Affies didn't play this weekend which gave their players what many would say was a well earned break after playing several gruelling matches on the trot. Even though this was apparently not Affies choice they did get the opportunity to recharge the batteries for a demanding season that lies ahead.

Northwood vs Maritzburg College – cracker of a hockey match in store. The success of the Northwood first hockey team in winning 12 matches from 12 starts is a fantastic achievement and can be put down in large part to the school’s appointment a few years ago of Darryn Gallagher as director of hockey.

Cricket: Rankings for 12 March, 2013

A thumping victory by Rondebosch over Bishops sees them edge ever closer to the number one spot as the season draws to an end and it underlines the depth of the ‘Bosch to be competing at the very top for the past three years.

Published in Cricket

For many teams it was the first match of the season but already there are some positive signs that the coaches and players have put in some serious off season training with some spectacular rugby predicted for the season.

Although the usual suspects continue to show why they are at the very top of school rugby it is encouraging to see the traditionally small teams stepping up and we can expect not a few surprises this season.

Lwandiswa Zuma - The Next Ntini?

Fourth former Lwandiswa Zuma picked up five wickets for five runs in a match-winning spell for Maritzburg College at the St David’s Twenty20 Festival back in 2012 in Johannesburg to signal that he means business.

Published in KZN

Maritzburg College, which is KwaZulu-Natal’s oldest boys' school and is celebrating its 150th birthday in 2013, is pleased to be able to release the details of its upcoming 150th Winter Sports Festival.

150The overall festival, which is to be held over the entire Easter school holidays, incorporates three stand-alone tournaments, namely –

o the Maritzburg College 150th Rugby Festival (29 March to 3 April), at which 10 First XVs from leading rugby-playing schools will be playing;

 

o the Nomads Hockey Festival (29 March to 1 April), which is a long-established annual festival for 12 of South Africa's leading First XIs; and

 

o the annual Husqvarna Skonk Nicholson Rugby Festival (4 April to 6 April), at which eight teams will each be contesting matches in the U14 and U16 age-groups.

 

The Maritzburg College 150th Winter Sports Festival is but one of 30 special events that are part of the school’s year-long sesquicentennial celebrations, which have been five years in the planning.

The highlight of the Winter Sports Festival will undoubtedly be the (Open) rugby festival, which will feature many of the top rugby-playing schools in the country. Top of the bill are Pretoria rugby powerhouses, Affies, and they are joined by luminaries of the oval ball-game such as Hoërskool Monument (Monnas) from Krugersdorp, Grey High School (PE), Queens College (Queenstown), Dale College (King Williamstown), Rondebosch Boys’ High School (Cape Town), rising power Hoërskool Noord-Kaap (Kimberley), Jeppe High School for Boys (Johannesburg) and long-standing local rivals Durban High School.

The hosts themselves of course enjoy an enviable rugby pedigree that includes over 20 rugby internationals – including both South Africa’s Rugby World Cup-winning flyhaves (Joel Stransky and Butch James), and that pedigree will be sorely tested in the festival, when they face Grey High School on Saturday 30 March, Noord-Kaap on Monday 1 April and Queens College on Wednesday 3 April, in the final match of the festival. All the matches will be played on the school’s main field, Goldstone’s.

A huge beer garden will be provided, there will be jumping castles for children, and vendors will be on hand to ply their wares in what is anticipated to be a celebratory, carnival-like atmosphere. Entrance will be R10 per person, and secure parking will be provided on the school’s lower fields, off College Road.

The Nomads Hockey Festival will be held at the same time as the 150th Rugby Festival, albeit over one less day. It is the oldest and most prestigious schools’ hockey festival in the country, and will see the very best schoolboy hockey players from SA in action. The organisers of the festival are delighted to announce that Millfield, which is arguably the top sports school in the UK, will be attending, and their match against the host school, with whom they have a fierce rivalry in cricket and hockey – is sure to be a highlight.

Not only will Maritzburg College be hosting two premier Easter festivals but, in somewhat of a coup, they will a month later be putting on the invite-only Wildeklawer Rugby Festival (1-4 May), which will allow KZN-based rugby supporters to enjoy the very best schoolboy rugby, featuring the likes of Grey College (Bloemfontein), Paarl Roos Gymnasium (Stellenbosch) and the Paarl powerhouses of Paarl Boys’ High and Paarl Gymnasium.

Cricket: Rankings for 24th February, 2013

There was considerable movement on the table over the past week as most of the teams were engaged in numerous matches in a short space of time which tested the depth of the various sides.

wkWaterkloof who were the finalists against Rondebosch in the Coke T20 Challenge cling on to the top spot although the gap between them and the rest has shrunk appreciably. Affies take the second best slot thanks to a win against Waterkloof and a good showing during the Independent Schools Festival. Rondebosch who are now the champions of the T20 format, deservedly get back into the top three and had it not been for their surprise loss against St.Andrew’s Bloem they could have been challenging for the No.1 position.

One of the big movers is St.Andrew’s College who are now on a seven match winning streak and they burst into the Top 10 after enjoying an excellent week which included a stunning nine wicket win over Affies. St.Alban’s also have put together some good results and went undefeated at the Independent School’s Festival . Paul Roos Gym also break into the Top 10 after stretching their winning streak to four matches which has included brushing aside Wynberg twice.

The equation used for these rankings are not based purely on a win/loss ratio and in order to grade the various wins against stronger or less stronger teams a formula has been used to give as realistic evaluation of the team’s form. Click here to see how the rankings are worked out.

Maritzburg College takes honours at the Unlimited Dusi 2013

MC DUSI TEAM1Maritzburg College has won the Unlimited Dusi Schools Trophy proving once again that they are undeniably the top canoeing school in South Africa. Travis Wilson was the first U18 paddler to finish at Blue Lagoon placing 19th overall, a great result considering that this was hailed as the most competitive Dusi ever with 9 former winners contesting the race. Travis also beat the junior record by just under 9 minutes. Damon Stamp placed second and Travis’ twin brother Tyler placed third in the U18 category.

In celebration of their 150th birthday, College also had a special batch made up of current pupils, staff, Old Collegians and friends of College. The school has had a long and rich history with the Dusi Canoe Marathon. A total of 7 Old Collegians have, between them, won the Dusi 19 times in both the K1 and K2 categories. College boys consistently top the U18 category. The Dusi Canoe Marathon has been a very import part of canoeing at Maritzburg College and has without a doubt been the driving force behind the continued growth of the school’s canoe club.

Graeme “Gudjie” Dixon who matriculated in 1976 completed his 39th consecutive Dusi, an amazing feat and one of the all-time greats of College Canoeing.

Cricket: Rankings for 16th February 2013

After another full week of cricket it is still Waterkloof you remain unbeaten and are firmly entrenched at the top of the table although several interesting results have caused some movement in both directions.

Kingswood11Wynberg have tumbled down the table after suffering what must be viewed as a surprise defeat by the rapidly improving Paul Roos side who outplayed Wynberg to record a comprehensive five wicket victory. Wynberg are now grimly fighting to stay in the top ten and the win has rocketed PRG into the top 20.

Kingswood has also enjoyed a good week after thrashing Muir College and has managed to punch their way to the top half of the rankings. KZN powerhouse Westville, after a somewhat indifferent start to the season seem to be back to full strength now and they have made up some ground to get back into the top 10 after a welcomed win over Northwood who they beat by six wickets. This now extends their winning streak to seven matches as they look to forget their poor early season tour to the Cape.

Jeppe Boy’s continue to impress as they took care of business against the young Pretoria Boy’s outfit who are yet to show the form of last year but the experience will no doubt forge them into a stronger team in the matches ahead.

Cricket: How are the rankings worked out?

 

So how are the rankings worked out? In consultation with a panel of analysts and statisticians a formula was agreed upon which would allow as realistic a representation of a team’s current form as possible. In essence the formula works as follows:

At the start of the year teams are “seeded” based on how they finished last season. They are seeded from 10 to 1 with 10 going to the teams that are judged the strongest. (This seeding is adjusted after the first term and at the end of the year depending on how well the teams finish.)

Points are awarded for “Win”, drawn matches and teams are also awarded “Bonus Points”. The “bonus points” are awarded depending on the margin of victory that has been obtained. 10 bonus points are given for a 10 wicket win and a 100 or more runs win, 9 bonus points for a 9 wicket win and 90 run win etc.

However in order to grade the win the particular “seeding” of each team plays a part. For example: Paarl Boy’s (seeded 9) beat Pinelands (seeded 7) by 100 runs. Paarl Boys are therefore awarded points for the win, however instead of receiving 10 bonus points for winning by 100 runs, they get 10 points x 0.7 (Pineland’s seeding of 7) = 7 bonus points. If Pinelands were seeded 6 the bonus points for Paarl Boy’s would be 10 x 0.6 = 6 bonus points. This helps to grade the win which was against a weaker team and therefore Paarl Boy’s do not get the full allotment of 10 points. However the converse is also true. If Pinelands (seeded 7) beat Paarl Boy’s by 100 runs, their bonus points would be 13 because they beat a team that was seeded 10. The weaker team is therefore rewarded for beating a higher seeded team.

The win points and bonus points are divided by the matches played to give an average which ultimately ranks the team. Statistics of course only can tell half the story although we do believe that having a quantitive formula and not just relying on a “Win ratio” model is a fairer reflection of the strength of teams.

We are continually looking to improve and tweak the formula and welcome your input. Thank you to the literally hundreds of emails from players, coaches and fans and your unending suggestions, your support and interest is greatly appreciated.

Rugby: The Kriel Twins- Jesse & Dan

This is not another article about Jesse Kriel. It’s not an opportunity to comment on his incomparable conditioning, increasingly daunting reputation or startling performances at Craven Week. This is the story of the Kriel twins and a reminder that in the increasingly brutal world of modern-day rugby, unfortunate circumstances sometimes write their own scripts.
