Vories Night Series 2019 – Glenwood, Hilton, Maritzburg College & St Charles in the mix

Preseason at its best – the Vories Night Series will take place on Friday 22 February and Friday 01 March 2019 at Voortrekker High School in Pietermaritzburg. This year the event welcomes Hilton College who will take on Glenwood in a preseason warmup match.

Last year the popular event moved to the university sports fields and although the match evenings drew sizeable crowds, it had a few drawbacks as well, in spite of the huge effort put in. These included traffic jams and food queues.

So its bound to be a nice welcome back to the old stomping ground at Vorieland! Good atmosphere, safe easily accessible parking, a wide variety of food and hopefully an appetite whetter for a good KZN school boy rugby season ahead.

Please note: NO ALCOHOL is permitted. Spectators carrying any vessels containing liquid beverages will also not be granted access into the night series facility. In the interests of safety and security, car boots may be searched at the car park entrance.

  3. @oldschool: Agreed. @sparkie: Yes they did. I seem to remember that DHS were also involved. You have to hope that from a planning perspective that everything is under control :wink:

  4. All is well at Westville. Our squad is looking strong, fit and highly motivated. We’re attending the Glenwood Festival as well as the KES Festival with our opening fixture vs Glenwood in between. Being selective in our pre-season matches will be key to our performance in 2019! Reason being why we’re not attending the Vories Nite Festival.

  5. Vories Nights Series what a fantastic event. Hope that GW and Hilton play in their 1st Team Jerseys and not their stripped ones. Then only can we say a step in the right direction or a total side step.

  6. Very welcomed preparation for the challenging season ahead.

    Coaches will still be testing so no first team caps to be gained.

    Players will have to earn that honour when the full length matches start.

  7. @Tuckshop: That’s what I would have thought this series to be. I think the advertisement should be GW U18/U19 vs Hilton U18/U19. The way it’s written OS has gotten very excited
