Rugby: Easter Festival at Kearsney College 2018

The festival takes place over three play days: Thursday 29th March, Saturday 31st and Monday 2nd April. It promises exciting running rugby, set in a family environment on the Kearsney College campus at Botha’s Hill, between Durban and Pietermaritzburg.



Thousands of supporters from KZN and further afield will flock to Kearsney’s beautiful campus over the Easter weekend to savour the spectacle of running rugby, to enjoy the special family atmosphere on their beautiful campus and to experience the fun and excitement of the festival.


Three local KwaZulu-Natal teams will participate this year: Glenwood High School, Durban High School and hosts Kearsney College. They will join HTS Middelburg, Welkom Gimnasium, Pretoria Boys High and Hoërskool Noord-Kaap.

Kicking off play each day will be a match between primary school teams.  Participating sides are Highbury Preparatory, Hillcrest Senior Primary, Umhlali Prep and the u13 KZN Ibutho/Mark Godefroydevelopment team.


Once again Standard Bank will be the festival’s headline sponsor, the bank has partnered with Kearsney in a multi-year deal which is testimony to the stature and prestige of the festival. 

SimphiweKhoza, KZN head of retail banking at Standard Bank, said they looked forward to seeing young sportsmen displaying the integral characteristics necessary to reach personal, group and career goals, these characteristics are the same as those Standard Bank strove to uphold.

Festival organiser Mouton Bezuidenhout is delighted with the strength and quality of teams taking part this year, ensuring that the festival continued as an important event for supporters of top-class schoolboy rugby, whilst also providing the obvious benefits to the game in the province. With another incredible line-up of talent participating at this year’s festival,  supporters will definitely not be disappointed.  This is schoolboy rugby at its very best!


Numerous food outlets, a refreshment tent and KidZone will ensure spectators can enjoy a fun-filled family-orientated Easter weekend.  Entry is R25 per person with ample parking available.
