    @Tang:You are right the grey side are very slick. Has to be one of the smallest college sides I have seen for a few years now. They definitely put their bodies on the line. We were fortunate to beat Grey but I also think that when we get everything right we will be hard to beat.

    @Beejman – College won easily 76-0. I watched the last ten minutes of the match. It was no test for college. College should have played Wynberg today.

    I watched the PBHS vs Grey fixture. It was a very one sided fixture with Boys High going down 41-0. Curwin Bosch had a superb game for Grey and ran the whole show from start to finish. It seemed as though Boys High gave themselves no chance of winning this fixture. I must say Boys High defended as well as they could and had there not been such ferocious defense, this could have been a run away score to Grey.
    It perplexes me why a school like Grey went and bought players when it appears they have enough depth and talent.
    From a Boys High point of view, I hope this loss is not going to be too damaging. The lack of individual skills and serious pace in the Boys High back line must be a huge worry for the coaches. Boys High turned the ball over with error after error to a Grey side who were more than willing to punish them with ball in hand. To kick the ball down Curwin’s throat time after time was a recipe for disaster.
    Grey are a slick, quick side. It is hard to believe they lost to Grey. One can only imagine that the red card had a massive impact on the fixture.

    @Roger: I hope I’m wrong, but the College score could be much wider. St Alban’s came into the tournament missing six first choice players and lost another four against St Andrew’s.

    I also think that the House v Saints score will be larger, although House will probably rest a lot of players today.

    @Roger: Good morning Roger, your predictions were not particularly accurate. House beat Helpies in every aspect of the game and were unlucky to only win by 35 points. Could have been 50! What are your predictions for Sat? As I said before I think House will be much to strong for Saints!

    @Tang: That is a very good win for a young Wynberg side. Following the live commentary, it seems that PBHS scored both their tries near the end of the match. Did the Wynberg side run out of steam?

    Looking at the earlier result, the match between St. Andrews and Wynberg could be an exciting encounter.

    PBHS go down 17 – 24 to Wynberg. Not a great start by PBHS. Wynberg scored too easily when they got into the red zone. PBHS heavily penalised throughout the game.

    @Vleis: Unfortunately I can’t give you the exact number, but I do know that it’s the vast majority of the squad. The boys had a successful U16 year, but this season will also be a learning curve that will hopefully show some rewards next year.

    They will still be tough to beat, though and will play with character until the end.

    @Gold: Interesting – thanks. How many u17s are in the Wynberg squad? St Alban’s has 14 u17s in their squad, so a steep learning curve awaits them….and the steepness has hit vertical proportions given their incredibly tough fixture list.

    @Stripes: For some reason, Saints do not provide player weights and heights, which is a pity as it improves the marketing and interest in the event.

    I agree it would have been nice to see House play PBHS and Grey HS. I think Saints are going to have a tough time against House and whilst Windhoek are known as the Grey College of Namibia I have heard this years team is not as strong as last year. Any chance of getting the team lists with ages, heights and Weights?

    @Vleis: The College vs Wynberg game was a great battle at this festival last year. This year, however, Wynberg are in a rebuilding phase with a team packed with grade 11’s and they won’t reach the heights of last year where they finished comfortably in the top 10. I think the fixtures will be a good test of this youth group and possibly the lack of expectation this year is why the organisers have opted to keep them away from a good College side.

    @Vleis – I think any PBHS supporter is hoping for better than last season but realistic about the tough fixture list:
    PBHS play Wynberg, Windhoek, Grey HS, KES, DHS and then Bishops all in April and all away from home. First six fixtures are away from home which makes the start to the season incredibly tough.

    In the warmup fixture with Waterkloof PBHS were very competitive and had some excellent passages of the game. Waterkllof have a giant front row and some good, hard running backs so it was a great test for PBHS.
    Both teams had periods where they dominated and both showed excellent defence.

    The PBHS loose forwards could be the key to a good season. Although PBHS don’t seem to have settled on the final loos trio, the loosies look very good. Amongst the backs, there are flashes of potential game breakers. Again in the backs, I think the fly half will have to have a solid season.

    There is a level of optimism about 2015, but there is also a huge amount of reality.

    A good mix of teams, but some of the match-ups seem very strange – particularly on the last day. For starters, St Alban’s and College should swap, so that College can play Wynberg. Also, given the powerful team that House will have this year, they should play play Grey HS on the last day.

    Hopefully the organisers revisit this.

    A really nice festival. I wish College and MHS had one more very testing match after day 1.

    Grey PE, SAC, Wynberg and PBHS have good challenges.
