  1. Some big KZN opening weekend games…Hilton – DHS; GW – Westville; and College – NWood. Hilton, GW and College favourites for sure, but should get a view as to where some teams may feature this year.

  2. @Skywalker: Hopefully it marks the start of an unpredictable season.

    I think all three games have the potential to be crackers.
    DHS more of a ? without the head coach but lots of experienced players and good backline. Hilton possibly weaker than last year but able to bring an element of physicality which isn’t to DHS liking.

    College stronger than last year. Definitely more options available. Maybe questions about frontrow. So much chopping and changing of the head coach, one wonders what is really College’s brand of rugby these days. So brand new inexperienced coaching team at the helm. Hopefully not thrown into the deep end or allowed to drown. Northwood lots of experience and better game play away from the breakdown means that 1D tag will be gone as they are more of an attacking threat from anywhere on the park now. Experienced head coach who failed the loyalty test but got a second chance. He needs to answer a few questions about his ability to deliver now that he has the team to do it.

    Glenwood probably won’t be anywhere close to as strong as they were last year but on paper still a very good team capable of finishing top in KZN. Head coach really stood out last year. Acid test will be making it happen without as many go-to players. Still evidence from last year suggests coach knows what he’s doing. Westville can’t do worse than last year when injuries killed their campaign (22 injuries spread across top open age group teams at one stage). Boosted by arrival of 3 good imports who have the ability to transform the team. Craven Week coach in charge who gets the double thumbs up from all who’ve worked with him.

  3. Cant wait for the season toe start! Looking forward to some nice battles.
    Good cricket over the weekend! Well done to the winning team.
