The St John’s College Easter Rugby Festival fixtures, notorious for producing numerous one-sided mismatches, are still a work-in-progress. The list of 14 teams to participate in the event on the aesthetically perfect setting of Burger Field have been confirmed.
The big hitters being Affies, Boishaai and Paul Roos that frequented the festival in the past, are once again noted for their absence.
Nevertheless its still a great lineup. Schools like Boland Landbou, Kingswood College and Noordheuwel are enjoying a fruitful period and this run of form is expected to reflect in the 2024 win% stats. Hilton has just come off a major purple patch over the past few years and will be keen to get back there with a team that may fly under the radar. Graeme has been punching above their weight for a while now. There is no detention in rugby for bullying up front, so Maritzburg College might be guilty of this more than once or twice in 2024. SACS may have a few X-factors in their midst to keep the scoreboard ticking. All credit to Bethlehem Vories, who are making a big effort to up their profile. The Nellies Rhinos are a nice well recognised team who have worked hard to get back into the limelight but are still looking for an explosive statement run of form to go with the name. The hosts had a torrid time in 2023 and improvement may not be guaranteed but would be most welcomed.
