    That sounds like success to me!

    I’ll be over for K-Day next year, will grab a drink at the Vern if you’re over:)

    I was the last to leave the Highlander on Friday night and one of the last to leave Volo (in Kenton) in the early hours of Sunday morning, so the games off the field were a success….in my opinion!
    .
    I’ve yet to visit Kingswood, so I might have to make the trip up next year when Kingswood host K-Day. Apparently, Kingswood is a better venue to watch rugby (more of a cauldron) and The Wyvern runs a lot slicker than the Highlander.

    How were the games off the field? ;)

    I must commend SAC for the way they played. Controlled territory and possession, and took their chances when they presented themselves. The KC set piece let them down (theme of the season) and couldn’t give their backs enough ball. By all accounts another great K-Day, long may it last!

    It was a very tight game – never more than one score in it. As one might expect from a derby, both teams gave 100%, but made quite a few errors. SAC lead for most of the game, but were slowly worn down by Kingswood – partly as Kingswood were larger. With about 30 seconds to go, SAC were down by 22 to 15 but were on attack. Their flyhalf kicked a high ball into space in Kingswood’s 22 – while it was in the air, my mate said, “Why did he kick it?” Then…it landed with a very awkward bounce and a SAC backline player caught it and ran 15m to the tryline – bedlam! My mate then said, “Well…what do I know?” To be fair to him, he probably knows a reasonable amount given his son played flyhalf for SA u20. :lol: :lol:
    .
    After the successful conversion, the SAC schoolboys invaded the field in joy. As all the SAC teams beat their Kingswood counterparts very comfortably, one might’ve expected the same to happen at 1st team level. However, Kingswood have 10 CW players this year to none for SAC, so the former started as firm favourites. Thus, SAC snatching a draw at the death in such dramatic circumstances was probably a bit like a win for the hosts.

    Well my prediction a tad out in fact Hilton didn’t win the match, MHS lost it! Congratulations Hilton on capitalising on House’ schoolboy errors!

    I have given up picking a winner in KZN derbies – the players contrive to get a result that could not be predicted.

    My money is on House for a bounce back win. Playing at home and backs to the wall after 2 loses. House by 7

    Statistically the two teams are snug with Hilton one over House. Four old boy weekends in a row for the Balgowan boys – College, house, DHS and Kearsney the hamstring. Hilton by 5

    I’m off to G-town to watch K-day. St Andrew’s will be the underdogs, but I will be cheering for them, as a good mate’s son is the 1st team captain.

    Prophets and Saints of da city:
    St John’s 35 – 21 St Albans (Gauteng Diocesan bragging rights stay with Johannians)
    St David’s 29 – 16 St Benedicts (SD Marist Inanda to win friendly Jhb Catholic schools derby, Bennies bounced)
    Michaelhouse 22 – 19 Hilton (MH shades the Mink & Manure derby, HC’s tight shorts cut off vital circulation)
    St Andrews 25 – 20 Kingswood (the west side is the best side in G-town)
    St Stithians 18 – 30 Kearsney (locals competitive but visitors win the Jhb-Kzn Methodist derby)

    PREDICTIONS FOR THIS WEEKEND

    Our Bookies have the following:
    Kearsney by 16 Pts
    Kingswood by 10 Pts
    St Johns College by 7 Pts
    St Davids Marists by 17 Pts
    Hopefield by 26 Pts
    Hudson Park by 42 Pts
    Hilton by 7 Pts
    – Of course Hilton/MHS can swing both ways due to home advantage in favour of House & the 2nd leg of the derby!
