  1. Some hot matches this weekend.
    Beet-what’s that Digi Stream thing? I’d really love to catch the Glenwood-Grey game. Should be a cracker.

    Here’s to hoping that Amadoda give Griffy a worthy birthday present on Saturday.

  2. Things are happening in KZN. Two good fixtures:
    Glenwood against Grey. If Glenwood can pull this one off and Grey can beat Paul Roos next week, Glenwood might be the no 1 this year. Should Grey win and beat Paul Roos, Grey will be no 1. Irrespective who wins in Durban, if Paul Roos wins Grey next week, Paul Roos will be no 1. Interesting times ahead.

    Maritzburg vs Kes: Looking forward to this result as well.

  3. Wonder how EG Jansen 1st team will approach their last game of the year against Menlopark seeing that they can’t reach the semis. Menlopark still has an outside chance so they will go hard. IS EGJansen going to play without their grade 12’s and then get a big hiding or are they going to submit a full strenght team for the last time this year. I have no idea. The jnr teams should be great matches.

  4. @MikeSt: ja dit was ‘n baie deurmakeer en teleurstellende seisoen op ‘n manier. En selfs laas jaar se span moes goed gewees het maar dinge nie goed gegaan. Die 2018 griep was eintlik ‘n talentvolle span maar net te veel op en af vertonings gehad die jaar.q Iets kort met motivering of die nuwe coach nog nie sy voete gevind. Hoop EGJ sal hulle voete weer vind voor die jaar se 0/16 groep oor 2 jaar die voortou moet neem vir ‘ moontlike top span weer. Die jnr’s lyk goed

  5. Ek weet glad nie wat om die week te verwag met Oakdale in PE teen Framesby nie.

    Framesby was voor die naweek se verloor teen die Kwaggas nou bo Oakdale gerank deur BHP.

    Laaste wedstryd voor ‘n baie taai uitstappie na Boland se Plaas in die Agter-Paarl vir Interskole!

  6. Grey is a very good team this year but i’m hoping Glenwood can pull off an unbeaten season

  7. The one game I really would have loved to see this weekend is Helpies vs Monnas. It was a big let down that the two schools didn’t have a match last year.

  8. @beet: I am looking forward to the Helpies vs Monnas games on Saturday as well. I am blessed to be able to actually attend this match. Been a helluva build-up among the players (many who were team mates at primary school level) in their private WhatsApps world where the kids function these days….
    Helpies have finally started their month-long winter school holidays yesterday so I suppose the turnout won’t be great, but the rugby should be interesting. The match-up I am looking forward to most of all is the battle for the loose ball. My gut feel is the very underrated Alex Skudder is going to emerge with ball in hand, but we’ll have to see.
    The last game between these two teams was at the 2016 St. John’s Easter Rugby Festival when Helpies shocked many with a 30-15 victory. I think Monnas with their reputable big-name pack are the favorites but this Helpies team has surprised friend and foe this season….

  9. @Quagga: Hi Quagga. So glad to hear that you are able to attend the match and I hope you are on the path to a speedy recovery now.

    I watched Alex Skudder at Craven Week and thought he was great. The battle between him and Tristan Dullisear should be a highlight.

    The Helpies school holidays can’t help their rugby cause that much and spending time away from the classroom to attend national youth weeks must be a disruption to the academic side of school life.

  10. Landbou gaan n handvol wees op Markotter. Dit gaan die beste voorbereiding moontlik wees vir die belangste interskole wedstryd vir 2018 volgende naweek in Bloemfontein.

  11. Garsfontein met meer as 7 teen Transvalia en Transvalia minder as 4 driee. :lol: :lol:
    Helpmekaar en Monnas gaan baie close wees, maar ek tip Monnas.

    Wenne vir Glenwood en Gim!

  12. @Wonder: nee wat EG Jansen se 1ste span motivering is nie reg nie en al die ander spanne het ook voor die vakansie laas saam gespeel. Daarby het Menlopark goeie wedstryde gehad die laaste 2 weke. Hoop ek kan verkeerd wees maar EGJ spanne gaan sukkel more en eerstes gaan redelik ver verloor.

  13. Anyone else trying to watch coverage of the Glenwood/Grey game. Buffering, poor camerawork, etc etc etc

  14. Welgedaan aan Helpmekaar met ‘n 27 – 18 wen teen Monnas. Of sal ons se die uitnodiging span (geen Craven spelers) het teen 1/2e van die leeus cravenweek span gewen (SIC).
    Groot name by Monnas regtig nie beindruk alhoewel hulle verskriklik fisiek probeer wees het. 8e-man het wel goeie runs laat in 2e helfte gehad. Hele Helpmekaar span het hulle deel bygedra. No 15 (Boonzaaier) en slot (Amiras) sowel as 10 was baie goed. Sterkte aan seuns wat veld moes verlaat a.g.v. kop beserings.

  15. Yep hence my earlier question. Such a pity with it being such a big game. Very poor quality

  16. Paarl boys 24 – 21 Paarl Gim. What a game of schoolboy rugby, was on the edge of my seat in the second half. Evan Roos had a huge game

  17. To beat Boishaai, you need a solid 10 and your 2 must find your jumpers ! That was the difference.

  18. Inter schools in Pearl, what a game.Such a pity none of the recognised broadcasters or school sport live didn’t do Glenwood /Grey game . Such a huge game in the season. Hats off to Glenwood on a great season. Would of loved to seem them play the other so called unbeaten Kzn side.

  19. Wil niks wegvat van die Gim/HJS game nie. Maar dinge in Virsekerbeker raak nou warm. Nories 20 – 17 Montana. Dit virseker vir Nories n home semi vs Kempton en Eldoraigne het n home semi vs Marais Viljoen. As ek my somme reg gedoen het is daar nog 2 van Nories se spanne in die semi 14A home vs Montana en 15A speel by Eldoraigne vs Rustenburg.

  20. @Smallies: @PaarlBok: Again out with one point in my prediction…. Damit..!I think the big difference was again like last year a Pta boiki…Well done Ewan…Unfortunately for PRG,Grey will be another cup of tea in Bloem….So PRG will beat Glenwood and Grey with 10 over PRG to be crowned nr 1 for 2018….

  21. Scores from another blog- seems that Menlopark won 56-28 against EG Jansen. Menlopark needed a big win but Garsfontein beat Transvalia only with 2 points therefor it seems that Transvalia got that important bonus point to progress to the semis. Helpmekaar beat Monument and Monnas gets no points but had enough points last week to progress to semis. So Garsfontein, Helpmekaar, Monument and Transvalia in semis seems like it. I mught have it wrong.On another note EGJansen mighty under 16 team drew again against Menlopark for probably the fourth time since u/14. What a tough rivalry between these two teams since under 14.Looks like Menlopark under 16 not progressing to the semis. They needed a win with a bonuspoint.The under 16 competetion in Virseker beker is very tough.

  22. Geluk Bere…wind was erg..GELUK @Rugbyman..absoluut fantasties..nou vir Monnas..tuisveld voordeel…geluk ook aan Bere 0/16 span.

  23. Score sorry Menlopark per another blog. Seems like Menlopark just missing out of a semi final spot due to a bonuspoint Transvalaia got today. For EG Jansen it is back to the drawing board for their first team. A dissapointing uo and down season.Not progressing knockout stages for first time in years. The junior teams seems to all have progressed to top 4.

  24. Congratulations to Boishaai on a well deserved win.

    Congratulations to Glenwood on a well deserved draw.

    Congratulations to Garsies on a good win and keeping the margin to less than 7 points. :mrgreen:

    Congratulations to Nico Malan on a well deserved win against Die Brandwag, 18-14.

  25. Great wen vir Garsies, was kliphard. Hoop al die beseerdes kan Saterdag speel.

  26. See Affies played PTA boys high this weekend. Nobody said a word about this🙁🙁. A few years back this was one of the highlights of SA schoolboyrugby yearly calender. Now it is been played silently in the background.

  27. Good effort from Bosch who came within 2 minutes of pulling the upset against Wynberg (who scored the matchwinning try at the end)! Credit to Berg though for fighting back in 2nd half; wasn’t at the game but heard it was a good one.

    Anyone attend it that could provide some insight??

  28. @jakes: 54-28 met net graad 11 spelers? Nee wat, glad nie sleg teen span met 14 CW spelers in nie. EG sal sterk wees volgende jaar,julle o/16’s is warm.

  29. @jakes: it’s disappointing for Menlo but not the end of the world. Great season for Menlo and we are proud of the Boys.
    It was good to see that the EG grade 12’s did play.

  30. Ek het voordat ek na die Paarl interskole toe gegaan het, eers vir Brakkies teen Hugenote (Wellington) gekyk. Wat n goeie wedstryd was dit nie, met beide spanne wat bereid was om die bal lug te gee, met teen aanvalle te begin ens. Beide spanne se hanteerwerk was ook “awesome” alhoewel balle ook laat val is met oorhaastigheid om die bal te skuif onder druk. Brakkies was op die ou end naelskraaps baas met 18-14, maar Hugenote het ook met groot eeer uit die stryd gekom.
    Wil ook net geluk sê vir beide skole met die gesindheid wat daar geheers het in die wedstryde wat ek gekyk het. Goeie sportmangees bly lekker om te sien.

    Brakkies se interskole ( op hul tuisveld) teen die Tiere van Tygerberg vind op plaas op 25 Augustus. Die wedstryd word ook vir die 1ste keer deur Supersport gebeeldsend, en beide skole is reeds hard aan die werk om die geleentheid spesiaal te maak.
    Die Tiere, net soos Boishaai hierdie naweek, is besig om stoom op te bou , nadat hulle n effense teleurstellende seisoen,volgens hulle standaarde,tot dusver beleef het. Hulle het die naweek baie goeie spel gelewer teen die sterk span van Stellenberg.

    Beide skole spog dan ook nou, benewens hul ander old boys, tans met n paar old boys wat huidiglik groot rugby speel. Die Tiere se Eben Etzebeth en Marvin Orrie is huidige Springbokke terwyl Brakkies se Courtnall Skosan ook n huidige Bok is en natuurlik kan hulle ook spog met die Blitsbok Cheslin Colbie.

  31. @ BoschBoy I was at the match (stood with an old Bosch rugby legend Butch). Bosch withstood the initial Wynberg pressure with some committed defence and created a few opportunities, scoring the first two tries. Wynberg backline were very disjointed with plenty of knockons and charge downs, the fullback who is usually pretty good had a bit of a nightmare. The Bosch right wing was good and I believe recently promoted. Old fashioned speedy wing gave 100% and chased everything which resulted in one of his tries. Wynberg forwards/loosies were good and the difference in the end. Felt bad for Bosch as they deserved at least a draw.

    Bosch under 16a while losing have shown massive improvement and coach Carew has done wonders, Wynberg were pushed pretty close after winning the earlier seasons game easily. The under 14A & B games were also very good, Bosch winning the A by 1 point and Wynberg winning the B but having a lot of the ref calls go their way. Both schools have good under 14 age groups coming through. Both A’s beat Paul Roos this season!

  32. @Kattes-Strofes: Sterkte! Interskole is altyd ‘n ander storie maar glo ek nietemin dat Brakkies redelik gemaklik sal wen. Die Tiere se telling die afgelope naweek vlei hulle so effens…Stellies het een van dáái dae gehad wat hulle omtrent elke denkbare punte geleentheid verbrou het met vorentoe aangeë, oorhaastigheid en balle wat laat val is – een daarvan agter die Tiere se doellyn met geen verdediger in sig nie!

  33. I only watched the Paarl interschools last night. Paarl Gim must still be wondering how, considering the season they had and their play on the day, they lost interschools. Most of the game they were the attacking team playing the best rugby. Boishaai, on the other hand, scored three tries without an proper buildup to one of the tries. Especially the first one- one rip-one pass-wing scores unopposed. Well I suppose as an old Springbok player said, “looks at the scoreboard”. I however prefer the approach of the much wiser John Wooden. For those who don’t know him, he was a basketball coach, and is considered the most successful sporting coach in the history of at least USA sport. He never talked about winning or losing, to him success was about execution in the game. If you lost but played well, he was satisfied and vice versa. Thus in my view Paarl Gim can walk with their heads held high, they were just not fortunate on the day, and Boishaai was.

  34. @Rooikat: Rugby is about much more than just attack with ball in hand. Boishaais execution of their game plan is what won them the game. Their tactical game was to much for Gim.
