  1. Groot game in Virseker beker die naweek. Transvalia vs Menlopark. Menlopark sal die game moet wen om enigsins nog kans te staan vir plek in halfeinstryd indien hul nog kans het. Nie seker van die log nie.Transvalia klaar in die semis maar wil seker probeer om op nr 1 eindig op die log en moet Garsfontein ook nog speel.

  2. ANder groot game Waterkloof vs Affies behoort baie goed te wees..sien ook EG Jansen speel Noord Kaap. Wanneer was die game gereel? Glo nie dit was deel van hul program vir 2018 nie. Goeie besluit om oefening te kry dink ek voor EGJ se westryde volgende naweek teen Menlopark. Hulle het 6 naweke laas gespeel

  3. Think Menlo vs Valia the game of the weekend. Sad to say but HTSM in for another hiding against Monnas…

  4. Baie teleurgesteld met Menlo … hulle val uitmekaar!!! Die bom gaan binnekort bars en alles op gaan op die lappe kom.

  5. @Richard Lowe: Jy weet dat Garsies net ‘n klipgooi teen die pad op self ‘n lekker rugby program bied, sonder enige interne bomme, politiek of borg en ouer insette…

    Inteendeel, dit lyk my dis nou die verkose bestemming vir Wynland spelers wat graag beter geleenthede soek. :-D

    ReplyReply
  6. @jakes: Groot uitdaging vir Menlo … paar beserings vir Saterdag, maar weet die span gaan alles gee.
    Indien hulle die eerste 50 min wat hulle teen Monnas Saterdag gespeel het kan herhaal vir 70 min dan is enige iets moontlik.
    Go MenloBoys!

    Is die Noorkaap wedsryd tuis?

  7. N Brokkie nuttelose inligting, Ek het die ander aand uitgewerk PRG se gemiddelde telling die jaar na 13 wedstryde is iets soos 61 -12, dit moet naby n rekord wees, die naweek mag dit dalk net vergroot, met alle respek teenoor Rondebosch, ek weet n Grey span van so n paar jaar terug was dalk net so groot. En nee ek probeer nie boast nie, net n observation!

    ReplyReply
  8. @kokkie: Dis baie indrukwekkend. Ek dink PRG sal as die Nr 1 skool eindig die jaar. GCB het drie riller wedstryde wat voorle – Grey High het baie goed gelyk om ‘n goeie Framesby span oortuigend te klop, Glenwood se rekord spreek boekdele en PRG se span is baie gebalanseerd en speel dinamiese rugby.

    ReplyReply
  9. @Richard Lowe: MP moet die enigste skool in SA wees waar daar so ‘n groot verskil is tussen die jaargroepe se uitslae op junior vlak en die uitslae op senior vlak.

    Spanne soos GCB en Marlow raak beter soos die seuns die kultuur, afrigting en trots van die skole assimileer terwyl hulle skoolloopbaan vorder, terwyl die teenoorgestelde by MP gebeur.

    Dis baie vreemd.

    ReplyReply
  10. @Rainier: ja die Grey’s wedstryd mag ook op n nat veld wees, miskien sal dit die tuisspan n bietjie help, dit reen in die Kaap vanoggend en seker dit sal aanbeweeg PE toe, dis nou benewens die spreiers wat die heel week aan was, :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  11. @Rainier: sommige 1e spanne se truie is so styf dat jy die puisies op spelers se rug deur trui kan sien. (Wonder hoekom so baie puisies?) Koppe ook so groot dat geen skrum-pet sal pas. Twee ouens nodig on kop-bande op te sit ;-)

    ReplyReply
  12. @Rainier: ideaal vir mosselkraker of galjoen op die rotse tussen Cape St Francis se punt en die surfer dudes se branders.

    ReplyReply
  13. @Rainier: jip Menlo se gaping tussen 1stes en juniors is as gevolg daarvan dat hulle baie aggressiewe werwing van laerskool spelers van oral ook buite Pretoria nognie met die huidige span al in plek was nie.

    As ek na die wedstryd nou kyk moet ek se die ref sukkel maar…hy lyk nie bevooroordeeld nie..net dat hy baie verkeerde besluite maak wat duidelik sigbaar is op tv … wys net hoe goed die top refs wel is wat super rugby blaas.

  14. Wat ‘n great come back van Menlopark. Wen Transvalia 38-37.
    Twee driee in 2 minute.
    Well done. Dis nou van aanhouer wen.

    ReplyReply
  15. @Bere007: Ja. Moes moeilik vir Menlo gewees het met alles wat van die veld af gebeur. Verloor afrigters en spelers na ander skole.
    Die 1stes verdien respek.

    ReplyReply
  16. Blyk jy daar is baie doemprofete ten aansien van Menlo en dog klop hulle die Nr 6 gerankde skool. Well done Menlo.

    Well doen Garsies met julle een en Affies met hulle een.

    Verassing van due day is Affies Onder 14’s se verloor teen Kloof. Baie geluk Kloof. Slegs Affies se 2de verloor van die maar.

    ReplyReply
  17. Dankie aan Kloof vir julle gasvryheid vandag. Geluk aan julle seuns wat tot die einde ruggas gespeel het.

    Nie Affies se beste dag nie, maar geluk Bulle julle het Affies Guts gewys om van 13-0 af terug te kom

    ReplyReply
  18. @4×4: Ek dink die punt is, gebaseer op hulle junior uitslae, moet MP die Nr 6 span in die land wees.

  22. Dankie Transvalia vir ‘n great dag se rugby! Die aanbieding was ook uitstekend …. wel gedaan!!

    Sien dieselfde narre is weer besig om modder te gooi terwyl hulle self in die moedder staan. Weet meer wat by Menlo “aangaan” as by hulle eie skole. Vergeet van Menlo en ondersteun julle skool en spanne.

    Daar gelaat …. AbsolutMenlBoys!!. Weereens bewys dat hier by Menlo is alle ouderdomsgroepe belangrik en dit is hoe ons daarvan hou. Wen of verloor die Parkie laat sy spoor … en watse spoor het hulle nie gelaat nie!

    O/14 kom nie lekker aan die gang soos ons hulle ken nie en wen 35 – 26.
    0/15 sit hulle hoë tempo totale rugby voort ten spyte van die nou veld wen 55 -12.
    0/16 bou voort op hulle goeie vertoning teen Monnas en hou hulle nog in die wedloop, wen 66 – 20

    Menlo eerstes … karakter karakter karakter!!! Baie geluk aan elke speler en afrigters, so wen kry jy nie nie as die gees in die span nie reg is nie. Welgedaan!!!
    Harde wedstryd … Menlo wat hulle self baie onderdruk sit onder die hoë bal en Transvalia se lynstane wat gepla het.
    Menlo het voor egter beheer gevat en die wen verdien.

    Bekerrugby op sy beste!

  23. @AbsolutMenlo: ja dit moes nou harde rugby gewees het as ek na die telling kyk. Baie geluk Menlopark.As ek so na die log kyk op die Virseker beker blog behoort die stand van sake so te wees op die oomblik na die naweek se rugby. HELPMEKAAR EN GARSFONTEIN beide op 26. MONUMENT 23. TRANSVALIA 22 EN MENLOPARK 17. Dit wil se as Menlo vol punte gekry het vandag en Transvalia 2. (4 vir wen ,1 vir 4 driee,1 vir verloor met minder as 7 punte.)Dit wil se as Menlopark vol punte kry teen EGJansen volgende week en Transvalia geen teen Garsfontein gaan hul gelyk eindig in 4de plek. Dis hoe ek dit sien. Kan verkeerd wees

    ReplyReply
  24. @Bayern: Jy is heeltemal reg. Baie geluk, maar as oud Kempie, en 1ste span kaptein nogal, wil ek net sê dat my alma mater se huidige afrigters my vandag alle respek vir die skool laat verloor het. Het nogal oorweeg om my Kempie trui oor my skouer te hang as teken van respek vir die skool waarvoor ek vir 5 jaar alles gegee het, maar bly ek het nie, want teen die einde van die wedstryd sou ek daai trui in die asblik gegooi het. Wat julle vandag teenoor my seun gedoen het, is onverskoonbaar. Om te wen is belangrik, maar as opvoeders het julle ‘n groter verantwoordelikheid en ek dink julle het vandag die toets gedop… !! Ek weet dit beteken vir niemand iets nie, maar ek is klaar met skole rugby. Dit breek meer seuns as wat dit opbou. Dankie tog daar is meer om voor te lewe as ‘n rugby bal!!

  26. @Vetseun: Jy kan nie skole rugby weggooi oor n skool of insident nie. My seun het self n nare ondervinding laasjaar met n Kempie afrigter gehad. Gelukkig het hy kop gehou en net weggestap. Maar die game gaan aan.

    ReplyReply
  27. @4×4: …. stem saam hulle kan nie so sleg wees nie!

    Geluk met julle goeie uitslae! Beïndruk met Kloof wat die tyd van die jaar nog 16 spanne in die veld kan stoot.

    ReplyReply
  28. @Hooit: appearantly EG Jansen game against Noord Kaap was cancelled. As per information on the Virseker beker blog received by BEET, the EGJ matrics in first team stopped playing rugby to focus on Academics. Therefor the game was cancelled. Do not know how this will affect their last game against Menlopark next week?

    ReplyReply
  29. @vetseun dit klink onsmaaklik, wat het gebeur. Het jou seun verlede week gespeel teen Noordheuwel ?

    ReplyReply
  30. @AbsolutMenlo: Ek moet sê ek was teleurgesteld in beide skole vandag. Fourie du Preez het Affies gedaag om deel te vorm van die handskud uitdaging voor die wedstryd ( wat ek dink ‘n goeie idee is) maar die spanne het dit nie aanvaar nie, of was nie bewus van die uitdaging nie.

    Die 1ste helfde was gesaai met van die bal af voorvalle wat 2 geelkaarte vir Kloof beteken het. Die seuns was egter nie die probleem nie, maar eerder die ongehoorsame ouers langs die veld.

    Dit het my laat besef dat ouers eintlik emosioneel onvolwasse is as dit kom by waar hulle kinders rygby speel

    ReplyReply
  31. @beet: Agree. It should apply to sponsors too. They think they have the right to call others clowns just because they sponsor a school. And they keep lying to themselves – and therefore to others. They also claim the right to be the sole speakers of a school – it is sick.
    Lost all my respect for them.

    ReplyReply
  32. @4×4: Hoe bedoel jy die seuns is nie die probleem nie as jy se daar was geel kaarte en met van die bal af voorvalle?
    Of bedoel jy die ouers was selfs erger as dit?

    ReplyReply
  33. Monnas,Garsies en Helpmekaar gaan almal dalk op 28 punte eindig en Transvalia op 27. Ek neem aan dat punte vir en teen gaan dan bepaal wie eindig eerste ens. Monnas gaan dan seker bo eindig. Ek dink Monnas gaan vir Helpmekaar stamp. Transvalia en Garsies gaan close wees,baie drieë.

    ReplyReply
  34. @Wonder: Punte vir en punte teen tel ja… Beet se logs 8s nie heeltemal reg nie… garsies se punteverskil is tans heelwat beter as helpies sin…

    ReplyReply
  35. @Djou: Ek moet bysê dat die 2de helfde baie meer gedissiplineerd was van beide kante af en omdat daar meer op die bal gekonsentreer was sprankel rugby met tye opgelewer het.

    Dit grief my my as ouers seuns aanhits en of op en aanmerkings skreeu teenoor skeidsregters. Dus dink ek het ek seker veralgemeen maar was daar maar soos gewoonlik die handjie vol ouers wat maar sukkel met die konsep van geniet net die rugby en skreeu slegs positiewe kommentaar.

    ReplyReply
  36. @4×4: Ja… ongelukkig is daai ouers orals… hulle vergeet dis kinders… moontlik omdat van hulle nooit iets bereik het nie en nou deur hul kinders wil leef… so sad… dit bring die slegste uit mense uit…

    ReplyReply
  37. @4×4: Dis afrigters speel ook ‘n rol om die ouers en kinders se gedrag te bepaal – gewoonlik is ‘n afrigter wat op die skeidsregter skree ‘n katalis vir die ouers om dieselfde te doen en die spelers begin dan ook die beslissings bevraagteken.

  38. This must be one of the worst years for Queens in their history – I really hope this is an anomaly and not a sign of things to come as Border rugby needs all 3 colleges to be strong.

    ReplyReply
  39. @Rainier: You’re making some bold statements in your sales pitch. I have my own theory on why Menlo’s first team isn’t doing as well as their lower age group teams. I can’t wait to see their u/15’s in matric to see if my theory is correct. You claim that even the Wineland school boys want to go to Garsies because of the “opportunities” or as a grade 11 boys parent said just a few weeks ago, the “money”. Nothing to do with opportunities for the forgotten or those that didn’t get opportunities, that was all just a BS claim from the start that explains the smiley face I suppose? Like the EFF they also think money equals opportunities? :lol:. Just remember buying a boy at grade 10 or 11 isn’t developing that boy it is buying a boy that somebody else has developed. When Abner came to Boishaai nobody at Boishaai claimed they have developed him. Nobody should claim that when they buy boys at grade 10 or 11 most kids will already be developed there will be exceptions but very few.

    @kokkie: What you are saying is true and I said it a while back this PRG side will be the best SBR team in history if they can go undefeated. They have better stats than the 2007 GCB team at the moment. Everybody at PRG should enjoy this awesome team and what they are doing. There is two hard hurdles still ahead but I think they will make it.

    Now for interschools. I can’t wait for this week. Good luck to both schools it’s been a while since not one of them are at the top of the rankings comes interschools but Gim must be favorites and that goes for the age group teams also.

  40. @Stier: jy wil/kan nou ma nie verstaan nie ne, ander skole gaan werf en hulle gaan in die kaap werf, en daar is totaal niks wat jy omtrent dit kan doen nie, dis soos die ander unies wat grey elke jaar leeg koop, ek kan moan en bitch net soos ek wil, dit gaan niks aan die saak doen nie, die harde realityd is dat daar net eenvoudig te veel spelers in die kaap is wat aan die vereistes voldoen wat die unies aan skole rugby stel, hulle gaan opgeraap word, aanvaar dit nou maar en beweeg aan…

    ReplyReply
  41. @4×4: Ons weet een persoon is genoeg om iets goed in iets lelik te verander. Maar kom ons vat dit een stappie verder. Wat gebeur met daardie seuns wanneer hulle na ‘n wedstryd huis toe gaan. As hul ouers so by die veld reageer – en ek weet mens kan nie veralgemeen nie – maar dan is daar ‘n kans dat die seuns by die huis ook onder hul pa’s se tonge gaan deurloop. Ek sou nie een van daardie seuns wou wees nie.
    Maar so word patrone in die samelewing geskep.

    ReplyReply
  42. @Smallies: Ek het gedink Grey gaan wen, maar nie so ver nie. En byna al die uitslae is groot tellings. Sjoe, het dit nie verwag nie! Nou vir die 2 grotes!

    ReplyReply
  43. Baie geluk aan Menlo se 1ste XV (ook die jonger spanne). Julle het “VIRSEKER” Vanderbijlpark besoek en die “job” kom doen.
    Eerste span het baie karakter getoon en hulself in die wedstryd gehou deur seker te maak hul telbord hou aan draai. Baie goeie lynskoppe en hantering van spel in druk situasies. Goeie aanvallende spel met ‘n losskakel wat ken van aftrap 8-O .

    Valia, julle wedstrydplan was in die kol, maar ongelukkig het dissipline deurgaans ontbreek en spel vanaf jul set pieces nie altyd vlot verloop nie. Lynstane was glad nie goed nie en ietwat kwesbaar op verdediging. Daardie first time tackle is so belangrik.
    Ongeag, julle kan julle koppe omhoog hou. Die uitslag sal julle nie “define” nie. Onthou jul entrance, “HOLD STRONG”…

    ReplyReply
  44. @Djou: my seun hulle het n paar jaar gelede teen n skool in Bloem gespeel, tydens die game was daar n pa wat lekker aan gegaan het, later het hy ons kinders met geweld begin dryg, ek het dit toe maar op my self geneem om hom so n bietjie met geweld te gaan dreig, in my oe is die rev fairgame, maar los die kinders uit, en as daar n bietjie handbags op die veld is, laat die revs en skole dit uitsort, jy as ouer is daar om jou kind te ondersteun nie om hom te verneder nie

    ReplyReply
  45. @Smallies: Dit is so waar – en ongelukkig is daar so baie sulke stories.
    Die ergste wat ek gesien het was toe Garsies se o.16’s paar jaar gelede teen ‘n skool van die Oos-Rand gespeel het. Garsies het ver gewen, maar na die wedstryd stamp ‘n ouer ‘n Garsie-seun. Dit was so 10 minute na die wedstryd toe almal al wegstap na hul kringetjie gemaak het en op pad was pawiljoen toe. Die seun se ma spring toe tussenin en die pa lig sy hand om haar te klap. Dis toe dat ek tussenbeide tree en sy hand gryp en hy tref my skouer skrams – anders sou hy haar vol in die gesig getref het.
    Dis eers daarna dat ek dink hoe die pa sy seun – en dalk vrou en dogter – by die huis behandel.

    ReplyReply
  46. Smallies – ‘n ref is beslis nie “fair game” nie. Veral nie van ouers nie. Buitendien twyfel ek of 5% van rugby kykers enigsins met gesag kan gesels oor rugby reels. Ek meen anders as “holding” en “forward” En ek sluit myself in.

    Ek ondersteun die res van jou argument.

    ReplyReply
  47. @dammetjie: as jy iemand langs die kantlyn het wat weet hoe om te chirp,kan daai ou somtyds meer bydra tot die genot van die toeskouers, ek praat van n ou wat regtig n rev so kan chirp dat hy later nie anders kan as om ook te lag nie… Dis wat ek bedoel met fairgame

    ReplyReply
  48. @Smallies: I understand it completely but you don’t seem to understand. Some people should stop pretending it’s about something other than their schools rugby success like you might try to point out. Go look at what some have claimed on this blog. Many people have been attacked and accused of spreading lies because of those claims but all along it was all rubbish or the motives of some schools have changed? But don’t forget many bloggers have been called out here. Had there been honesty from the start there would have been few issue’s other than ripping them for not being able to pruduce rugby success without the Cape Winelands. :oops:

  49. @4×4: Die rugby was hard. Duidelik geen liefde verloor op die veld tussen die spanne. Ek het gehoop Kloof wen maar nou ja. Gedink WK se speler was gelukkig om net geel te kry na hy Ahs 6 geskop het. Self kloof ondersteuners het gedink hy moes rooi kry. Messi sou trots gewees het op daai skop. Kloof 7 en 9 het saam ahs 1 uitgestaan. Moes albei CW gespeel het.Miskien is die ondersteuners wat agter die picket fence staan ‘n probleem?

    ReplyReply
  50. @4×4: Ek moet nou eers diep asem haal en tot tien tel.Affies is bekend vir die matcho en intimideerende tipe spel die off te ball insedente het juis van affies gekom.Een voorval is toe daai no6 in een so n geval betrokke was en die Kloof seun hom geskop het(hy was damm gelukkig om nie n rooi kaart te kry nie)Een van kloof se onnies het langs my gesit en gese iets moes hom baie kwaad gemaak het want hy is n baie sagte en bedeesde ou.Moet se die 6 het soos n sokker speller wonderbaarlik herstel.By gese die ref van loftus was bra swak saam met die lyn regters wat nie altyd of slegs een span uit gewys het.
    By die 0\16 game was dit dieselfde hier het affies een rooi en twee geelkaarte gekry vir vuil spel die n010 van kloof is na n vuishou en hoogvat alla Frik Du Preez met harsingsskuding van die veld.Hoor daar gaan n klag teen die ref by die unie gele word).Rugby is nie vir sussies nie en sulke derbys sal mar altyd hard wees met insedente.
    @Wonder: As jy daar was sou jy sien affies was in n mate gelukkig om die game te kon wen.Daai een drie in die hoek voor die kloof skare was seersekerlik uit.Die ander Faktor is Kloof se lynstane jy kan eenvoudig nie n game wen met sulke swak lynstaan werk nie en veral nie op die stadium van die geveg nie.
    Geluk aan Affies dit sal maar altyd n harde een wees en as julle nou vuilspel wil sien speel teen van die Joburg engelse skole.

  51. @Jaques: Great Post!!
    Julle manne kan verseker hulle koppe hoog hou … beide spanne het alles op die veld gelos.

    Die 10, Bernard van der Linde is eintlik ons gereelde 9 en CW 9, paar beserings het veranderinge genoodsaak. Moet sê ons instaan 9 het hom baie goed van sy taak gekwyt!

  52. Hierdie off the ball en ondersteuner insidente sal altyd daar wees, maar in my opinie is die positiewe elke Saterdag baie meer. Hanteer die negatiewe em move on!

    ReplyReply
  53. @sewes: As ek daar was? Hoe kan jy nog twyfel? Ek beskryf dan vir jou wat gebeur het! Albei Ahs se drieë in die hoekie was in my opinie wel drieë, kloof het baie goed gespeel. Hul verdediging en disipline was by tye egter nie te goed nie. Ek kla ook nie oor die ref nie bv Kloof seun stamp aan ahs speler na die fluitjie geblaas het, ref gee strafskop aan ahs. Ahs 2 vat bal gooi kloof speler in gesig. Ref draai strafskop om. Kloof skop pale toe. 13/0 vir kloof. Kloof het regtig goed gespeel. Die 7 en 9 sal geen span in die steek laat nie. Ahs het sagte drieë gedruk maar moes hard werk.

  54. @sewes: Die drie waarna verwys word in die hoekie was verseker ‘n drie. Was regvoor my gedruk. Ek het na die game met Pfaff gepraat (seker jy ken hom) wat ook teenoor my bevestig het dat dit ‘n drie was. Hy net nader as ek aan die doellyn gestaan.

    Om een of ander rede bestaan die wanpersepsie dat as jy Affies will wen moet jy onder hulle velle probeer kom. Ek vermoed dit is dalk wat gister gebeur het maar Affies het hulle energie op die bal gehou.

    Wat betref die Onder 16 wedstryd kan ek nie met jou verskil nie. Ek dink die 9 was so bietjie koelkas toe gestuur vir ‘n spear tackle en die flank vir ‘n hoogvat op Kloof se tien. Net dankbaar die seun het herstel.

    Ek is nie seker vir wie die rooikaart gegee is nie….ek vermoed dit het gebeur toe ek gaan hotdogs koop het.

    Nieteenstaande die gevalle was die wedstryde deur die bank, met uitsondering van die Onder 15’s, kliphard.

    As ek na die 2de span wedstryd se uitslae kyk en aanneem dat daar baie Graad 11’s in beide spanne is, het die afrigters volgende jaar baie werk oor en vermoed ek gaan Affies met ‘n groot groep Graad 11’s volgende jaar speel.

    .@Hooit: Miskien is jy reg, maar ek het in my lewe al te veel keer gesien dat onderwysers, wat veronderstel is om kinders voor te berei vir die lewe na skool, eintlik meer kinders afbreek as opbou binne die rugby konteks. Dankie tog dat ek nie nou meer met hulle hoef te deel nie!

  56. For this comment: @Vetseun:

    I think it’s important to stress that Vetseun’s disappointment is more a case of the spirit of sportsmanship being ignored rather than one of the Kempies’ coaching staff action in an immoral manner. The Kempies coaches applied the letter of the law, which they were within their rights to do.

    Vetseun’s feeling was they could have been more lenient because KP had the game in the bag and the part of true meaning of school sport was being missed by the rigid decision made.

    Maar ter wille van transparency, hier is die feite: Elke liewe een van die seuns het matriek geslaag en danksy die skool se netwerk het hulle na skool of ‘n werk gekry, of gaan studeer, of speel professioneel rugby.

  91. During the season I try to watch different schools play and over the years I’ve seen/heard kids from just about every school say or do unacceptable stuff. Many incidents were by kids who attend good state and private schools where disciple is a high priority and the staff running the schools are doing a heck of a lot more right than they are getting things wrong.

    These isolated incidents won’t ever go away and it is very easy to pick up on one problem experienced with a rival and run with it, maybe even blow it out of proportion to win an argument or degrade an opponent, but guaranteed there is or has been a kid from the school you support who has at some stage also let himself and his school down. You really need to pick up on a trend and it seems like the only way would be to attend that other school’s matches on a regular basis. To play them once a year and formulate a life long opinion is fine its just when sharing that opinion publicly that it needs a lot more substance.

    For unhappy adults there is always recourse. A good school will hear your complaint and will probably get back to on action taken, because they pride themselves on principle and are concerned about their public image.

    For a lot of what I hear or see it’s kind of the what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas approach as far as public forums or social media goes. Kids do things like kick, knee, punch, head but, swear, verbally abuse, make obscene gestures and even disrespect adults – it happens. None of us want to hear bad things about our own schools, so perhaps put yourself in the shoes of that school supporter of the school you want to knock before commenting.

    The problems that arise because of adults misbehaving are trickier to deal with. I think the question that needs to be answered first is can or should the school be held accountable? I guess it depends on the situation.

  112. @Bush: I thought the Grey 6 was superb, and their 7 and15 very good. Grey emmense at ruck time and cleaned up Glenwood on the deck and at lineout time. The Glenwood 7 had a great game outside of his card, as did Jonas playing at 9, certainly in my book not much to choose between the 9’s, Jonas more inventive with good use of the pop pass. I thought Conan was head and shoulders the best back on display and made Wycliffe look flat footed, plus pulled off some huge hits. It’s a weak comparison to throw in the comment about how some of Greys 2017 players would feature this year, the guy is legitimately still at school, not by design. GW lineouts were a shambles and where you thought they would dominate at scrum time never happened, and there line kicking let them down. A great game fiercely competed and defended by both sides.

  117. @chief: I don’t know the answer to that but he would slot in very well with an extremely talented Sharks u19 back line. As we know, the conversion to higher honors isn’t a straight line, however he could set the 7s world alight.

    ReplyReply
  118. Amongst the u19s that represented Grey in the past two come to mind as players I have fond memories of thanks due to their outstanding play. Henco Greyling the loose-forward and Henry Immelmann the fullback.

    I agree with @chief: about the “ontwikkeling” bit. The odds are badly stacked against an u19 school player making it. Unions have worked hard in recent years to overcome this but it’s not easy being in a school classroom vs a semi-pro of the same age who is working on his rugby development during that time. If you’re an u19 player at school your best bet is to always sign with the local union.

    I’ve seen a few short guys like Aplon and Kolbe (abroad the likes of Shane Williams and Brice Dulin) make it but generally they are back 3 players. The world of pro rugby is generally unkind to short players who want to play centre. Not impossible tho. I’ve seen a useful centre by the name of Kyle Eastmond (I think he’s a League convert) do well for himself in England, earning international caps along the way. Perhaps someone for ClF to model himself on.

    Today it felt like Ian Small-Smith was the Glenwood dream destroyer. I would have bet money on Glenwood to finish that breakout counter from deep inside their own half right at the death. ISS initially allowed his man to get around him but he reeled in ClF from behind and stopped a certain winning try.

    But a lot of positives to talk about from this exciting match instead of delving in the negativeness. The draw seemed a fair result but boy judging by the body language out there when the final whistle went, it looked like both teams had lost. The way they both went for the win at the end added to the good memories.

    u16A game was a tough one for Glenwood. That team was the shining star last year after winning in Bloem. It’s hard to understand what’s gone wrong.

    The Grey u16A fullback was a standout. I will follow his developments next year with interest. He played Grant Khomo Week for the Bulls (Menlopark), so new in the Grey setup but fitting like a glove already.

  125. @Buddy: Eish. Not easy for sure. Noticed the lock at centre. He still runs like a forward. Someone needs to give him catwalk training so he can carry himself like a glamorous backline player :mrgreen:

    Scrummy at 10 seemed like a continuation of Grant Khomo Week. Good player. I think he will do well over the next couple of years.

  126. Smallies en Chief, julle posts op hierdie thread is ‘n swak refleksie op die skool wat julle trui verteenwoordig.

  127. @beet: Howzit Beet, re ISS, whilst he was great on defense in preventing a possible game winning try, he was by and large neutralized by the GW backs. On another note it was disappointing to see the official GW photographer run onto the field and show the ref a try on her camera which the ref had ruled as held up. Whilst the ball had been clearly grounded, GW foretunately scored in the next move, otherwise that decision could have been very contentious.

  128. @McCulleys Workshop: Let’s not forget the Grey medic/assistant coach/physio whoever he was, running on and off the field like a headless chicken, crowing instructions to the GCB players before the final lineout. Which GCB made a total truck up of. Maybe if the whoever he was refrained from taking over the captaincy, the lineout would have gone GCB way and they could have won the game. Great call whoever you were. Will just call you Costa. Costa GCB the game.

  129. Is it true that Glenwood did not win a single rugby game in the inter schools with GCB ?

  130. @Snoek: Heard they won only one game. But that could be a rumour. Ask Smallies or Chief they will tell you with gay pride I mean grey pride

  135. On a more positive note, please note the following tweets between Glenwood and GCB:

    Glenwood High School: We would like to thank @GreyKollege for an incredible weekend of sport. Well done to all the teams! Safe travels back to Bloem!

    Grey College: @glenwoodhigh we can’t thank you enough for your hospitality. We had a great time and it really felt like a home away from home. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

    ReplyReply
  136. @Vleis: Thank you for posting this, it made me realize again that the whole exercise is for the benefit of the boys in the schools… We as supporters and parents tend to get totally out of control sometimes and it reflects badly on ourselves and also on what I personally try to teach my children… @Bush: mate lets stop this shit and act like the adults we are supposed to be….

    ReplyReply
  137. @Smallies: Then do me a favor and say well done to Rugby and stop finding excuses on why GCB didn’t win. Those boys threw their bodies at each other for over 70 mins. After the game the crowd stood and applauded the two teams. My money is still on GCB vs PRG

    ReplyReply
  138. Congrats to both teams especially GW … great result!

    My money next week definitely on PRG

    .@beet: The x – Menlo player is full of talent. Interesting playing 15 … at Menlo he only wanted to play 10. Personally I think 15 will be his best position.

  139. @AbsolutMenlo: That’s a really safe bet, I hope you put zillions on the game. As PRG don’t play anyone next weekend 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  140. @Vleis: looks a lot like diplomatic talk to me. Always good to ensure fixtures for next year secured, or what? Am I a bit pessimistic on the perceived good nature of “man”? Good lessons for the young folk though! Don’t know if the Glenwood spirit is so strong after such an across board hammering?

  141. Het gehoor Affies gaan nie vlg jaar teen Glenwood speel oor al die jaar se o\19s nie.Is daar nie nou n prov o/19 toernooi aan die gang nie? :roll:

    ReplyReply
  142. @sewes: So that means less games for Grassy, most of the WC, FS, EC and EP. Fantastic news more talented rugby players sitting around doing kuk all. If I was a school sports planner, GW would be on top of my list for next year and forever on. Hopefully House can fit GW into their busy schedule.

  143. @sewes:

    Dit gaan onmoontlik wees om ‘n seun van O/19 weg te wys. My kommentaar oor Conan is heeltemal oor die feit dat hy veronderstel is om volgende jaar SA U20 te speel omdat hy laas jaar in die SARU groep was. Kom ons kyk wat gebeur ek het vandag gehoor dat hy wel by Sharks gaan wees en behoort dan ook seker nou deel te vorm van die O/19’s.

    ReplyReply
  144. @sewes: Affies het self so 2/3 terug ‘n goeie 0/19 heelagter gehad. Gaan hulle ook games kanseleer teen die ander top rugby skole, HJS bv het verlede jaar vir Abner gehad? Ek dink hulle is bang vir verloor.

  146. @PaarlBok: Beslis. Elke jaar ‘n baie goeie en uiterse kompeterende interskool. Vanaf die kultuuraand, na waterpolo na die hokkie en rugby. ‘n Geskikte manier om jaarliks die interskole meë af te sluit!

    ReplyReply
  147. @sewes: I though high school rugby was under 19 rugby? I don’t think Glenwood has an “unacceptable” number of under 19s in their side either. Not more than any other year at least. So why does this become an issue when for schools when they’re on the losing (drawing) side?

    ReplyReply
  148. Can I just reitterate that it was a brilliant game of /19 schoolboy rugby, played by 2 of the top 3 sides in the country this year.

    I am not sure why the other GCB supporters are off on a /19 goosechase, it is not part of the GCB culture to look for excuses afterwards.

    This year the Grey /11 team took lumps at the Aloe Cup after winning it two years in a row. And a few people commented how impressed they were with the demeanor of the Grey coaches and parents and boys in defeat – I hope we can follow that example on this very public forum.

    ReplyReply
  149. @Rainier: Absolutely. My Alma mater was humbled with 66 points by a team with no u19s when they had 3.I don’t for a second believe their supporters would be this ingratious if the result was the other way around. Set a good example for those kids. They drew to a Glenwood side that is full value. Full stop

    ReplyReply
  150. @Rainier:

    Niemand het verskonings gemaak vir Grey se draw nie. Inteendeel het ek gedink Glenwood gaan die wedstryd wen en ek het self gehoor dat ‘n Grey ouer gesê het dat Grey gelukkig was die naweek. Daar was glo ‘n drie of twee nie toegeken aan Glenwood nie.

    ReplyReply
  151. @Playa: I think just about every top 50 rugby school has had an influential u19 player in their 1st XV in the last few years. Grey College have had a couple who have been captain and even one of Boishaai’s unbeaten teams was captained by an u19.

    There is always a debate about whether u19s should or should not play 1st XV rugby. My feeling is that the only time this is debatable is when a player is a genuine “huursoldaat” / mercenary acquired late on in his schooling career specifically for rugby to take advantage of being available for that extra year where greater strength, speed are the expected benefits.

    I firmly believe that any u19 player who wants to pursue a pro rugby career is better off in a union institute/academy/HP set up but I would say that in terms of priorities, if a player has the ability to pass matric, he must stay in school and get that matric certificate first.

    I know of a few kids that failed matric and accepted union contracts and didn’t make it to become senior rugby pros. And now we are hearing of more and more kids who are foregoing their matric year to focus on rugby first. It’s a huge risk but understandably some boys’ are not at an academic standard where they can pass matric and have the opportunity to use the talent given to them.

    ReplyReply
  152. @chief: Nou hoekom dan die opmerkings oor CLF wat eerder in die /19 CC hoort, oor die gesondheid van GW se rugby en hoe die GCB span sou gevaar het met van die /18’s van laas jaar steeds in die span?

    Onvanpas… :roll:

  153. @Rainier:

    Conan “GCB destroyer” ‘n SA skole lid van laasjaar, is dit nie maklik vir so ‘n speler om goed te lyk of nog beter ‘n hele wedstryd te kan beheer nie?

    Grey se O/11 span is below par hierdie jaar en ek is bly hulle kon by julle ‘n toernooi wen. Dit sal die seuns goed gedoen het, daar was maar harde tye vir hulle by die Grey toernooi.

  154. Ek gee net deur wat ek gehoor het.Ek stem ie noodwendig daarmee saam nie maar het my eie redes wat ek telke maal al oor geskryf het daar sal altyd posetiewe en negatiewe argumente hierom wees maar vir nou se die reels did hoe dit werk.Is dit nie ook een van die redes of verskoonings hoekom AHS nie teen Garsies wou speel nie.

    ReplyReply
  155. @chief: Ek moet darem sê dat ek ook nogal die woord “destroyer” aanstootlik gevind het. Ek het vandag ‘n opname van die Grey vs Glenwood wedstryd volledig gekyk. My oordeel is dat dit ‘n uiters harde en fisieke wedstryd was met uitstekende spel aan beide kante. Glenwood was duidelik goed voorberei en het GCB se normale patroon ontwrig. GCB se 10 het volgens my by ‘n paar geleenthede onoordeelkundig geskop. Die druk wat Glenwood toegepas het, het baie daarmee te doen gehad.

    Wat betref Conan Le Fleur, dink ek het die manne dalk verkeerdelik aangeneem daar is ‘n klagte omdat hy nie meer onder 18 is nie. Dit is hoegenaamd nie so nie en ek is seker dit was ook nie jou bedoeling nie. Hy word in elk geval eers Desember 19 jaar oud.
    Alhoewel Le Fleur gister goed was, was die verwysing na “destroyer” dalk oordrewe, maar heel waarskynlik tong- in- die- kies.
    Ek het gister die Interskole in die Paarl gaan kyk. Die intensiteit by die Grey vs Glenwood wedstryd was net so warm soos by die Paarl wedstryd. 2 Fantastiese wedstryde deur 4 baie goeie spanne.
    Ek sou volstaan deur te sê: Geluk Grey en Glenwood. Geluk Boishaai en geluk Gim met julle effort.
    Maak reg vir ‘n GROOT wedstryd op 18/08/2018.

    ReplyReply
  156. @chief: So wat is nou regtig jou issue met Conan ?

    Is dit vir jou n probleem dat hy U19 is of dat hy net te goed is dat hy die hele game kan beheer? A team consists out of 15 players bud 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Dink ek stem saam met @Bush:

    Klink meer na suur druiwe vir my as n bekommernis van hoe en by watter unie hy gaan wees of reeds deel is van

    Ek was by die game en as al die toeskouers vir meer as n uur na die game nog op die veld was en hande skud met mekaar se dit vir my dat daar nie n verloorder was nie en dat jy nie daar was om dit te beleef nie

    Sour grapes that what it is

  157. Okay let me explain it to you dooswyn’s. Growing up Arnie Schwarzwnegger was The Terminator 1, 2 and forever. Arnie was Conan The Barbarian and Conan The Destroyer. Arnie the box office hit in our time. Our hero actor when growing up. You guys have Nataniel Le Roux we had Arnie.
    That is where I came up with the names for CLF. If you still don’t get it. They both have the same name Conan. Is that a little easier for you??????
    Not once have any of you Grey Bloggers acknowledged CLF fantastic game on Saturday. That’s what makes it sad for me, as true GCB OB’s and true rugby lovers you would have tipped your hat to CLF.He was MOM easy on Saturday. I’m not a GW supporter and have never been one.
    Any way well done CLF you were brilliant on Saturday and if they had to select a team from Saturdays two teams, you would be on top of the list.

  159. @Bush: I managed to catch the replay last night. Conan The Barbarian was a true warrior! the pin-point of him as an u19 instead of acknowledging his immense contribution is truly misplaced. Those who have chosen to do so instead of just applauding him and his team mates should hang their heads in shame. Like you I am not a great Glenwood fan, but man I take my hat off to those boys. They are worth every praise they will get for many decades to come.

    Grey supporters, you are better than that.

  160. Managed to get to the Wynberg/Rondebosch match and it was a ding dong affair. Bosch took the lead with just a few minutes on the clock but Wynberg came back and scored in the last minute to win by two points, with the Wynberg kicker making the pressure kick. Felt bad for Bosch as they deserved at least a draw. Managed to catch a few of the age group games. All very competitive and played in a great spirit, including the supporters/parents. All that is good with Schoolboy rugby

  161. @Buddy: @Playa: @Bush: Congrats to Glenwood and Grey for a great game. And to CLF – he showed why he is held in such high regard.
    As a Grey supporter I must say that I agree with the reference to sour grapes. If Grey had won no mention would have been made to him being u.19. I can recall a certain fullback of Grey, HI – who is now playing in France – being u.19 when he played 1st team – and no word was spoken about that.

  163. This was exhausting….for what its worth CLF is my youngest son’s schoolboy rugby hero so in my house he can never put a foot wrong. Very happy he was so good this past weekend. As for the Grey College supporters, just take a page from the book of Monnas. This Glenwood team will be remembered as one of the best….could be the case for Grey College as well, IF…..
