Grey College 1st XV & Cherries for Welkom Gim matches

Well Grey College was expected to stay out of the limelight until Wildeklawer where the first of their so-called big games against better known strong opponents will kick off. However as a result of one of the wonderful aspects of schoolboy rugby, the ability of smaller schools to put together somewhat surprisingly good 1st XV’s every now and then, Grey is faced with has a couple of banana skin games is get through during these next few weeks. First up is Welkom Gim who this early in the season already  look to be on course to becoming one of the surprise package teams of 2016. They have definitely caught the eye  due to their convincing results. Also if ever there was such a thing as a “good time” to take on SA’s best rugby school, it’s at the start of a season because once Grey gets into rhythm, there is a well-established record to suggest that they are nearer to the definition of ” impossible to beat” than any other school rugby team in SA.

  1. I have seen Welkom Gimnasium at Loftus against Waterkloof. They have a very strong pack of forwards that will give Grey College a tough time. Although I have no idea to the strength of Grey College, this might still turn out to be a very tough game for them

  2. Os se seun is op die reserwebank vir die Cherries die naweek. Behoort ‘n helfte te speel. Almal is opgewonde om hom weer te sien speel na die besering wat hom laas jaar uitgehou het.

    Daardie Cherries span is self “potent”. Behoort selfs sterkter te wees as die klompie krieketspelers in atlete terugkeer in die 2de kwartaal.

  3. @Greybrak: Ek hoor hy oefen op haker hierdie jaar – is hy op die bench as haker? Ek dink hy sal ‘n goeie haker wees want hy het die bou en die spoed daarvoor. Sy workrate is ook bo-gemiddeld.

  4. Love the props name Naude Naude, almost as good as Kapstok Van Greuning and Baksteen Nel….a real Vystaat Boereseun name…

  5. Naude Naude. Sy pa het seker gehakkel van senuwees toe hy sy geboorte gaan registreer het :mrgreen: @Speartackle: Lei jy aan n identiteitskrisis, of het jy toe nie reggekom met Garsfontein se mammies nie? Watter een is jou susterskind?

  6. @BOG: As Spear sy identiteit openbaar mag hy dalk sy plek kwyt wees……..maar sy naam verskyn daar iewers

  7. @Grasshopper, @BOG: Sover ek kan onthou is Naude Naude ‘n talentvolle mannetjie met baie krag en vaart – soortgelyk aan Ollie. Hy is nou maar O17 en was in 2012 kaptein van die Vrystaat 013 cravenweek span.

  8. @BrotherBear: I’m sure he is an amazing player. To make the Grey 1st team is an achievement in itself, just thought it was maybe a typo from Beet.

  9. @Bison: Dis korrek, sal interessant wees om te sien of Du Randt kan werk daar. Sover klink dit of hy goed gedoen het op haker tydens oefening.

    @BrotherBear: Jy is reg oor Naude. Hy het laasjaar kookwater rugby vir die o/16 A span gespeel. Amper soos ‘n 4de losvoorspeler.
