Which school has the toughest fixtures at Wildeklawer 2013

30 Apr, 2013 beet 16

Using BHP’s ranking for this week and assigning a value based on a formula of 100 minus current rank to each school with the two invitation teams given the benefit of being ranked jointly in 85th position (100-85=15 points), the sum of each school’s two opponents was arrived at and used as the basis for determining who had the hardest schedule. Waterkloof came out tops. The school from Pretoria has to play Outeniqua and Paarl Gymnasium at this year’s Wildeklawer Skouspel. …

KZN needs crucial road victories to keep Grogper Cup dreams alive

29 Apr, 2013 beet 56

After Gauteng raced into a 4-0 lead thanks to outstanding efforts by St Davids and St Albans, KZN’s Northwood spearheaded by their frontrow trio put a spirited fightback to come from 11-3 down at home to beat a gutsy St Benedicts team. Westville backed up this first win in the compo with a very meaningful home result of their own against a strong Pretoria Boys High outfit.  At 4-2 and with many feeling that the tail end of this compo will favour the KZN schools, it makes this weekend’s two games tie-breakers of sorts. …

Match breakdown: Paarl Gim 37 Outeniqua 25

28 Apr, 2013 beet 28

Paarl Gymnasium defeated Outeniqua 37-25 in an away game the many got to enjoy as a result of the Premier Interschools live T.V. coverage. By winning the game Gimmies effectively put a target on their backs as the new team to beat in SA schoolboy rugby.

The game was little like a “Rock, Paper, Scissors!” contest with the Kwaggas constantly opting for individual brilliance (scissors) and almost always being trumped by Gim’s teamwork approach (rock).

Along with the recently update formula that drives the BHP rankings comes a recalculation of who the Top 30 schools in SA have been since 2009 (including the present season 5 of 2013 ).

The rankings confirm that the organisers of Wildeklawer are pretty much on the ball when it comes to inviting the cream of the crop to attend the annual showpiece which will be held from 02 – 04 May at Maritzburg College in Pietermaritzburg this year.…

Die onderstaande statistieke oor die wenners van die administrateursbeker/Direkteurstrofee/Beeldtrofee toon hoe tye verander het. Voorheen “tradisionele” rugbyskole verdwyn, en nuwe word gebore.

Article from

The selectors have named four teams plus reserves for what should be the penultimate round of trials, to be held at Bellville High School on Wednesday 24 April 2013.

While one would normally assume that the Stoffberg and Links teams, who meet at 16:15 are more highly regarded than the Jasper and van Rensburg selections, who play each other at 15:15, there is always room for surprises in the final selections.…
