Eastern Cape’s finest Grey High & Selborne to meet for the 50th time

The only two unbeaten teams in local interschools derby matches within the borders of the Eastern Cape will meet on Saturday 03 August 2019 to decide who gets crowned the number one team in the province in 2019. In 49 previous encounters they have never produced a draw.

  1. So glad to see other derbies as well, except for the one in Paarl. The way the guys are going on I almost believed the Paarl match-up is the only (and the best one) to be played Saturday.
    I am going to enjoy this one – as for the players it is probably the one they looked forward to for most of the year.

  3. @Smallies: Agree, for Grey and Selborne this is as important as the Paarl derby.
    I, for one, is more interested in this match than all the hype in the Paarl, where everything tends to be commercialised.

  5. @Djou: Paarl interskole is defnitief nie verniet “gekommersialiseerd” nie. Dit kom vanaf ‘n ryke tradisie tussen twee wonderlike skole (wat toevallig ook al vir meer as ‘n eeu rugby kragte in SA is) wat beide ouer as 150jr is en al 104 amptelike interskoles teen mekaar gespeel het met ‘n gemiddelde wedstryd telling wat met omtrent 3 punte verskil oor al daardie jare en ‘n min of meer 50/50 wen/verloor ratio.

    Ek glo elke interskole is ewe belangrik en groot vir elkeen betrokke by die skole, en dat daar ‘n handjievol interskoles in SA is met soortgelyke “statistieke”, maar daar is darem ‘n rede hoekom daar ‘n “storie” van die Paarl se interskole gemaak word as jy bogenoemde in ag neem :-)

    Baie geluk aan Gim met vandag se oorwinning. Die telling vlei beslis vir Boishaai vandag! Volgende jaar is ‘n nuwe jaar :-)

  6. @Playa: I would call it Selborne in 2nd. (Specially if their full complement plays) Both St Andrews and Framesby played well this year. Pity they did no go up against each other this season.

  7. @bokbal: Measured by age and number of spectators, the Boishaai and Gim match dominates.
    But really, to commercialise everything, meaning other institutions making it a money thing for everybody, but the schools? Put differently, many other institutions are trying to make money from it.

  8. @Djou: Agreed, but don’t let that take anything away from the schools and their long standing tradition, neither the boys and what it means to them.

  9. @Sakkie: Tough one considering St Andres drew against Grey. Neither here nor there I guess.
    Real pity indeed St Andrews and Framesby don’t play each other. It would have been a humdinger this season.
