    Jy moet die karp and brulpadda markte in Asië, veral China, aanskou om dit te glo. Meestal massief. Bitter wreed ook, karp word aan die lewe gehou in straatmarkies in bakke met water wat hulle net net dek. Hulle word nie eers doodgemaak voor hulle gesny word nie. Die handelaars is heeltemal gevoelloos. Baie gewilde stapel.

    Great literature both.
    I saw the movie, A River Runs Through It…Visually stunning and a truly beautiful part of the world that, exceptional scenery and the wildness of those river spots. The pure joy of wading into those waters and fishing…then there’s the epic catch and chase in Old Man and the Sea… the yearning, the quest, the chase, the catch, the brutally disappointing end is unforgetable.
    Yet, what elevates both of those fishing experiences is the literature describing them. Not so? Equally, your descriptions of your fishing are of your best posts.

    Reason why PBHS is R69k a year is due to all the tutors employed to learn the Afrikaans Boys English…alps Reason why Affies is R50k per year, they offer English Home Language and advise parents to buy English Literature if they desire their kids to be affluent in English.

    Fishermen’s yarns are far better than Non-fishermen’s yawns.

    Better to view life like Norman Maclean in A river runs through it or Hemmingway. There is no life without hope, a thing fishermen understand far better than you guys. And truly, rivers say more than books.

    – Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.
    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.

    “Many of us would probably be better fishermen if we did not spend so much time watching and waiting for the world to become perfect”
    ― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

    “At the time I did not know that stories of life are often more like rivers than books.” rivers are not yarns.
    ― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
    “It’s silly not to hope. It’s a sin he thought.”

    ― Ernest Hemingway, quote from The Old Man and the Sea

    Ek het darem al ‘n karp gevang. In Seekoeivlei, 70’s. Babatjie, seker so 3kg. hier naby my, Noord-Oos, is ‘n klein dorpie Stanford. die Kleinrivier loop daar deur en mond in Hermanus uit in die see. Meestal ‘n klein , klein riviertjie, begin bo in die berg bo Grotto strand en maak ‘n perfekte perdehoef, begin en eindig baie naby aan dieselfde plek. Maar vanaf Stanford is dit ‘n groot rivier. Ewe skielik is daar nou moerse karpe aan die bokant, by Stanford, of redelik groot, so 10kg. Ek het hulle al met die kunsvlieg probeer vang, soos my een kennis regkry, maar no-go. Ek kry net vleikurpers op die lyn, moerse grotes. In die somer gaan daardie vleikurpers af tot voor die see en swem saam met die leries en elf in my gooinet in.

    Hulle moet seker maar die karp los sodat julle klomp papgooiers iets het om te doen daar aan die verkeerde kant van die Hexrivier. Wat maak julle klomp gwarre in die winters as die karp nie byt nie? Trek skoene aan en speel rugby?

    Lyk my daar gebeur nie baie op die SBR front tans nie? Ek is nie baie goed daarmee nie, maar vlieghengel is naby my hart. Dis die enigste stokhengel waarby ek ooit nog betrokke raak. Andersins nou en dan handlyn vir snoek of so, dis onbeskryfbare genot as die snoek loop. Ek duik maar vir vis, ek is baie beter daarmee, of was. Ons plaaslike vlieghengel klub stock 4 damme met reënboog-en bruinforel. Ek het al in die Oos-Kaap en Natal ens gehengel met vlieg, wil nog Lesotho toe gaan. Ek het in 1992 ‘n 3,05 kg forel in die Eersterivier onder die Kleinplaasdam in Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, waar die eerste forelle in 1890 geteel is. As kind het die Eersterivier rooivlerkie nog in die Eersterivier voorgekom, dit was die eerste vis wat ek met ‘n duikbril gesien het. Nou is hulle uitgewis. Maar wat ek wel meer onlangs gedoen het is vlieghengel vir seevis, soos leervis. Dit is moer lekker. As laaitie het ek baie karp, geelvis , baber, moddervis ens in die Vaalrivier gevang, soms in die Hartsrivier. Ons was mal genoeg om dit te eet. My Duitse ouma het my betaal om forelle te vang vir haar, en wilde sampioene (steinpilz/Boletus) te pluk in die dennebosse vir om te eet soos in haar grootword dae. Ek wens forel en karp het nooit na SA gekom nie, maar dis te laat, veral wat karp betref. Hulle wemel selfs in die Kasteel in Kaapstad se gragte. Ek wens die skerptand babers en Thilapia wil uit die Wes Kaap verdwyn, en die Bergrivier witvis ens wil terugkeer. Dan as mens die bass uit die Olifants en Doringriviersisteme in Clanwilliam kan haal, sal dit ‘n bonus wees sodat die onderbek/sandvis/ Clanwilliam geelvis ens kan oorleef. Dit het my 13 jaar se besoeke aan die Cederberg geneem om al meer as tien van laasgenoemde stelsels se hoogs bedreigde spesies onderwater te sien. Nogal weird om berg te klim na Tweerivier met jou duiksak en weightbelt in 45 grade C.

    :lol: I did find pounds, shillings and crowns buried in a cloth on the bank of the Eersterivier while fly fishing as a scholar, right in front of the PRG main gate, by the old wooden pedestrian bridge though. Nowadays your chances are better finding more pounds and shillings in that river than trout, let alone large browns like back in the 70’s.

    Maybe, BUT Grey College fees are obviously subsidised somehow. Glenwood’s grade 9-12 day scholar fees (R64,590) are about the same as Westville (R65,500), Northwood (R64,450), DHS (R59,500), Maritzburg College (R61,400). The privates like Kearsney (R240,900) & Clifton College (R200k) are 3 times that for day scholars. Hilton and Michaelhouse are 5x that but only boarders. Arguably because Glenwood is in a poorer area that should charge more to cover those that don’t pay. Grey College at R43,660 is very low….

    Well, Trevor Kershaw stole quite a bit a while ago. Not really, Glenwood is a middle income family type kid, just paying fees, maybe quite a few not at all. Old Boys are not that engaged as most have left for overseas. Sponsorships are probably where it comes from mostly. We don’t have ultra-rich dollar billionaire OBs topping up the purse. I do think more can be done to engage with OBs overseas. Many are successful and would help if engaged with. I have noticed an effort on Linkedin etc to improve this…

    Spot on, Glenwood as an example use to get great talent organically from the rougher parts of Durban, the Bluff, Queensburgh, Toti and further afield in the BE. Boys from these areas were naturally harder because they came from middle class families. We would have the occasional great year and no real scholarships or bursaries were needed, maybe 5 a year for academics or allrounders. Now that talent is being hoovered up from other schools so its become a bidding game. Glenwood also has a very large Indian feeder region in Chatsworth, so more non rugby playing. The challenges are large for rugby. Our BE is where the talent sat, and still does. In the past it was fed by primary schools in Pretoria and further afield, that no longer happens. Rugby isn’t a huge sport in KZN. So I think going forward the strategy will be to retain the best from our feeder schools who play rugby, Penzance, Glenwood Prep etc and then search KZN for boarders. That will make us competitive in KZN and probably around 30th in the country. I would be happy with that and getting a 50%-60% win ratio. Set realistic goals…

    I think you have hit the nail on the head. I think many schools are going to take a more pragmatic approach to rugby programs. Set clear boundaries and expectations. Insure parents, old boys, staff and boys are all bought into the vision. Losing games to the perenial top 10 candidates is not a disaster.

    Dont think Glenwood is the only school that will face/have faced this challenge with their rugby program, I think there are many other schools in the same boat, but under the radar. It is very, very difficult for a top 50/100 school to successfully and sustainably challenge the top 20 traditional rugby schools you mention. You can throw the kitchen sink and everything else you have at them for a couple of years, but the funds you need do match them are extreme and most of these schools will need to sacrifice non-rugby needs in their budgets. Yes, there are crazy talent available, but if a significant portion of a grade group’s rugby playing boys (and their coaches) need to be budgeted for by a school, the long-term sustainability of a program could be in jeopardy. People in charge of both the purse as well as the strategic direction of school come and go, we have seen the movie many times..

    The quicker schools identify what they want to be for all stakeholders involved, the sooner they can create a realistic expectation in terms of their rugby program and achievements for current and future boys and parents. Whether it is top 30 or top 100, playing in a certain NV-league, winning the annual derby or whatever, then so be it. Go out, enjoy it and stop chasing ghosts.

    Yeah, the 2018 team was arguably our best ever, maybe of the past 40 years for sure. Yes, hands up we bought success, had great coaches in Sean Erasmus and Rudi Dames, we had age issues not entirely our fault eg Oom Tom and maybe some other issues, but I give the school credit for pushing the boundaries. Glenwood were one of the first to have sports academies, custom schedules for sportsman and a very professional approach. I do think it went too far to maintain a ranking. So I think now is a reset, we will come back with a balanced approach, which will make us Top 30 again, where we belong based on over 114 years of rugby. Yes, we are no Affies, Grey Bloem, Paul Roos, Paarl Gim, Boishaai, Monnas etc but who is, most schools in the world would lose to them. We will be happy with pushing these top teams occasionally and be Top 4 in KZN. Viva Cornwall High!!

    Humans are hypocrites. I am guilty of that too. Back in the day I was very outspoken against it, and I was almost entirely wrong. Good luck to Glenwood. Simply does not feel right for KZN’s once finest to struggle staying in the Top 50. FFS they had brilliant teams.

    Yep, Glenwood’s poor season doesn’t help KZN rugby. BUT there is light at the end of the tunnel with decent age groups coming through. We can’t compete against the DHS purse but will do our best. Seems bought success is OK now, it wasn’t when Glenwood was doing well. Funny that, it suits those who are doing well…

    :lol: Sounds great, enjoy. As often, during winter, we are experiencing “UK weather” today in the Western Cape, and I do not mean those great summer days in the UK summer. Geoff Boycott once said there is no day as beautiful as a summer day in Yorkshire. Glenwood rugby’s current state is a huge loss to SBR. Sure hope you guys can turn it around.

    To be completely fair – there is not much competition in the rest of the Free State. If PRG played in Boland with the Boland schools, they would also have similar representation. As an example, PRG’s 5th team beat HS Stellenbosch’s first team by 30-odd. The same HS Stellenbosch team pushed unbeaten Charlie Hofmeyr all the way, losing 12-6…

    Rouxville is waar die een kant van my familie kom. My pa van Kroonstad. Potch Volkkskool toe later. My een oupa se graf en sy broer s’n is op ‘n koppie in die Noord-Kaap wat uitkyk oor die Vrystaat grens. Langs die hoofpad, oorkant die plaas waar ek van my eerste jare gewoon het. Hy het altyd daar gesit en staar. Ek gaan sit soms daar onder die kameeldorings en versamelvoël neste en staar ook maar en dink diep. Dis eintlik nie meer Karoo nie maar Rand Kalahari.

    Het jy al gelees oor die 1967 wedstryd tussen Grey en PRG? Ek hoop nou nie ek klink soos die Glenwood argivis nie : “the referee – Oom Johnnie Meiring from the Matie Club! One of Grey’s centers went through a gap and with only the Paul Roos fullback in front of him he passed inside. The man on his inside was Oom Johnnie who caught the ball and then raced towards the tryline to score right under the posts! Only to blow his whistle and to call back play for a scrum where he caught the ball. This was exemplary of the spirit in which this game was played.” Dit was PRG se enigste drie.

    Well said. We did not complain when we had to go to Durban to compete at SA Universities Spearfishing by train from Stellenbosch while the rugby team went by airplane. That train trip was unforgettable. I hitchhiked back and stopped over for a month in Coffee Bay in the old Transkei, to again work for old Springbok rugby player Polla Fourie and his dad, Oom Billy. Spent great times with a University California LA team of marine biologists studying sea sponges, mended my kalwerliefde broken heart with a new UCLA girlfriend. Made enough money for my studies by among other things selling speared Scotsmen fish etc. to the late Chief Kaiser Mathanzima. Would have missed that all if we too were allocated the funds rugby players were.

    Jokes aside, the rugby programmes often get so much opposition from detractors ( and haters) inside the school itself who will go on and on how rugby players get preferential treatment at school, how it’s not fair that drama, choir, extra additional maths further studies etc. etc. can’t get the same treatment. This can actually ruin a programme totally when the principal bends over backwards to prove he is fair. There is the anti-competitive sport crowd, who resent sport at schools, despite the overwhelming majority of kids enjoying some sports activity or the other, and they particularly try bring rugby down. This explains how quite a number of the schools rugby programmes have been emasculated (they cut off the balls, pardon the pun).
    We are grateful for all round schools…and not a single ‘rugby school’ is one dimensional…every one of them is also a strong academic institution with decent cultural offerings, not to mention competitive other sports from hockey to athletics, cricket, swimming etc.

    Jis Rainier. Het jy gehoor, Smallies, Kaya 85 en Geroeste Yster versoek dat Affies hulle games teen Grey voortaan stagger in die oop spanne omdat jou Alma Mater nie genoeg diepte het om die mas op te kom teen genuine rugbyskole nie en slegs 7 uit 31 games kon wen teen Affies in 2024. Maw Grey se onder 14 C speel teen Affies se onder 14D ens. Djou en Grizzly meen omdat Garsies ook nie diepte het nie kan hulle onder 14B invul en byvoorbeeld teen Affies se onder 14C speel op daardie dag. Dan kan Garsies en Grey saamstaan om vir Affies ook ‘n bietjie van ‘n challenge te bied op julle interskole. Dit het vir my maar eers soos ‘n vreemde versoek geklink maar hoe meer ek daaraan dink hoe meer sin maak dit. Ek het sulke erkentlikheid egter nooit uit Smallies se mond verwag nie.

    Lappies Labuschagne was GCB se coach vir baie jare en was in beheer vir die 90 onoorwonne wedstryde. Dries het saam met hom afgerig.

    Lekker. Yes, Skonk is probably the most successful schoolboy coach, 14 unbeaten seasons in 35 years. Toppy was of the next generation after Skonk.

    Anthony ‘Toppy’ Hortop, Glenwood 1st team rugby coach from 1970 to 1991 and then 1996 to 2007, 30 years in charge. I think he’s around 84 now and still helps our coaching when he gets a chance. Maybe his record wasn’t as good as College and Bishops, but his impact on boys in academics and sports was huge. He didn’t have the same great player pools other schools had.

    Congrats to School on their victory against house on their old boys day. Great to see the schools band rev up the boys before kick off. Very festive with a packed crowd. The band should consider starting at the war memorials as homage to the fallen . Next up Kearsney on their old boys day,2024 must be a record year of games played on opponents’ old boys day: Hilton, MBC, DHS

    Perspective, Glenwood have played St Charles since 1934.

    1930’s – played 12, won 3 and lost 9.
    1940’s – played 18, won 5, lost 12, drew 1
    1950’s – played 10, won 3, lost 5, drew 2
    1960’s – played 9, won 9 – biggest score in 1965 winning 46-0
    1970’s – played 8, won 6, drew 2
    80’s, 90’s, 2000’s – no matches
    Since 2010 – played 3, won 3.

    Overall:
    Played: 60
    Won: 29
    Lost 26
    Drawn: 5

    So yesterday was a milestone, last time St Charles beat Glenwood was in 1959 (10-8). Well done to St Charles, back to the 1930’s it seems…

    Not really, just disappointed. The the team is young with good talent in it. St Charles have a good team that has been competitive with most. It would be good if St Charles played Kearsney. A very bad year 1st team results-wise but there are green shoots in the 1st team, U16A, U15A and U14s across the board. In the end it’s just kids and not life and death. Go Green! OBs will be angry but need to be patient..

    What a game between EGJansen and Klofies. A draw, but could have been a win for EGJansen if their kicker had a better day and did not miss conversions. Also EGJansen’s forward pack was disrupted and realy missed their Nr1 prop who is out due to serious injury. I do not know if he will play this year again.

    Not true. Ruben was U16 in 1986 & although brilliant, he didn’t make it in 86. He made it 87 & 8&. Andre Venter did it & Danie Gerber also made it 3 years in a row 75/6/7.

    Not really. They lost 14-12 to EP at Craven Week. Natal lost to E.Tvl. But guess what – Tvl played Natal in the final because “they play attractive rugby”. The fact that F. Jordaan’s father was head of Topsport that did the broadcasting of the final only may have had something to do with it!

    Thanks Kaya – that was a pretty handy KES team – also interesting that there were only three grade 11’s in that team – Lawless, McCarthy and Reid (although Norris repeated in ’87). Norris is now Director of Sports at St Johns. Still can’t believe Small didn’t play Craven Week in ’86!

    Yes, he played 1st team in st9 in ‘85. We had a poor team that year and James played center, which did not suit him as he had less space to run and, ironically, he wasn’t a good tackler in those days. Re ‘86: as I say, I’m not exactly sure of the timeline, but it appears that Mr Visser convinced him to return to Greenside during ‘86, rather than at the end of ‘86.
    .
    I seem to remember him being in the Tvl D team in the ‘85 trials, but I stand corrected.

    Was James at GREENSIDE in 85? Surely he would have played 1st xv if he was. I’m not doubting your story & it adds to the James Small legacy……but James was at GREENSIDE in 86. He went to Tvl trials & was in the D team at the final trial. As I said, you have encyclopaedic knowledge of schoolboy rugby & I don’t want to discredit your story but I also seem to remember James playing against KES at Ellis Park in that curtain riaiser…..

    I saw that game too…remember Greg Miller trying 2 or 3 drop goals, then slotting one to win the game I think…
    and then a few weeks later when KES played at St Stithians, I still have a clear memory of the schoolboy photographer from Saints who in trying to compose a good shot had walked a few metres on to the field, near the corner, when suddenly the backline move went fast to the right, down the line to the wing on the overlap – the try scorer at top speed almost collided with the camera guy who just looked up nonchalantly but frozen to the spot.

    I left Greenside at the end of ’85, so I’m not 100% clear on James Small’s path thereafter. That said, if memory serves, he followed his girlfriend (the reigning Miss Greenside) to Eden College in ’86. At Eden College, there was no school uniform, no rugby, one could grow one’s hair long, etc, etc…so I don’t think that he played rugby in ’86 at all, or perhaps a very limited amount. His girlfriend dumped him, so he plugged matric, which is the only year that he failed during his school career. Incidentally, she left him for my soccer teammate at the time, who was one of the founders of a large, national fruit and veg wholesaler. I believe that they are still married.
    .
    Mr Visser, the Greenside 1st team coach and deputy head of school, invited James to his office to convince him to return to Greenside to complete his matric in ’87. James was unconvinced, as Greenside was very strict and James had just spent a year at Eden. However, Mr Visser (who was a heavy smoker), closed the door of his office and offered James a smoke. It was at that point that James realised that he’d be treated differently and he agreed to return to Greenside, where he made the SA Schools team and the rest is history.

    True story. KES were on attack & 10 chipped ahead. James caught ball in his own 22 & ran straight across the field to the touch line then turned & put on the burners to outstrip all the cover defence. Great try by James in 87. How can we still remember these things so clearly 40 years later!!??
    The modern generation can’t believe it but those co-Ed English schools could play! Sandringham in the 70s/80s had favourable records vs Jeppe, Parktown, Dale, SACS, St John’s & St Stithians! That’s not guessing- it’s records from their rugby program booklet in 1988!

    The KES vs GREENSIDE curtain raiser at Ellis Park was in 1986 & one of the curtain raisers for the final Boks vs Cavaliers Test match. Interestingly, James Small wasn’t a legend in 86 despite it being the year he should have matriculated. I don’t recall him making a huge impression in 86 & he didn’t make either of the Tvl Craven Week teams. But my goodness was he good in 87! His pace was astounding & his willingness to run from anywhere made him a huge name & fully deserved his SA Schools cap.

    @Roger (Comment #218)Besides Pretoria Boys High, my universe of English schools were limited to Rietondale Primary and Clapham High. I only attended a Saints and KES rugby festival (as a spectator) for the 1st time in the early 90’s and I was astounded to see how good the English schools were. I took a particular fancy in Grey High back then (must have been the colour of their jerseys). Grey High had a strong team in 91/92…think Greg Miller was the flyhalf. Greg really impressed me in the main game at the KES festival on the Saturday. If memory serves Greg later in that year teamed up with Chad Alcock to play CW for EP.

    in good old JHB back then, English speaking primary schools didn’t play rugby – only soccer, and we were far more interested in Manchester United, Liverpool, Spurs etc than watching the Currie Cup. The Springboks hardly played back then – although I do remember the NZ Cavaliers Tour in ’86 being huge! It was only once we got to High school that rugby became the number one Winter code!

    My first rugby game, under 9, was against SACS Primary, second one against Fishhoek, third one against Boston Primary. So, all English. Most of our team were Afrikaans but Henry, our captain, was English speaking. Nowadays all primary schools play barefoot I think, but back in the 70’s we were in the league wearing togs, while Stellenbosch Primary and AF Louw Primary played in the barefoot league.

    Ferdi Venter was die slot en hy het inderdaad later so paar wedstryde vir die Bulle gespeel. Wat sy storie merkwaardig maak is dat hy eers in Gr.11 begin rugby speel het nadat die afrigters hom na ‘n lang gesukkel oorreed het. Hy was net te groot en te lank om nie rugby te speel nie. Bennie Botes was die losskakel. Hy was toe maar nog in Gr.10 gewees. Sou nie sê hy was agressief nie. Bennie het ‘n rugbybrein en goeie hande en voete gehad (soos sy pa Louwtjie wat in die 70’s so paar Currie cup wedstryde vir Vrystaat gespeel het). Soos van tevore al op blog gesê is…Bennie is in sy Gr.11 jaar Affies toe en het in sy post-matriek jaar een van Affies se heel 1ste SA skole spelers geword (hy het senter gespeel vir die Skole span).

    Only a little surprised to hear this Vleisie…probably had James Small in that team. I heard how he launched a counter attack from behind his own tryline in their game vs KES that year to run the full length of the field and score. Maybe someone can confirm this?
    Greenside, Bryanston, Northcliff were all pretty good hey…also Sandringham. And as mentioned, Capricorn up in far northern Tvl too.

    As ek reg onthou het julle ‘n baie groot slot gehad, wat na skool ook bietjie verder gegaan het en ‘n baie aggresiewe nr 10. Die skool het ook in 90 en 91 met 1 punt verloor teen FH in die bloubulle kwart of semi as ek reg onthou. Daai jare was die Moot skole nog baie sterk in rugby.

    Korrek. Het in die laerskool en hoërskool teen hom gespeel. In laerskool was dit soms ‘n hele paar wedstryde per jaar. In ‘88 het ons naelskraap teen hulle verloor op hulle tuisveld. Ons forwards was te sterk vir hulle maar Kobus Vlok was daardie aand op sy aller beste en het die game vir FH gewen.

    I see that Affies lost to Rondebosch in ’87. In that same year, Greenside played Wynberg and SACS away from home and were unbeaten in those two games. I presume that Wynberg and/or SACS were at a similar level to Rondebosch, which means that Greenside was at a similar level to, or better than, Affies in ’87…in theory anyway! :lol:

    What a lekker game to watch…thanks for that link. Good tough old-fashioned north of Vaal rugby…fly halves and fullback taking drop kick pot shots from anywhere…a 45m drop kick or 2 going over. Also notice the kicking and positional type of play…and the ‘finals rugby’ approach…in ’99 when Jannie de Beer sank England with 5 drop goals the northern hemisphere press went ga-ga…well back in ’87 as u see, any decent school flyhalf was already aspiring to that…the age of Naas. Also notice how we used to play upright mauling game on the hard fields of the highveld…basically zero rucks as they are defined and played these days. As soon as a loose scrum collapsed ref would blow the whistle. And after a wheeled scrum, the other team would get the throw in. Of course, no lifting in the lineouts either. Enjoyed watching that. The other day my brother-in-law also sent me a YouTube link of an old 80’s VHS recording of a Capricorn High School game…they were very good, similar style of rugby, and well supported judging by that video too.

    Vra hom asb wie het in 1988 heelagter gespeel. Cobus Vlok was losskakel, senters was Riaan Botha (later ‘n Springbok paalspringer saam met Ockert Brits) en Johannes vd Westhuizen (Joost se neef as ek reg onthou), Lardus Engelbrecht en Charl Timms was die vleuels. Ek kan vir die dood net nie onthou wie was fullback nie?

Het op universiteit nog so bietjie kontak gehad. Ek spot graag wanneer ek sê dis net Joost wat tussen my en ‘n loopbaan in rugby gestaan het :wink:

    Wow, dis nou ‘n blast van die past, baie dankie. Daai FH agterlyn was uiters talentvol (die losskakel en 2 senters was on par met Joost). Verder was die hele agterlyn, behalwe die een vleuel en die heelagter (as ek reg onthou), nog in Gr.11 in 1987. Dis hoekom hulle een van die groot gunstelinge in 1988 was…maar vir een of ander rede het die magic daardie jaar ontbreek.

    Menlo moes in die QF teen Joost-hulle verloor. FH en Langenhoven was die een SF terwyl Affies en Brits (wat daardie jaar 2de geeindig het in B-Afdeling) die ander SF was. Ek het op Affie website gaan lees Affies het finaal teen Langenhoven eers in doodsnikke gewen toe Christo Potgieter in die hoek gaan druk het. Joost en FH het die 0/15 Direkteurstrofee in 1986 gewen en was groot gunstelinge om dit as 1ste span weer in 1988 te doen…maar dit was nie vir hulle bestem nie.

    Vooruitgang is ‘n relatiewe term. Hulle sê Barrydale het baie vooruitgegaan, maar vir my het dit baie verander sedert die 80’s en in die verkeerde rigting. Oorgekommersialiseerd, daar vanaf ou oom en tannie Cook ( Susan se ma en pa) se huis af regdeur. Ek vermy Stellenbosch ook ten spyte van al die “vooruitgang”, en Barkly Wes/Dikgatlong en Hotazel soos die pes agv agteruitgang.

    Dink dit is ‘n moeilike een, Noordheuwel en Monnas, is in terme van hoeveelheid spanne en ligging, is die tweeling van Krugersdorp. En hoe kies mens tussen ‘n tweeling. Die waarheid is dit gaan nou baie interressant wees om te sien wie en waar Affies gaan nader om die bepaling vir 2025 te vul. Rustenburg, Nelspruit, Middelburg, Krugersdorp, Durban, PE of een van die vele spanne in die Republiek van Kaapland. My geld is op Nr 38 rooi

    Aangesien Grey amper 100 verby Monnas gesit het is ‘n fixture tussen Affies se 3e-span en ondertoe en B-spanne en ondertoe dalk ‘n plan teen Monnas in die plek van Menlo. Ek weet net nie teen wie Affies se 1e,2e en A-spanne daai dag gaan speel nie. Wit Bulle teen Wit Osse…!

    Nou kan almal (Menlo en Affies) op die eksamens konsentreer. Ek wonder watse derby kan hierdie een vervang. Ek sien daar was maar min mense by die Grey vs Monnas wedstryd verlede Saterdag. Affies vs Paul Roos of Paarl Bois sal darem ideal wees, maar die afstand bly ‘n ding. Miskien maar weg en tuis teen Grey speel. Beide skole sal daarby baat.

    Nee man. Haal diep en rustig asem en lees opmerking #72 en my reaksie weer so paar maal. Het ek ge-impliseer dis my opinie of het ek, soos my vriend Grizzly, gesê ek is reg tot jy my my verkeerd bewys? Moerse verskil. Het ek toe ook sommer stellings gemaak soos hy oor Gim vs byv Garsfontein wat betref spandering aan sport en akademie en dan genoem ek is korrek totdat ander my verkeerd bewys. Geensins oop vir oortuiging nie. Dis die punt. Indien ek my opinie moet substansieer : Is Gim verplig om spanne in Gauteng te koop soos Garsfontein dit doen in die Kaap en elders om net op eerstespan vlak soos iets te lyk? Nee, hulle het baie meer diepte en organiese aantrekkingskrag, soos Affies ook. Lees dan Snelvuur se plasing oor meisiesporte by Gim, asook ander sporte. So, ek SOU EERDER Sê dat as Gim dieselfde doen hulle nog verder voor sou wees,weereens, ” ek sou eerder sê”, my opinie, gebaseer op niks so bisar soos om te maak of ek binnekennis het van Gim se spandering, finansies en begroting nie. Kyk waar staan Gim met ranglyste en Springbokke, sê maar in vergelykbare periodes.

    Baie waar. Ding is, akademie is nie spansport nie, en my kinders sou nie beter op PRG en Bloemhof gedoen het as wat hulle hier gedoen het nie, en hulle het uiteindelik baie goed gedoen. My laaitie het baie middae met sy kayak tussen walvisse uitgeroei om te gaan visskiet, wondere aanskou, lifesaving en sea scouts gedoen, berg geklim. As hy nou in PRG op koshuis was het hy dit alles verloor. Hulle was in die beste skole VIR HULLE.

    Stem rakende hoe moeilik dit is om ‘n maatstaf vir akademie te kry. Dit sal baie meer genuanseerd moet wees as bloot slaagsyfer of selfs gemiddelde hoeveelheid A’s. Sekere skole se kinders doen baie beter op universiteit as ander s’n (selfs onder kinders wat dieselfde punte op skool gehad het). By Stellenbosch Universiteit, byvoorbeeld, doen oud-Bloemhoffers ongelooflik goed (soos in off the charts goed), terwyl oud-Paul Roosers die beste van die seunskole doen. Daar is natuurlik baie faktore wat bydra (sosioekonomiese posisie, ondersteuning uit die ouerhuis, ens, ens), maar ek dink dit is definitief ook ‘n geval van dat sekere skole leerders beter voorberei om universiteit toe te gaan. Mens kan natuurlik ook argumenteer dat akademiese prestasie slegs ‘n klein deeltjie van die totale skills is wat ‘n mens leer by ‘n skool. Kan ‘n mens kyk na die gemiddelde inkomste van ‘n skool se oud-leerders as ‘n proxy vir hul bydrae tot die gemeenskap na skool? Maar wat van die wat belangrike poste in NPO’s beklee? Dit is regtig moeilik om die skool se insette tot naskoolse sukses betroubaar te meet.

    Jou mening is fine, solank jy nie noem ek is verkeerd totdat ek jou verkeerd bewys nie. Ek kon myself net nog nooit indink dat mens so ver vanaf die see grootword nie. Ek woon vanjaar 30 jaar by die see en het groot geword naby die see. Hoe kinders oorleef sonder elke dag surf, bodyboard of duik of lifesaving doen vir sport is weer vir my onverstaanbaar, en hoogs subjektief maar ek sal nooit iemand vra om my verkeerd te bewys nie.

    Dit gaan alles afhang wat jy gaan gebruik as maatstaf, tussen Gim, kloof, garsfontein, en Menlo is almal top skole met fokus op akademie. Gim die sterkste met rugby, maar menlo weer sterkste met atletiek en so kan mens aangaan en aangaan. Oor akademie kan mens ook redeneer gaan dit oor meeste onderskeidings, of gemiddelde onderskeidings of gemiddelde persentasie van al die kinders. Dan kan mens weer redeneer is seunsskole beter ens, ens. Op die einde moet ons net dankbaar wees dat ons nog soveel goeie skole het. Sien daar is bv. n gesprek ip ‘n ander blog oor wie is die beste met skolerugby in totaal, grey of Affies of die wynland skole. Want as jy na 1ste spanne kyk skop Grey almal se gatte maar as jy na diepte kyk en al die spanne is Affies weer sterker. Persoonlik dink ek mens word gemeet op jou 1ste span maar dan moet mens seker dieselfde doen met al die ander sport en akademie. Dit hang alles af waar is jou kind gelukkig en waar pas hy aan.

    Rerig? Gim se rugby en hokkie (seuns en meisies) is, volgens die ranglyste, heelwat beter as al drie daardie skole s’n. Gim se krieket het egter wel redelik in die hek geduik onlangs, maar hulle netbal is steeds top 5 in die land (heelwat hoër as Garsies en Kloof, en min of meer gelyk met Menlo). Ek dink nie Gim is noodwendig die beste skool in die land nie (hoe sou mens in elk geval so iets bepaal?) en ek dink nie hulle het so gebalanseerde offering soos party ander skole nie, maar hulle is eintlik nogal goed in die sporte wat jy gelys het.

    Daar word verneem dat geen rugby die naweek gaan plaasvind tussen die buurskole nie. Een van die skole het die rugby bepaling gekansselleer.

    Nee, hy wat beweer moet bewys. Assertions without evidence can be dismissed without evidence . So niemand hoef jou verkeerd te bewys nie, jy moet jouself reg bewys, jy maak immers die stelling. Gim is julle almal ligjare voor en jou wilde heupskoot gaan niks verander nie. Ek sou eerder dink dat as Gim een fraksie uitgee op spanne uit Gim se hartland koop wat julle doen sou hulle nog beter presteer. Spekulasie gaan dit nie verander nie.

    Was dit nie die jaar wat Hugenote Spring die Admin gewen het nie ? In die finaal teen FH met Joost?
    3 spelers uit daardie 2 skole wat saam die eerste Wereldbeker vir SA gewen het.
    Joost
    Japie
    Chris

    Hier is n vraag vir die bloggers.
    NOORDVAAL/BEELD/ADMIN noem dit wat jy wil. Is daar al n enkele skool wat meer as Hugenote se 2 spelers in die selfde span n Wereldbeker gewen het ?

    @smallies ek praat nie van Grey wat in 2007 al 41 Bokke in die Wereldbeker verteenwoordig het nie 😉🤣. Slegs Noordvaal.

As ek reg onthou het Affies toe vir Menlo in die semi-finaal van die N-Tvl streek se uitspeel om die Direkteurstrofee geklop, waarna Affies toe vir Langenhoven in die finaal geklop het (Langenhoven het teen die verwagting in vir Joost en sy FH-span in die ander SF geklop)?

    Verder is daar nie een ander skool wat meer as 13 wenne teen AHS het nie, Affies het al teen 187 skole gespeel sedert 1920 en slegs 11 skole kon 10 of meer wedstryde teen Affies wen.

    Jy het seker ‘n punt beet, maar dan kan mens ook redeneer dat Affies jaarliks teen “ou” tradisionele vyande soos Oos Moot, FH Odendaal, Overkruin en dies meer moet speel. Die probleem is daardie skole is eenvoudig net nie meer in dieselfde liga as Affies nie en is Menlo nie op daardie selfde trajek nie??

    Lyk my vir Menlo is dit ‘n geval van “Damned if you do, damned if you dont”. Verlede jaar is hul behoorlik gekruising, op hierdie platform, toe hul kop uittrek. Hierdie jaar word hul aangemoedig?

    Moet PBH ook kanselleer omrede hul 10@1 gaan verloor? Die dag gaan oor baie meer as die uitslae, dit is bande tussen twee buurskole wat dekades teruggaan. Ja, Menlo gaan waarskynlik groot pakslae kry, maar as hulle eerlik met hulself is, asook hul ondersteuners, behoort dit nie saak te maak nie. Sien die groter prentjie.

    As hul werklik weer hul program wil opbou, is wegstap van hierdie fixture af die verkeerdste ding wat hul kan doen. Ek haal my hoed af vir Affies dat hul plek inruim vir Menlo. Vat hom op die ken, leer by een van die top rugbyskole in die land, bou die verhoudings met jou buurskool (skole het mekaar nodig), wees realisties oor wat jy uit die dag wil neem en sien dit alles in konteks.

    Dit is ons grootste interskole gelaai met groot geskiedenis. Speel al sedert 1923 en eers in die 1980″s het AHS die oorhand gekry.

    Joh! Wonder hoeveel skole daar is wat al meer as 116 keer teen mekaar gespeel het. Dalk die Paarl-skole? Maar hulle speel net een keer ‘n jaar, en sou seker iewers ‘n paar jaar gemis het. Dalk van die Kaapse skole? Maar daar kan nie baie wees nie…

    Dit lyk of daar ‘n paar ekstra wedstryde bygekom het vir saterdag, op die fixtures wys dit Menlo tot by 4 de span en o/16 A,B en c. (13 wedstryde in totaal). Dit lyk my menlo het al hulle seuns gevra om te speel en dalk is daar ‘n paar van die beserings ook terug. Alhoewel ek nog steeds nie saamstem nie, krediet vir Menlo. Wie weet dalk is daar nog ‘n paar opskuddings by van die spanne, en dan sal ek moet verskoning vra dat ek hulle so onderskat het, hoop net daar is geen beserings aan beide kante nie.

    As a Menlo and Affies parent I agree that this fixture should be cancelled. The junior A teams of Menlo will be competitive but Menlo simply does not have the depth or quality otherwise. There is no shame in it, we all know Menlo is overhauling its rugby program. Subjecting teams to 100-0 scores is simply not on.

    Apologies I seemed to have messed up the Garsfontein C and D team, The C team only lost by around 40 against Affies D, not 100, (that was the D team against E), still a remarkable comeback and well done to the coaches and players.
    I believe as a parent and old parent, from both schools they should cancel, (there is nothing to gain in this fixture for this year with the exams and injuries and craven week focus) but you are correct, Menlo can’t afford to cancel so will probably take it on the chin, and I don’t think Affies will cancel as the u/14a team of Affies have an opportunity to at least win another game :wink: .

    I agree with you that one should not run away from a fixture. I was one of the biggest critique of Die Menlopark last year when they cancelled the Affie fixture, BUT we all know that Die Menlopark should have been playing in the Shield competition this year and was “artificially” kept in the Cup, therefore my comment that this year I would not mind if the Affies fixture is cancelled, because it is simply not “krag teen krag” anymore. Garsfontein proved it against Die Menlo last Saturday AND being in the middle of the exams just adds another motivation to cancel the fixture….and yes maybe Affies and others should then have a re-look at Die Menlo fixture in the future.

    My two cents worth…

    I reacted to someone on the blog stating that the Garsfontein u/14C side needed coaching… I made the point that they are very well coached and has a very experienced coach in place looking after our C and D side. I take my hat off to those boys who played VERY well on Saturday. It must be some kind of record though, taking a 100 and then giving a hundred in the same season.

    On Menlo playing Affies: I fully disagree. If Menlo decides to withdraw again like last year, I do not think Affies will (or should) ever play them again. One should not just run away from a fixture, I cannot and will not ever agree to that. Stand up and fight!

    Have a good week!

    Ek weet wel dat die plan is dat Affies se C, D spanne in die onder ouderdom spanne teen Die Menlopark se B, C spanne gaan speel, maar moet dit heel waarskynlik eerder Affies se E en F spanne wees om dit darem effens kompterend te maak. Die Menlo trots hulleself dat hulle nog krag teen krag wil speel so twyfel ek of hulle sal toelaat dat bv. Affiese 2e span teen Die Menlo se 1e span sal speel, MAAR dan stem ek 100% saam, kanselleer eerder weer die wedstryd soos verlede jaar as Die Menlo te veel beserings het en dit ‘n 100 punte wedstryd gaan wees.

    When Garsies played Affies earlier this year, some comments were made when Affies u/14 E team beat Garsfontein U/14 C 103 -3. I see That same team from Garsfontein won Menlopark u/14 C this past weekend by 100 – 0. That is in my opinion the most bizarre turn around, or just shows how different the depth is, in these schools with the amount of boys playing rugby, but well done to those boys for not giving up after the huge loss against Affies.
    As an old Menlopark parent and Affies parent I honestly don’t see the point of Menlo playing Affies this weekend.
    It is in the middle of exams and with Menlo again struggling with a lot of injuries and we know they currently don’t have the boys to cover those injuries, it would be better for the Affies players that made the bulls teams, to rest this weekend, they already playing on Tuesday for the bulls, so a rest on Saturday won’t do any harm.
