  2. Dankie Beet,
    dit is goed om weer te hoor van jou.
    Vertrou dat jy en gesin ook gesond en veilig is en was.

    Onttrekking simptome – dit is wat ons almal seer sekerlik nog tans onderlede het na die hele petalje.

    Ek glo ons almal sien baie uit na enige rugby in Suid-Afrika tans en kan nie wag vir die opkomende “Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked” kompetisie asook die Curriebeker later vanjaar nie.

  6. @Smallies: Dit is baie tragies en groot terugslag vir Cheetahs . Net nie seker wat ander opsies was nie . Probleem is dat die saamgestelde spanne ( onthou die Cats ) net nie werk nie . Maar Cheetahs verdien dit nie om so behandel te word nie.

    ReplyReply
  7. @Smallies – Hoe jy ook al daarna kyk, erens gaan daar altyd n verloorder wees. Kon SARU nie geprobeer het om al 5 spanne Noordelike Halfrond toe te gevat het nie?

    En om nou weer n verdere afgewaterde toernooi te reel vir die ander 8 spanne in die Suidelike halfrond klink net na n onnodige gemors van tyd en veral kostes. Maar ek besef ook hul moes n alternatief daar gestel het vir sekere spanne wat dit nie gemaak het nie.

    ReplyReply
  8. @Smallies: Ek stem saam met jou. As SARU gesê het die beste 4 spanne gaan PRO16 speel, was dit miskien meer aanvaarbaar, maar om sommer net die Cheetahs weer weg te gooi, is belaglik!!!

  11. @Ooorkant Loftus: Thank you. Much appreciated. I’m all good. I hope everyone is keeping well.

    Agree that first prize would a Pro17 which includes the Cheetahs.

    Having the Cheetahs as a stoandalone SA representative in the Super Rugby tournament would be a logistical death sentence. The team would have to spend a great deal of time in Aus/NZ.

  12. @Smallies: Mens kan net jou kop vir die nàrre skud.Die rugby fabriek van SA kom elke keer terugslae van SARU ten bowe.Daar gaan n dag kom waar hulle resources op droog en hulle nie meer kan nie ..niemand dink aan die gevolge nie…..

  13. Volgens n paar bloggers het Gym n monster span gehad laas Jaar,ona Strepie as ek reg kan onthou.

    Garsies weet ek sou self laas Jaar n Baie goeie span in die veld kon stoot.Soos reeds gese het 10 van hulle bul kontrak gekry.

    Ek belowe ek het absoluut geen maar geen idee hoe die span hierdie seisoen lyk nie.As enige iemand oor die spanne,enige spanne se sterkte kan berig sal dit wardeer word.

  15. @boerboel: Gaan kyk na die “rankings” van 2019. Die 0/16 en 0/15 groepe, van 2019, is vanjaar die 0/19 groepe. Dit gee ‘n relatiewe idee van die verwagte sterkte van die spanne, alhoewel dit onderworpe is aan twyfelagtige statistiese modelle en vooroordele.

    In elk geval. Ek is so bly rugby gaan weer begin op skole vlak. Lyk my die span wat ek ondersteun is in vir ‘n ding. Volgens Boerboel speel hulle reeds volgende week teen twee “top tien” spanne nl Affies en Garsfontein. Daarna volg Paul Roos en Grey. Ons sal maar moet sien hoe dinge uitspeel. Niemand weet regtig hoe sterk en goed voorbereid die spanne is nie.Go Bulle!!!!

  18. Oakdale gaan moeilik geklop word die jaar.
    Die rumour is dat Oakdale vir Paarl Gim lelik getrap het in hulle opwarmings game.
    Kwaggas met hulle groot pak gaan sterk wees en die drie dominante manne Grey, Paarl Gim en HJS gaan uitstekend wees.
    Buiten vir Affies teen Welkom Gim sie ek nie n enkele eerste span wen vir noord teen suid nie.
    Ek dink werklik Suid gaan die jaar alles wen.

  19. Speel Menlo slegs 1 wedstryd by Noord/Suid?

    Kan ons die wedstryde iewers live stream as jy nie DSTV het nie ?

    @gatskop ek wil met jou verskil ek sien so paar wenne vir Noord. Indien ek wel die ligging reg verstaan.
    My call
    Eg wen Welkom Gim
    HTS Middelburg wen Duineveld
    HTS Middelburg wen Stellenberg

    Hierdie HTS Middelburg span het mos die O/16 Virsekerbeker gewen met n paar punte teen Noordheuwel. Dalk kan Noordheuwel vir Durbanville ook klop. En as Outeniqua speel soos hulle Saterdag gespeel het sal Helpmekaar ook n kans kan he. Verder dink ek jys reg, suid vat die beker huistoe manne.

  20. EG Jansen have come here to jol today. Not sure you going to see them play a much better 1st half than that in terms of intensity, variation and tempo

    ReplyReply
  21. EG down a few notches down in the second half but still really good. Welkom Gim went backwards from the HJS game.

    ReplyReply
  22. Its hard to pinpoint the one area where Gim are exceptional. They have a good balance between forwards and backs and just seem able to bring a never-ending intensity in all facets of play. They generate good front-foot ball and their backs focus on quality passes ahead of blinding speed. Most of their players looked like they have filled out. They have bodies that look more like men than teenagers. This upperbody strength counts for a lot in their playing patterns and on defence.

    Garsfontein have to lay better platforms to give themselves a chance. They look like they have exciting players out wide and the distributors to create something but they just can’t seem to get the time to come up with better structure.

    ReplyReply
  23. Beet you nailed it. I cant see why Gim is so good, but they sure are exceptional in everything they do.
    Well done boys.

  24. Wow…….. Paarl Gim was next level vandag teen Garsfontein… Well done boys.

    ReplyReply
  25. Unreal score 84-0 to Gim and Garsies are by no means what you would call a weak team. Different type of performance. Have seen Grey College with superior conditioning, play high tempo and run teams off their feet. Gim are just physically too strong to handle. Liam Koen had plenty of good ball to work with but there is little to doubt his pedigree. His decision-making and execution is near perfect, not to mention his exceptional boot. It looks like he is going to go a long way in rugby.

  26. HT Stellenberg 22-12 Monument. An interesting second half awaits. So far the old adage about having a good schoolboy rugby backine over a dominant pack applies here. Stellies used this lethal weapon to put Helpmekaar away and have found used it to great effect to advance the scoreboard in this half. One star player in 12. On the reverse side Monnas have lacked team cohesion. They need to calm down and focus, focus, focus on the strong points in their game and try to exploit the weaknesses in their opponents’ game. The way the first half ended will give them confident. Their no 6 is the go-to player.

    ReplyReply
  27. Wow…. What a game. Well done both Monnas and Stellenberg.
    Stellies was just to good in the end…well coached and well conditioned.

    ReplyReply
  28. Stellenberg 34-33 Monument Monnas took control of the second half with composed play, using their assets. Both props were good contributors and hulk putting aside his Marvel commitments to play no8 for the Witbulle really came to prominence. It really looked like only one team were going to win as it was Stellenberg who were panicking like Monnas did in parts of the first half. In the action-packed ending, Stellenberg defied the odds to score a late try and repeat the feat of the 2nd XV that also won by a single point. Inside centre Markus went from hero to zero and back to hero in a rollercoaster ride but he was the difference-maker in the game and should have been player of the match. Well done to the JADE BRIGADE.

  29. Oakdale in full control against Affies at halftime. This is the Oakdale team that only lost twice coming up through the age-groups. They have lost 4 players from that team who have left the school but they are still on fire. Before the match I thought Affies having a competitive match under the belt would serve them well but it has been Oakdale who have played with far better understanding and execution. A generational team for Oakdale vs perhaps one of Affies weaker sides. Very difficult to see what Affies can do to turn things around apart from hope Oakdale runs out of steam. HT score 29-9 to the Oakdale “Blou” Bulle.

    ReplyReply
  30. That big pack of forwards from Monument is not paying of the dividends they thought they would achieve. Trying to bulldoze their opponents but just not getting their game going. Any team like Stellenberg who do not stand back with their forwards against Monnas, while feeding a potent backline, will give the mighty Monnas a tough time. Well done Stellenberg.

    ReplyReply
  31. What happened to Garsfontein today. Paarl Gim probably have their best team in years, brilliant performance, but putting up 80 points against Garsfontein who had some powerful teams the last few years, the margin is too big. I think Garsies had a win over Paarl Gim in the Noord Suid just a few years back

    ReplyReply
  32. Affies needed a better second half and produced it with much improved play, making it into a good contest to watch. Oakdale may not end up as the top school team this year but based on this performance they quite possibly have the best player in SBR in their no. 9 Neil le Roux. The Affies 9 was good and represents the standard we are used to but the Oakdale was absolutely brilliant on the evening. A very good 6 in the Oakdale team as well amongst several other standouts in the match. Final score 46-21 to Oakdale.

  34. @beet: for me the standout were the 8! That boys skill level are much more superior than every 8 I have seen since Monnas start. The 8 of Grey not even close, that normally happen when you try to make a player something else! A sprinter and a 3000m athlete is not the same. :wink: :wink:

  35. @jakes: stem saam! Monnas het BAIE werk oor! Werwing is een ding, skills, speel en afrigting iets anders. Moet ook sê, die Monna groep gaan bymekaar kom. Ek glo dit. Sterkte Wit Bulle! Leeus het julle nodig.

    ReplyReply
  36. @Arend: I cannot disagree with you about his ability. I was saying to a mate that when you recruit players for after school, the Oakdale no.8 is exactly the type of player a union should look to invest in. He is big and mobile.

    We live in a country that produces many excellent big loose-forwards. I don’t know that we produce that many scrumhalves of the highest order. If the Oakdale player plays like that every game, he is surely one of the best rugby players in the world for his age.

  37. After watching the first two games of Paarl Gim … that is not a SBR team, that is a professional team that will give the Varsity Cup teams a run for their money.

    How many 0/19’s in the respective 2021 teams? Will be interesting to know.

    Well done to EGJ on a very good performance especially in the first half.

    Oakdale my team of the day … they showed a lot of skill and attitude.

    All the best to Menlo against Grey College later today!

  38. @boerboel: Jy sal blykbaar weer moet dink oor jou voorspelling vir die jaar se Top 10. Ek sê glad nie Oakdale gaan Top 10 wees nie, maar dit lyk ook nie op die stadium of Affies, Monnas, Garsfontein of Helpmekaar Top 10 spanne is nie. Paarl Gim moet die vroëe voorloper wees as no 1 kanidaat.

  41. Durbanville’s backline were sublime against Marais Viljoen who are new to the VB Cup having been promoted at the end of 2019. It was a no contest for most of the match. Two u19 players who joined from other schools were unbelievably good in this match. No.11 scored 6 tries and I’m sure the viewer’s choice for MotM with the flyhalf in second place. Numerous other Durbies backs also excelled. MV were without their talented first choice 9 and 10, who are part of SA cricket at the moment, so they should be stronger when the VB Cup starts in the 2nd term. Final score Durbanville 85 Marais Viljoen 8

    ReplyReply
  45. A bit of a scrappy game between Outeniqua and Helpmekaar. Outeniqua looked like the better team throughout but needed a bit of luck and opportunism to create big difference on the scoreboard. Centre Simeon Oosthuizen had a remote control to regulate the bounce of the ball and scored a hat-trick from plays that on a different day might have seen him come away emtpy handed. He was one of the better players on the pitch though. Two matches in and Helpmekaar are still looking to find constructive higher percentage play form. As difficult as things seemed at times, it was encouraging to see HMK play to the end. 41-14

    ReplyReply
  46. It was back to business for Grey against a resilient Menlopark team. Grey tried to up the tempo and their conditioning started to show up more in the second half. They scored a number of tries and each one seemed to show the variation they have in their play. With that variation came shared responsibility so although certain players stood out during parts of the match, they were able to count on different personnel to help create or finish opportunities. Menlo struggled to get their own attacking game going but they did disrupt a lot of things Grey tried to get right and the Grey boys will know they had a tough physical match even though the scoreboard might not suggest it. Final score Grey 51-19 Menlo.

    Well done MenloBoys teen een van SBR se SuperPowers. Menlo forwards het hulle man gestaan wat goed lyk vir die res van die seisoen. Tot aan die einde probeer en druk ook die laaste drie wat nie sommer gebeur teen Grey.

    Well done Menlo seccies wat ook tot die einde probeer en ook die laaste drie teen Grey druk.

  48. Wow, it’s amazing how the tide has turned. Ten years ago, the groot kannonne from Noordvaal were evenly matched with the powerhouse schools from the Cape Province. However, the latter have subsequently pulled away from the former to reach the current Grand Canyon divide. Does anyone have any ideas why that has happened? I think that the decline of Affies (plus them pulling out of the Beeld) and the infighting amongst many of the top rugby schools in Pretoria have not helped. Also, the economic decline of the country district powerhouses like Nellies and HTS has not helped their rugby programmes.

    As mentioned in a separate article by beet earlier this week, the Free State schools have also declined significantly…other than Grey, who remain the national benchmark of rugby pedigree in most seasons.

  49. @Vleis: Vleis i think its got more to do with mass participation.
    If you dont have at lest 6 or 7 o/19 teams thats actively coached and you dont have a culture of sports participation thing will slowly go backwards untill you only have strong A teams and 2 strong o/19 teams.
    Its a deadly state of mind that is taking over so many schools. The secret source that makes a school great is not having a great sports program or great academic program or culture program…. Its getting every kid to buy into participating in every aspect. Suddenly kids are proud of their schools…
    So many schools dont get that.

  50. @Smallies: Jannie is outstanding coach and Grey will without any doubt continue to improve. Form is temporary, class is permanent.

    ReplyReply
  51. @Gatskop: Yes, I think that is a valid point in many instances. It does not apply to schools like Affies, which encourages mass participation. That is one of the reasons why Affies plays KES, Jeppe, Glenwood, Maritzburg, etc, as those schools also encourage mass participation and so can provide games for most of Affies’ teams.

    Another point (raised by my wife 8-O :lol: ) is that the Cape schools are mostly boarding schools, which have been in a much better position to ameliorate the impact of Covid on sport. Let’s see how the Noordvaal schools perform in a month. I’m sure that we will see much improvement.

  54. @vleis @gatskop not true.
    Affies has a hostel, menlo has a hostel, garsies has a hostel, monnas has a hostel, Noordheuwel has a hostel, waterkloof(not playing) has a hostel, Helpmekaar has a hostel, HTS Middelburg has a hostel, and EG has a rugby house. So only Marais Viljoen currently playing in Noord/Suid does not have a hostel.

    ReplyReply
  57. @kantako: Yes, but there is a big difference between a school that offers a bit of boarding compared to one that is a boarding school. My eldest daughter was a boarder at St Mary’s (Jhb) and her cousins were boarders at DSG (Grahamstown) and their respective boarding experiences were completely different. I suspect that the Noordvaal schools on your list are predominantly day schools that offer a bit of boarding, while the Paarl schools are either boarding schools, or have a strong boarding school culture. On your list, I suspect that only Affies (and maybe HTS?) would be regarded as a proper “boarding school”….so given their great history and facilities, I’m sure that they will return to being a national rugby powerhouse with the right focus in future. Also, a strong Affies will improve the Noordvaal in general.

  73. Strepie. Daar was jare wat Hugenote, Heidelberg Volkskool, Tom Naude, pietersbrug, HTS Springs en selfs Stofeberg goed was en admin bekers gewen het. Ongelukkig kan jy nie jou skool optel en skuif nie, en die omgewing waar jou skool gelee is speel n groot rol. Die Kaapse skole is baie bevoorreg dat daar wynplase rondom die omgewing is, wie se seuns lankal nie meer op skool is nie maar steeds sorg dat die area gesogd bly. Maar die omgewing laat toe dat die skool met sy koshuis nog goeie spelers kan trek. Natuurlik saam met die tradisie en geskiedenis en ek self gaan my dogter na die Top skool in Paarl stuur. Maar ongelukkig het Hugenote en Heidelberg en Pietersburg ens se omgewing verswak weens verskeie redes. Die omgewing brei nie uit nie en daar kom nie nuwe bloed nie, so waar moet daardie skole top spelers kry om nog op hoogste vlak te speel. Slefs HTS Vereniging en HTS springs speel nie eers meer rugby nie en hulle was twee top skole.
    Gim se Bokke (Pieter Rossouw en Louis Koen) stuur hulle seuns weer Gim toe.

    Hugenote se bokke (Japie Mulder en Chris Rossouw) stuur hulle kinders Helpmekaar toe

    Monnas se Bokke (Brendan Venter) se seun was in Paul Roos.

    Bakkies Botha (HTS Vereniging) gaan defnitief nie sy kids in n skool in Vereniging sit nie.

    Daarom dink ek het Garsfontein en Menlo so opgetel die laaste 10 jaar want die omgewing in Pretoria brei uit en doen goed. Ongelukkig sit Monnas in die ander bootjie en 100 jaar se geskiedenis was vir hulle goed en hulle het puik presteer, maar ek sien nie dat hulle dit vir veel langer kan uithou in daardie omgewing nie, n oud Monumentaar kan nog net so lank sy kind daar laat skoolgaan voor dit nie meer veilig is nie en dan sal hulle seker ook Gim toe skuif, dieselfde vir Helpmekaar, hulle 100 jaar was goed maar in die hartjie van JHB met al die stakings wat daar aangaan en 90% van hulle leerlinge wat per bus aangery word skool toe weet ek nie hoe lank dit kan aanhou nie, ek sal wragtig nie my dogter 6 uur die oggend op n bus in JHB middestad instuur nie.

    In die verlede (kom ons se 20 of 30 jaar gelede) het ouers van reg oor die land hulle kinders na die Kaapse skole se koshuise gestuur en selfs na Grey ook. Niks het verander nie. Dit is nogsteeds so.
    Ouers in die stad het hulle kinders na plaas skole gestuur na koshuis vir verskeie redes (Pietersburg, Tom Naude, HTs Middelburg, ens) selfs die boere op die plase se kids was in die koshuis want dit het hulle dissipline en spanwerk en en en geleer. Vandag is dit anders, ouers in Pretoria stuur nie sy kind Pietersburg toe nie want dis te blerrie gevaarlik, selfs boere in Limpopo huur n huis in die dorp en boer net op sy plaas deur die dag, en stuur sy kind Pretoria toe vir skool.

    Op die stadium lyk dit my met die covid jaar kon die Noorde nie lekker recruit nie en hulle sukkel. Op die stadium is die Suide besig om amok te maak en Vrydag en Saterdag sien ek nog groter tellings teen die Noorde.

    @boerboel ek wil met jou saamstem, Gim, Oakdale en Grey baie goed, ek ken nie Booishaai so goed nie maar as hulle nog sterker moet word kry ek die ander spanne jammer. Gim het mos reeds 2 naweke terug vir Oakdale op die plaas gewen in n “oefening” so Oakdale kan slegs speel vir n 2de plek op ranglys vanjaar. Dan is dit nog net HJS wat vir Gim kan wen.

    STEEDS se die manne van Helpmekaar, Monnas en Noordheuwel vir my dat die Kaap skole nie so goed is nie net akkuraat en @strepie dit is die rede dat die Suide die Noorde verwoes want die Noorde lewe in n droomwereld, afrigters is arrogant en daar is altyd n verskoning vir die verloor of dit met 1 punt is of 70

    Ons hou jul met groot afwagting dop verder die jaar, baie sterkte vir julle.

    En ook aan al die ander Suid spanne, Gim, Stellies, Boishaai en Outeniqua.
    Ek het die opmerkings nou gelees van die anner bloggers en ja ons Noorde is ver agter.
    Dinsdag gedurende die vroee wedstryde het ons almal opgemerk die dringendheid, korrektheid en samespel van die suid spanne wat myle voor ons noord spanne was.
    Ek gaan glad nie hier iemand kritiseer nie want om na ongeveer 400 dae weer kontak sport te begin speel gaan iemand vinniger uit die blokke wees as sy opponent.
    Duidelik opmerklik dat ons innie Noorde wel diegene is wat stadig uit die blokke was en wat die spesifieke redes hiervoor mag wees kan legio dalk wees.

    As dit nie in 21 reggestel gaan word nie gaan dit wel gebeur dan in 2022 sal ek so glo dan.
    Skole / kinders / afrigting is nie een dieselfde nie en reageer almal verskillend.
    En Grey gaan n faktor wees ook weer die jaar, moet hul nie afskryf nie!!

    Ek sien verder baie uit na wedstryde later vanjaar wanner Gim, PRG, Boishaai, Oakdale, Grey & Outeniqua gaan swaarde kruis. Gaan baie interessant wees.

  124. Overall HTS Rooibulle did well to contain Stellenberg. HTS has a hard season ahead and hopefully the players gain some encouragement from their gutsy display. After two thrilling performances which led to wins against Helpmekaar and Monument, it was perhaps asking a bit much for the overachievers to put in another praise-worthy performance. Grinding out a win when not playing well also says a lot about a team. Final score Stellies 19 – 10 HTSM. Lightning stopped the game for a while.

    ReplyReply
  125. @Gatskop: Yes agreed. Under trying circumstances hats off to Garsies and Oakdale for making a good entertainment package out of it. Nice to see how the players did their best to adapt to the adverse pitch conditions. A few Garsies players got to show their worth which is encouraging and I’m sure that once the VB gets into full swing, a few of the boys will be delivering big performances. The Garsies 9 is under 17. Looks like a player worth keeping an eye over the next two seasons. His opponent tonight is off the charts good – he’s double ticking all the boxes. The Bulls have got themselves another good signing there. In the end my favourite player in the game was the Oakdale TH prop and I think it’s what paved the way for the Riversdal Bulle to win this match 41-12: their key players coming to the party. I enjoyed the little space seeking passes by the Oakdale players, especially when the forwards were involved. They are not just a team of physicality, they have skills as well.

  127. @beet agree fully very nice game to watch, that number 9 is so special, I think the last 9 playing that good (passing, kicking, decision making) was maybe Fourie du Preez for Affies back in 2000.

    The Oakdale 8 is a little monster, and he does not just steam roll he links up and tackles and pass just as well as running over people.

    But a player I would like to mention in that Oakdale team that has impressed me in both games is the 15. This boy should not be overlooked and teams playing against him should think twice before just kicking the ball down his neck.

    # I wonder how he played against a good kicking 10 like the one from Gim in their warm up match 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ok ok training match🤣🤣 ok sorry trials☺☺ I mean in the practice session weekend that Gim took in Riversdal 🤔😉

    Tongue in cheek guys I dont know what happened and I dont care because Gim and Oakdale will still have played this good even with a week less rugby as everyone is saying these two groups habe been special since grade 8.

  134. Durbanville were slow to adjust to the difficult field conditions early on. It took them a while to get into their stride. Once the opposition got a little tired, the game opened up a bit more for Durbies. The introduction of the at times Beaudon Barret like Herschelle Goodman added impetus to the attacking game. He really stood out during the time he was on. In the end a convincing 36-5 win for the South team. The game will possibly be best remembered for Durbies dropping the ball over the line twice in the act of scoring, the first resulting from a player being Robbie Flecked from behind.
    Like in their previous match Paarl Gim were initially subjected to resistance by the opposition in the form of Helpmekaar from Braamfontein this time. It was probably the Helpies best match of the season to date, as one started to see better team work, more structure, fewer errors and probably most importantly less focus distracting frustration being shown by their players. Gim are the top rated school in South Africa at present and it showed. They don’t necessarily play the fastest game of the SBR teams on display at this festival but they are the most composed, the best balanced and physically the strongest team. The responsibilities get shared around and many players make noteworthy contributions. That said their hooker Luca Bakkes and flank Joe du Toit where inspirational as carriers in the thick of things. Final score Gim 52-5 Helpies.
    The HJS Paarl vs Monument game is always a high profile match on the calendar. The last couple of meetings have been very exciting close matches. This match had the ingredients to be the same as it produced one of the better contests at NS 2021. It just looked like when it mattered Boishaai had the extra gears to create and finish while Monnas do not yet have that diversity to their game with ball in hand. So Boishaai always looked in control of their destiny and the match was theirs to lose if anything, because they could cope with most of what Monnas threw at them. The Boishaai pack is solid. Left wing Isaacs danced his way into the limelight and flyhalf von Ludwig has the creative play to make things happen. Towards the end they created a bit of selection headache for themselves ahead of the big Grey game with the intro of flyhalf Louw who did his bit to help the score advance to HJS 34-18 Witbulle. Monnas fought to the bitter end so there is nothing wrong with the character of the team. It’s down to coming up with a more lethal finishing package now as the Boishaai defence proved to be the high standard that could not be unlocked most of the time.
    Fortunately the beaten up Affies main field is drying out and allowing for underfoot conditions = better ball in hand play.

EG came at Grey with everything they had and one has to say that of all the top Noord schools at NS, they were the most impressive. They have numerous go to players who have proven and will continue to prove that they are game changers. Grey continue to improve and can be clinical even when they just have the smallest sniff of an opportunity to turnover/counter-attack/finish. It sounds like repetition but Grey’s pace cannot be praised enough. Along with their conditioning which comes to the fore in 2nd halves, its been the key to unlocking just about every defence in the country over the years. Flyhalf Jean Smith showed his potential today. He looked a bit hesitant to take on the defence in the last match but this time around when he saw the chances he quickly exploited the gaps.

  137. @Smallies: They have two heavyweights at EG. Regharht Botha and Rudi Dames. Rudi served under Sean Erasmus, then replaced him as Glenwood head coach, he joined and helped Pretoria BH point their rugby in the right direction again. Along the way he was on the Bulls most wanted list to head up their prestigious heavy investment junior rugby program, a role now occupied by the former Grey Bloem successful coach Wessel Dup. Currently Rudi also has a Varsity Cup coaching role. I think he is one of a handful of IRB level 3 coaches as well.

  139. A nice close match to end NS 2021. Welkom Gim finally got to show a bit of what they are capable of and never gave up on chasing down the Affies lead. In 2019 I thought Calla Pienaar was destined for good things based on his form then so happy to see a more of the same now and hopefully he can up his game a few more notches. Testimony Dodo showed his versatility and then some. He had done a pretty decent job as a 12 but to step into a specialist role like hooker and still look convincing was great. For Affies, I know there die-hard support base wished is last week or so had gone better. Affies is one of the Big 5. Expectations are high. They have some useful players, so now the emphasis should be on consolidating and producing the same winning result in the matches coming up everyone expects Affies to win. No.8 Smith is an impressive unit who would add value to any SBR 1st XV team in SA this year. Scrummy Horn backed up his form from the Oakdale game with another good performance and must be in race for CW honours. 31-26 to Affies in the end.

  140. All-in-all the best NS production ever. Good advertising for the title sponsor Menlyn Toyota as well. The Affies lights made the night matches work out well. Just a pity about the cricket pitch but mother nature cannot be controlled. But I do think the NS festival, which for a few years now has been vying for no.1 spot overall against the often assumed no.1 Wildeklawer, hit a speed wobble in 2021 and may be better remembered for a few big victories rather that the quality of the teams on display.

  141. Brilliant,exciting and hard game between EG Jansen and Grey College today. As Beet say the score is not a true reflection of what happened on the day. A little bit of ill discipline like late tackles which was turned into penalties which lead to 2 tries for Grey indirectly. Also one or two handling errors while on the attack very close to the tryline by EGJansen could have made a big difference with a few extra tries. Just some final touches breaking here and there but overall a very good performance.If they can sort these small errors out and keep up this performance, they will have a very good season ahead in 2021. This team is well coached.

  142. Very good rugby from school boys. So glad that they could get on to the field again. Some big wins and some huge losses but in every game in every team there was at least one good player that played his heart out and made his family watching proud. Imagine if you can pick a team from just this tournament and take them to the 2027 RWC in Russia. Most of them will be about 24 years old (most Gim players will be 23 and most EG players will be 25 😉). Then South Africa will win another RWC.

    Some great players. My team of the tournament
