over at Campground Road things couldn't be closer.

They have always been one of the stronger school rugby sides in KwaZulu-Natal but increasingly Westville Boys has become a force in schools rugby in the province and they are a side who has gradually established themselves at the very top in KZN.  Arguably they are the number 2 side at the moment and on their day are the equal of any side out there.

Green Machine turned Grey.

Touted as one of the best teams to play for Glenwood High, the 2009 season came to an end for the Durban based side as they travelled for the much anticipated encounter against Grey College. After beating a strong Affies side 24-10 earlier this month most would have expected a very close scoreline. However to be beaten 62-3 was a major disappointment.

Frans Malherbe- Leading from the Front



Probably the least glamorous position on the rugby field is in the front row. Yet these players are some of the most important cogs in a rugby wheel. It is one of the reasons the Boks won the recent Lions' series. Dominating up front in the scrums in the first two Tests was the recipe for success, for without this domination, no matter how talented the backline they would not be able to do anything without the clean ball they receive as a result of the hard work of the tight-five.

SA Schools Rugby Captain

So Craven Week has come to an end. The SA Schools Side is now firmly penned down and despite the witherto's and the whyfor's made by many, we at SA Schools Sports have no doubt that all these boys will do our country proud.They say that football is a game watched by hooligans but played by gentlemen, while rugby is a game played by hooligans and watched by gentlemen.

Will Glenwood make Grey Green?



Touted as one of the best teams to play for Glenwood High, the 2009 season comes to a end for some of their most talented players when they take on Grey College on Saturday. To travel on train up to Bloemfontein might not be ones favorite destination but the "Berea Burgers" have one objective and that is to come home with the biggest scalp of all.

Booishai run out winners at Interschools

Paarl Gym were aiming for a record six wins in a row when they faced Booishai in the annual Interschools at Faure Stadium. Many would have tipped Gimmies to do just that as they have had a good season and appeared the stronger side going into the match.
However Paarl Boy's High had been quietly going about their preparation and were not prepared to roll over and play dead
