Kearsney’s sixth annual Easter rugby festival (KERF) will take place from Thursday 28 March to Monday 01 April 2013 on Botha’s Hill. The organisers have once again managed to assemble a top quality field including Grey College (Bloemfontein), Paarl Gymnasium and Paul Roos (Stellenbosch) who are regarded as three of the all-time best rugby schools in South Africa. In 2013 Boland Landbou (near Paarl), Framesby (Port Elizabeth) and Outeniqua (George) will make their debuts. Many SBR followers from around the country will follow Outeniqua’s progress with keen interest, as the Kwaggas are expected to mount a huge challenge for national top honours in 2013. Selborne is the only other school apart from the hosts to have attended all five KERF’s previously. The East London school is known for producing big packs of forwards and more often than not they get their desired match results. Nico Malan (Humansdorp) and Dr EG Jansen (Boksburg) are two schools that have made several appearances at KERF in the past and can never be underestimated by opponents. The KwaZulu-Natal contingent consisting of Kearsney, Glenwood and Westville are expecting to field fairly competitive teams in 2013 but amongst this classy festival line-up it will take a massive effort on the part of each one of the three local schools to make it through Easter unbeaten.
