  1. @Rainier: Valid point taken. I must admit my initial feeling at your first comment was the exact opposite of your intention. It seemed like a name recognition disservice to a man who had establish a legacy worth paying tribute as a result of what he achieved during his rugby playing days. So I’m happy there is now clarification re insensitivity.

  2. @beet: according to the program for the schoolterm they do not have a game this weekend, I suppose it is due to the SA schools athletics champs

  3. @Cappie: Free State rugby or athletics team. Grey boys are generous. We give our places up to give others a chance. LOl :lol:

  4. I managed to update the Grey College squad.

    As it turns out the centre Franco’s surname is spelt S-M-I-T-H
