  1. @flanker16: I’m aware of those teams and their outstanding achievements. Without being disrespectful to them or the other 1st XVs that have gone through the season unbeaten during the period under consideration, the list is intended to be restricted to schools that have or are challenging for SA no 1. Perhaps I have to emphasis that a bit more.

  3. Glenwood did not play one the 3 top Winelands schools.they are unbeaten in Natal-that is it.

    should not be mentioned with the rest

  4. @boerboel: You may want to check the facts before posting – in 17 games, they have only played against 4 KZN schools – 5 games in total. Winelands schools, good as they are, are not the yardstick to greatness. Glenwood has had a phenomenal season, that is it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with just giving credit where it’s due.

  5. @Smallies: @Playa: He will for convenience sake go of topic so the light he chooses to shine only on HJS can dim on Glenwood.We know that PRG is the Yardstick and the result on the 18th between Grey and them will put in perspective what fantastic season Glenwood had….

  6. @boerboel:

    Volgens statistiek sal Glenwood vir Boishaai klop met 14 punte op julle tuis veld. 😂 Miskien was dit ‘n goeie ding dat julle nie Glenwood by Wildeklawer ontmoet het nie.

  7. @boerboel:Ja dit is jammer want ek dink Glenwood sou die jaar maklik koning gekraai het.Dis regtig n goeie span die almal speel goed met min uitblinkers.

  8. Definitive one of the top 3 in country.
    to beat (some with massive scores) the likes of Drostdy, Affies, Monnas, HTSM, Stellenberg, Kearsney, Maritzburg, Dale, Waterkloof, DHS etc….most with very big scores and then draw with Grey Bloem is excellent. They deserve all the accolades

  9. Congrats Glenwood – a great season. Glenwood have had some very good, some good and some mediocre seasons in the past five to ten years, but finally a great season. I am not close to the inner machinations at Glenwood, but I can think of two differences this year:

    1. No major controversy this year – e.g. no headmaster accused of fraud; no poaching SBR players for a festival only (in fact no poaching at all); no 23 year old SBR players; no breakdown of relationship with other schools (who refuse to play them), etc, etc. Therefore, I suspect that the ‘gees’ was stronger.

    2. No Grassy to rabbit on and on during the preseason about this being Glenwood’s year…and thus put the kiss of death on the team! :lol: :lol: Only joking Grassy…come back and gloat all you like! 8))
