WP – 2016 Craven Week champions elect?

7 June, 2016 beet 383

Western Province’s provisional Craven Week / Academy Week squad for is looking very strong. Looking ahead to Craven Week which kicks off on Monday 11 July 2016, Province faces Boland and then probably the winner of Eastern Province/KwaZulu-Natal on Day 3. If (when) they win those two matches, it’s likely that they will meet either the Blue Bulls or the Golden Lions in the final on the Saturday.…

2 Grant Khomo under-16 teams for hosts WP

9 December, 2015 beet 1

It’s an overworked complaint on the blog but does it ever get old? No it doesn’t! It’s just logical that given the depth of schoolboy rugby talent existing in their region, Western Province should have two representative teams at each and every one of the July school holiday provincial youth weeks. The 2016 Grant Khomo Week takes place at Paarl Gymnasium and two WP teams will be participating. With the 50:50 quota seemingly having the least impact on the overall standard of play of teams along the Cape coastal belt , the next question is what are the chances of an all-WP final at Grant Khomo Week 2016? Here are the Day 1 fixtures:

FIELD SCHOOL SCHOOL
A Blue Bulls Limpopo
A KwaZulu-Natal Pumas
A Western Province XV Griffons
A Golden Lions Free State
A Western Province Boland
B Zimbabwe Border CD
B Valke Griquas CD
B SWD Namibia
B Border Leopards
B Eastern Province Griquas
