The World Schools Festival which did extremely well for a debutant festival in 2018, showed very positive signs of building on that success. Better forward planning has placed the organisers in a position to name nine of the ten overseas teams (Rest of the World) to take part in next year’s festival from 25-30 March 2019 at Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch.

The highlight will no doubt be the four New Zealand teams complete with their personalised school Hakas as well as the unique English school going age sport academy Hartpury from Gloucester in England.

  2. @apple: I know there is no obligation on the side of the organisers to formally notify the schools not re-invited but you’d think that a phone call or email would be sent. Instead Oakdale found out via the grapevine that they would not be part of the WSF fest in 2019.

  4. @Gifappel: In die Paarl. Die Paarl is naas Kaapstad en Stellenbosch een van die drie oudste Europese nedersettings in Suid Afrika. Die dorp het meer as 120,000 inwoners en lê in die provinsie Wes-Kaap, sowat 60km noordoos van Kaapstad, aan die oewers van die Bergrivier en 132m bokant seevlak.

  5. World schools festival has a very powerful connotation but in reality it’s only 5 international schools mixed in with some make shift invitational sides …. did many of the invited over seas schools not accept the invite ? I think Hilton are being short changed here as they play two presumably weak fixtures against make shift sides …. I like the idea of this festival however it needs more actual over seas schools to attend to make it more interesting…..

  7. @Gifappel: Lichtenburg se naam is gekies in 1873 deur die president van die Zuid-Afrikaanse Republiek en beteken “Dorp van Lig”. Waar kom Kakamas se naam vandaan? Jacobus Voorendyk het in 1926 ‘n diamant op sy plaas ontdek en binne 12 maande was daar 108,000 fortuinsoekers op die toneel.

    Lichtenburg was die tuistes van beroemde boereleier Genl. Koos De La Rey asook siener Nicholaas van Rensburg.

Die Duitsers het met ‘n teenaanval gekom en daar het sewe Duitsers gesnewel. hulle het toe teruggetrek. Ek wil nogals sien hoe val jy die grote Namibië binne in 1915 met 6000 man.

  18. @Grizzly: the punch bowl is an historical JNR cricket field at House which has now been converted to a second Astro …..

    ReplyReply
  19. @Grizzly: Yeah its incredible. Kearsney also did a boarding establishment expansion recently and this year had their highest intake of gr.8’s ever (I was told).

    Michaelhouse and to a lesser extent Kearsney had issues with putting together u14 rugby teams last year. House only had 2 proper u14 teams but had 4 u14 hockey teams, while KC seem to get by with a 3:3 split. So not the best ratios as far as rugby is concerned. Kearsney seem to have a trend of converting hockey players to rugby players in higher age groups. House has always had high % of Gauteng based kids (or imports as one oke around here terms gr 8 students from out of province :-D ) and has had a lot of success in developing a good number of boys who didn’t play rugby at all at primary school into decent rugby players. But I imagine the hockey trend is here to stay. Schools may have to get use to fielding just 2 rugby teams per junior age group and the extra astro will be handy.

  26. @Smallies: Smallies, die toernooi behoort nie aan PRG nie. PRG verskaf slegs die venue. Carinat is gebasseer in Hong Kong en besit al die regte vir die toernooi. Dit is dus nie PRG se keuse wie die streaming hanteer nie. Nie eers watter stalletjies by die veld sal wees nie. Maak net seker van jou feite.

  31. Ek dink dat daar nou soveel top toernooie in SA ( Wildeklawer ,Noord Suid) ens ,ens is dat dit baie van hierdie toernooi se glans weg vat . Alhoewel hierdie veronderstel is om ‘n internasionale toernooi te wees vat niks die passie weg van wanneer ons tradisionele ” vyande ” mekaar aanvat nie . Gee my veel eerder ‘n Grey vs Monnas of ‘n Gim vs Affies ens game as afgewaterde streek span . Dit is natuurlik goed om jou self te kan meet teen oorsese spanne en daarom is toere so lekker want dit bou ook span gees etc . Die ” timing ” van die toernooi is duidelik goed met nie vreeslik ander kompetisie in die Wes Kaap nie so dit behoort goed ondersteun te word

    ReplyReply
  32. Die Wildeklawer en die Noord Suid Toernooie is twee van die top twee Skole Toernooie in die wêreld. Volgens my is dit waar die top skole in Suid-Afrika gemeet en bepaal word.

    ReplyReply
  37. Boerboel: Ek stem 100% saam met jou. In die perfekte wêreld sal dit die idiale Toernooi wees.

    Hier is my redes hoekom ek so groot voorstander van die Wildeklawer en die Noord Suid Toernooie is:

    1) Albei Toernooie skep geleenthede om teen skole te speel waarteen jy nie gewoonlik sou speel nie.

    2) Die Wildeklawer se Junior Toernooi maak dit eintlik ń Derby dag tussen die skole, terwyl die Noord Suid geleentheid aan tweede span Spelers bied om speelkans op “toer” te kry waar hul onder normale omstandighede net tyd langs die swembad in die vakansie sou deurbring.

    3) Die kanse is ook groot dat die skole in die Noordvaal meer as een keer in ń seisoen kragte teen mekaar kan meet bv. Monument wat vriendskaplike wedstryde teen Tranvalia en Menlopark speel en dan weer teen albei in die Virseker Beker Liga speel. Indien die skole onder die boonste vier skole eindig kan hul vir ń derde keer kragte meet in die uitspeelwedstryde.

    4) Persoonlik dink ek enige Speler in die Noordvaal-streek sal eerder teen ń Grey College, Paarl Boys, Paarl Gim of Paul Roos wil speel (ongeag die uitslag) as om te sê hul het teen ń Uitnodiging-span (plaaslik of internasionaal) gespeel of drie keer teen dieselfde skool gespeel.

    Dit is wat die Interskole so spesiaal maak. Boys High en Gim kry net een geleentheid om daardie jaar se “bragging rights” te bepaal. Ongeag wat die res van die seisoen se uitslae sê …

  44. @Spiekeries: All the Invitational teams are due to the character of the supposed “founder”! An extreme micro manager whose sole focus is turnover & not strength vs Strength. A year after the Inaugural event you cannot tell me that you can’t improve quality of the teams involved. Today there are 5 invatational teams vs 2 last year. I heard opinions of senior Roos management they were only interested & adamant they were solely responsible for supplying a venue to Carinat. Day 1 & 3 has basically same match ups…. Looks like Gim aren’t happy with event after seeing their seccies played today.

In aggenome dat Affies se hele reserwebank begin het moes hierdie ten minste ‘n 60 punter opgesit gewees het. Ek dink dat die Noord-Suid ‘n beter prestige toernooi is as die World Rugby Schools, ten minste wat die teenstand en kyk genot aanbetref.

  49. Boland Landbou vs Napier Boys definitely providing the best entertainment during the festival thus far!

    ReplyReply
  50. Sounds like a cracker between BL and Napier.

    I don’t really see the point in denigrating this festival, or any festival for that matter. They all, for the most part, achieve the objective of allowing the boys to meet rugby players from other parts of the country or the world, play in front of large (mostly) crowds and share in the brotherhood of rugby. Even Noord-Suid and Wildeklawer produced a few large hidings.

    That said, I think that the mixed/all-star teams should be limited to one from SA and one from overseas. The organisers should be encouraged to source very strong schools, or strong u19 club teams from overseas. For example, it’s a pity that San Isidro (an u19 club team I think) from Argentina are not playing in this festival, as they are in SA at the moment and have just beaten Oakdale, KES and Bosch and had a very narrow loss v Glenwood.

  53. @PaarlBok: Last year’s tournament coincided with HJS’s 150th and a 3-year unbeaten run for the home 1st team, plus it was the first year of the tournament. Therefore, there was a lot more hype in 2018 and consequently, more spectators. Furthermore, the lopsided scores of many of the games from last year might have driven the spectators away from this year’s festival.

    That said, the marketing has been poor this year. Indeed, the start times of the games were not produced until about a week ago, which makes it very difficult for people to plan properly.

    Hulle het al 4 wedstryde gespeel, en 2 (Garsies en Welkom Gim) het met minder as 30 verloor, Menlo met 31 en Duineveld 39
    Dus sover 50% van hul teenstand onder 30 gewen.
    Ek dink dit sal 50% bly, …Gim, HJS, PRG, Affies,Glenwood,Grey PE, Oakdale, Selborne Outeniqua etc wat wag…hulle gaan nie omrol en le nie…en sou baie uit Menlo/Grey game geleer het.

  77. More manne,

    Paul Roos, Paarl Gim en Grey College lyk feitlik onstuitbaar.

    Die toernooi se kykersgetalle stel teleur en ek kry die gevoel dat daar baie mense is wat nie eers weet van die toernooi wat aan die gang is nie, ek mag verkeerd wees.

    Daar was in die omgewing van so 24 000 kaartjies oor die 4 dae laas jaar vir die betrokke toernooi verkoop volgens my bronne.

    Ek sien uit na n paar liplekker plaaslike wedstryde wat oppad is. Grey vs Gim, Prg vs Gim, Grey vs Prg en natuurlik HJS ook teen die betrokke spanne soos genoem,

    Helpmekaar spel vir my n baie mooi ‘brand’ van rugby, jy kan sien hulle is goed afgerig en ek sal hulle met groot belangstelling dophou soos die seisoen vorder.

If SA school sides can produce such talent why cant we do the same in our senior rugby? or is it SA schools teams are based mostly on merit?

  84. @Vyfster: Grey Pe sal nie sommer nie. Hulle speel nie genoeg rerige groot games nie.
    1. Paul Roos
    2. Grey College
    3. Selborne
    Hulle stel nie belang in Wildeklawer nie nadat hulle groot pakslae gevat het teen Affies en Outeniqua in die 1 jaar wat hulle gegaan het.
    Hulle sal goed wees maar nie sommer top 5 nie.

  85. @Knight: ja, maar dink as hulle 1ste 2 verras, onwaarskynlik but you never now.
    Het hulle nie 2 of 3 jaar Gelede PRG in Stellenbosch Verras nie .

  86. @Knight: Framesby lyk ook sterk vanjaar…hulle speel darem vir Helpies, Menlo, Drostdy, Grey, Marlow, , Oakdale en Outeniqua
    Het Klaar vir DHS Verwoes met 50, Hudson Park met 60, Queens met 40
    Sal .n goeie aanduiding gee van sterkte van Oos Kaap skole, maar ek het gevoel daardie 2 spanne Moet nie onderskat word nie

  87. @Vyfster: ek dink dat Selborne op die stadium gemaklik die sterkste skool is in die oos kaap, met Framesby Grey high marlow Saints en Dale wat sake sal uit spook vir die res

  88. @Vyfster: I remember chatting to a father of a Framesby u15 player at the Grey PE fest in 2016, who said that they had beaten GCB the year before, so if they’ve kept the same team together, Framesby should have a very strong 1st team this year. Maybe the best in the E Cape.

    @Smallies: Selborne have already lost to Jeppe in PE this year, so I don’t think that they will be particularly strong this year. I think that the strongest 1st teams in the E Cape this year will be St Andrews, Framesby and Grey PE.

  90. It is so difficult just to watch the live stream, I am still trying to watch the glenwood game, this not fair, I mist the live stream of the first Glenwood game. Can you please respond.

  91. @McCulleys Workshop: House will probably give them a hiding, as the top few players are playing for the International team in the world School’s Festival at PRG. This does not appear to be a strong year for St Alban’s, so loisng their top players will make matters worse.

  92. As ek kyk na die teleurstellende toeskouergetalle hierdie jaar by die fees vs laasjaar se rekordgetalle wat in die Paarl was, vermoed ek die Boishaai manne wat hierdie jaar ‘gesnub’ was, kry stil stil lekker. Why fix something if it aint broke?

    ReplyReply
  93. @Koning: How do you arrive at a record in your first year? I don’t think your assessment is accurate. Part of the attraction last year was HJS 150, the tourno was new and well marketed, and it seems more competitive foreign sides were included. It has nothing to do with HJS or PR, or who was included or who snubbed it, apparently. That’s just how big is my stick from the Klapmuts Hotel kroeg. I’m not sure the tourno is well considered, marketed nor whether it should exist in its current format, or at all.

  94. @Carl de Kock: The human psyche is an amazing thing. A team with players of color does well… We say they’re picked on merit. When they do badly, it’s because of the quota system. I wonder what your thoughts would have been if that unbeaten HJS side with 7 players of colour had achieved the opposite by losing all their games.

    It’s not the quota system that’s killing rugby, it’s picking undeserving players. And this applies to black and white players.

  95. @McCulleys Workshop:You are correct in some ways . More than 21,000 visitors attended last year and now hardly 500 -1,000 a day so perhaps 6,000 if they are lucky .Last year the HJS’S passion for this event played a major role including the reason why some sponsors were part of it It had a lot to do with HJS and the goodwill to its 150 celebration . I cannot see it surviving . I am a big Affies fan and I want them to do well in the 100 year celebration but this event clearly will not be a great launch pad for it .

  96. If somebody tells a selector in any team sport , to make a decision based on anything else but merrit , he 99% of the time wil have to pick UNDESERVING! players ( black or white) we can figure out for ourselves to the advantage or disadvantage of who.

  97. Duidelik 3 skole spanne in 2019 , Grey college, paul roos en paarl gim kop en skouers bo die res. Miskien kan nog 1 of MISKIEN! 2 ander ook kompeterend wees in hul geselskap.

    ReplyReply
  98. @Smallies: Is so , maar Daardie drie sal mekaar moontlik kan wen, dan dink ek van 4-10 behoort op die dag met nekaar te kan kompeteer. Geen volg orde Groep 2: helpmekaar, boishaai, monnas, Groep 3 garsfontein, boland landbou, outeniqwa, glenwood,menlo, affies. Jeppe behoort die jaar n billike span te kan kies. Affies gaan die jaar hulle ware AFFIEGUTS moet wys teen de opponente wat hul teen speel.

  100. @Playa: Dit gaan nie oor kleur nie maar oor wetgewing wat posisies reserveer vir spelers van kleur. As die beste 15 almal swart is en die span op meriete gekies is sal die span ondersteun word. Maar o wee, wat as die beste meestal wit is….? Net in SA sal posisies gereserveer word (getalle geys). Wonder wat sal die wêreld sê as bv die Franse regering more aankondig dat die Sa beleid op sy sokkerspan toegepas word en 80% van die span uit wit etniese Franse moet bestaan? Nee wat @Playa: , Ek dink nie jy het n punt nie

  104. @Skoorsteen: That’s my point. I can name 6 white players in the Bok side that are not the best in their positions. And all 6 can be replaced by 6 better white players. What do we call that? And yet our scape goat will be the poor 5 black okes in the team. Then we say quotas are the problem.

    Kleur is die problem. Let’s not be shy about it. It’s evident and glaring.But it’s only a problem when convenient for some. That’s when it hurts my balls and Bush’s cycling arse

  107. @Playa: No, as long as legislation is used to force players of coulor in, I can never agree. Weather it is the fiasco not so recent in school athletics, or prominent Afrikaans schools kicked out of the T20 cricket, as long as legislation exist, you do not have a point

  108. @Playa: 100% most of which will be boys who’s parents have some influence within the school like parents on the school board, sponsors boys, and mostly boys whose fathers were pro players. I have seen it many times, and in all likelihood wont change.

  109. @Wondermaar: Stem saam. Ek dink die Helpmekaar “dream team” het vir die eerste keer in jare ‘n meer as realiistiese kans om Affies te klop. Ons sal Saterdag sien, maar Ek dink die een gaan Helpies vat.

  110. @Skoorsteen: Ek dink wie ook al ons in die een ondersteun, Helomekaar sal swak doen indien hul hom nie met 20 + vat nie. ( want dan is hulle ook nie top 5,6,7,8 materiaal nie. ( but maybe with a team of boys getting together with proud AFFIEGUTS can be dangerous to underestimate?????

  111. @Falcon22: Which game were you watching😬😬😬😬Final Score 22-21 to Hammies. What a great day of good Derby Day Club Rugby. If you think the Midlands Refs and MJ are something to talk about. Come to Hammies, even my Dassie was upset with the ref.

    ReplyReply
  112. @Skoorsteen: Legislation being there is one thing. Implementation is another. My point is simply that quotas are a small part of the problem, if a problem at all, when it comes to underperformance.

    We forget that SA struggled post reads mission from 92 to 94.Saved by Kitch Christie and the 95 world cup. Then struggled again from 96 till Nick Mallet came in at the end of 97.This was all before quotas.

    To now blame underperformance on quotas is utter rubbish. History will tell you where the problem is.

  113. @Wondermaar: Helpies baie sterk hierdie jaar, met tuisveld voordeel. Affies is verseker die underdogs vir die game. Ook baie maklik om teen Affies se een dimensionele spel te verdedig.

    I haven’t met Bush – I saw a picture of him and AndreT a few years ago, when the latter posted one on this site.
