New Zealand national First XV Championship 2019 – schoolboy rugby

8 Sep, 2019 beet 0

Hastings Boys’ High School of the Hurricanes may have only finished in second place in their own regional (Super 8) round robin regular season and then been beaten in competition final but the wildcard like route proved good enough for them. When push came to shove they produced the perfect record and claimed the biggest price in New Zealand schoolboy rugby – the Barbarian Cup. Although controversial poachers St Kentigern’s were eliminated from the main title race by eventual boys’ school runners-up Kings College of Auckland, St Kent’s did go on to lift the Co-ed Cup in 2019.…

Barloworld Toyota Menlyn Noord Suid Rugbytoernooi 2020 – Fixtures

27 Aug, 2019 beet 64

Noord-Suid 2020 organisers have not been put off by the World Schools Festival, which also takes place in Pretoria during the same short school holiday.  The seventh edition of the extremely popular festival is attracting a bigger field than ever before – 18 schools – but it’s likely that some schools will only play one match at the event.  The host school will probably be a founding school Waterkloof, who along with Menlopark and Paarl Gim have participated in every Noord-Suid Rugbytoernooi since inception in 2014.

The 2019 Schoolboy Rugby Season

25 Aug, 2019 beet 225

Hi all

The 2019 regular season is past tense!

I thought for a change it would be nice to document the 50 or so most season defining events/matches/characters of 2019. It would therefore include results on the field and things that happened off it as well and can even extend to the comments made here by specific bloggers. I have attached the results that I recorded for 2019 in a PDF file to help the memory bank along.
