    @Ploegskaar (Comment #194)
    I watched the game after your comment. Would definitely not describe the field as an absolute cow patch (or maybe you know more about cows and patches…). BL made a lot of unforced errors and looked a bit off. Maybe just a bit rusty after the long lay off. Durbanville definitely pitched for the contest though. Hopefully BL can rectify it on Saturday against Bosch…

    On a lighter note, Landbou managed to scrape through 27-22 on an absolute cow patch in Pampoenkraal yesterday. Game provided good optics of how influential the field and conditions are going to be 3rd term. With more rain heading this way Thursday and Friday, teams will have to adapt quickly, otherwise a few big slips are on the cards

    I have no obsession with the article. I just get p1ssed off if someone posts it to substantiate a claim, but when it is proven not only wrong but a deliberate lie to peddle passports or similar, the commenter disappears without apology. That is disturbing. My opinion may not be the most informed from a rugby point of view, I am not as knowledgeable as e.g. Kaya85, Kantman, Agter-die-pale-Pa, beet or Tzavosky, etc. but to me the blog will be much poorer without you, as in much poorer. I just wish you would cut back on certain opinions I find to be antithesis to constructive-teambuilding-kakpraat if such a thing exists.

    Hopper go eat a Cornish road kill pie.
    In future why don’t you go hang out at UK English school rugby blogs, then you don’t have to stoop so low as to engage with another language…oh be careful not to take your language intolerance to the Welsh, they will skin you alive, same with Scots who won’t stand for your self-importance…do me a favour and don’t tell anyone there that you are S Africa or ex-S African, it’s eejits like you who give Saffas a bad name.

    I hereby permanently revoke for ever your position on the k@kpraat list, you WISH you could tell a yarn or an interesting story with the wit and verbal dexterity of so many bloggers. The Afrikaans language used by many of the bloggers is rich, varied, humorous, with slang, jargon, idioms, regional expressions and everything else rolled into it…

    Why bother reading HOPPER posts because he says the same thing over and over and over…

    Your obsession with that article is a little disturbing, we all know a huge number of highly qualified doctors, lawyers, engineers etc have left SA, taking with them their taxes and spending in the country. Maybe let’s use capital flight stats instead. There will never be accurate stats because the SA border control, has no idea and they cannot connect databases up. Also, there are thousands who had European passports who just got up and left. Stating something on this site using a source is not dishonest, I was just the messenger. English schools in KZN and other schools in SA used to mock Glenwood for having Afrikaans calls, we didn’t care about it. Glenwood is a middle income school with no reason for prejudice. I will ignore daft comments from you and others like this in future, I won’t stoop to low IQ debate.

    Come on Hopper. You said millionSSSSS, stop being dishonest, and quoted a number above 2 million and then I pointed out to you that the fake site you quoted from, itself referred to information that proves them wrong, complete contradiction in their own reference, and I stated that the average person accepting the stats do not possess the cogitation and/or will to detect the clear mala fide in the article and independently verify your article’s claim, which turned out to be a bizarre lie. We can revisit your posts anytime, if you want to deal with the embarrassment to now be proven dishonest too. “Audited stats” lol. Why would anyone mock Glenwood as Afrikaans? What to mock for? Do you think it should be something to mock about? That inferiority complex again, an abyss as deep as the Mariana Trench. The people that mocked you and Glenwood over the years mocked you for very different reasons and were mostly from “traditional English KZN schools” as you put it.So do not blame anyone else. You do not absolutely have to communicate with us, ignore us, and only speak Beowulf kitchen Dutch if you want.

    He wasn’t of my era, I watched from the early 90s onwards when Uli Schmidt ruled. His name never jumped out at me like Rudi Visagie, Wahl Bartmann, Adri Geldenhuys etc. He was obviously known more outside of KZN then, my dad never mentioned him once & he was a DHS old boy. Never hated Afrikaners, in fact the opposite, I admire their faith, tenacity & honesty. I have very many Afrikaans friends here in the UK who too saw the light 👍

    To state that Gage was “Pretty good ” makes a mockery of your rugby knowledge…he was the best schoolboy player KZN produced in a genaration ,SA Schools ,SA defence force ,SA students ,SA u 20 ,SA A and finally Springboks he was on course to be the nr1 choice hooker for Kitch Kristy tragedy prevented that …if he did not die his name would’ve been mentioned in the same groups as Du Rand ,Smit,Burger ,Venter ,Du Toit and Etsebeth….

    Those were not fake stats boetie, over a million Saffas have left, some officially most not. 70% of my Saffa mates here had European passports already. Point was those ‘stats’ were poor and undercounted at best. I wrongly used plural for million, to say millions, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the official audited stat was 2 million. Those GOB detractors were current management and OBs involved at the school, of course they won’t like to be called out. Happy to discuss it with them face to face in an adult way. Search Mbembe Payi of DHS, the other one caught that no speaks of. There have been many others caught and swept under the carpet, mostly by other KZN schools scared of catching the same bad press……leafy suburbs and capital Duzi rats. Glad your school is 150 years old with 50 Boks, Glenwood is 114 years old and has 8 Boks, not too bad, probably ranked in the Top 20 schools for Boks produced. My son is probably going to go to a school here which is 600 years old, perspective is key. Glenwood is no longer an ‘Afrikaans’ school as many detractors used to mock us for, more likely to be Zulu now. I don’t have an inferiority complex, I don’t give a F what others think, too old to bother and I’m very happy with my position within my industry. You do you and I’ll do me….

    The clue comes from the words ‘school’ & ‘boy’, not skool and seuns, but yes it’s for all people BUT originally it was for KZN bloggers to debate in English. Yes, Shaun Gage was pretty good, so was Brent Moyle, Andy Aitken and many other souties. My point was the blog became a free for all & full of Afrikaans twak that many English bloggers got bored of…literally glazed over hundreds of posts, many mocking other bloggers in Afrikaans….

    KES definitely win the u15A game. Our u15s are out of sorts.

    The KES u14A team too. They probably record the biggest score on the day. I heard KES splashed the cash on like 10+ of these u14s? I saw they beat Boys High by damn near 50 points and that Boys High u14A team is highly rated as well.

    KES away is still a bruising fixture across the board for us. We won’t win many games. 1st XV as is the case most times, holds the best chance; even the 16A game I give KES by 10, there’s a chance we may throw a spanner in the works in this game but I doubt it.
    Maybe 2nd team also, especially now given this midweek game you make mention of, but I’d still tip KES.

    Something interesting against Monnas I noticed that when we were in the Monnas half and Monnas had possession, we had a man in our 22-ish or there about hugging the touch line, I think this is in preparation for Moyo’s boot on Saturday and that 50-22 that put us under immense pressure last time around – someone there to recieve it and launch a counter attack. Additionally I think there needs to be 3 designated forwards tasked at upsetting Moyo and these kicks, a very aggressive chargers if KES look to set it up.

    Seems very odd, the EG Jansen practise fixture? I’ve subsequently heard it has been cancelled but strange either way… Anyway, Saturday is going to be epic. Fixtures that worry me, 1sts, 16A, 15A… boys were in good spirits and equally good form against PBHS. I feel they’ll be going into the weekend bouyant and highly motivated!! 2nds/3rds do have a midweek fixture against a touring Welsh side. Not ideal at all… hopefully no injuries and everyone is fit and firing come Saturday!!

    I am not in the know but I hope not.. That would be an almighty “practise” session.. One that won’t feel much like a practise game lol. Why such strong opposition and physical opposition the week of KES? But I wouldn’t be overly shocked if it true, Jeppe is weird. They’ll even make it Away to further complicate their lives leading up to Saturday; anything to make life harder for themselves, count Jeppe in.

    @Ringo, you proper Jeppe man, these kids must beat KES end of story. For all the reasons you are saying without actually saying them. The only school in the history of planet Earth that beats Grey, puts 50 basically on Monnas in Krugersdorp, and then fails to beat like for like English boys groomed like them that are 4km from them. It’s nonsense, Jeppe can never just be complete, there’s always a weird narrative that takes the lead on year on year basis, and warranted most times. KES can’t win twice.
    Hit them and hit them hard. Leave it all out there. I don’t want to watch the b*ll I watched in Kensington. KES won’t be hospitable, let it be ugly and unpleasant if it must be; we go in to the lions den and we win, because we are able to.

    Chinedu very much a like for like replacement for Sam. Wonder how comfortable he is on the flank? He seems quite versatile having started his REDS season off at lock. I’d go JK at 6, Chinedu 7 and KB at 8. Hope all the boys are fit and ready to go. PBHS was horribly physical! Their results this season belies their actual on field ability. 5 representatives in the Bulls Craven Week side is probably a truer reflection. They brought proper mongrel on Saturday and made life incredibly uncomfortable for the REDS.
    Anyway, looking forward to Saturday. It has the makings of yet another classic between these 2 arch rivals!
    Can someone in the know clarify, Jeppe’s 1st/2nds have a trip to EG Jansen on Tuesday afternoon for “practise”?

    Eish Grassy, what a divisive post. Wrong on so many levels. I truly cannot recall bigger kakpraat than you posting those fake stats from a fake site on expatriate numbers, and disappearing without a manly apology after your bullshit has been called. Although I deliberately excluded myself from any gang attacks on you, as I do not understand it or approve of it, I did follow them, and they were very disproportionately from traditional English KZN schools. A GOB also participated. So were the yesteryear attacks on GW. They were mostly from KZN “traditional” English schools that refused to accept GW as a traditional English KZN rugby school, regarded by them as a wannabe despite the historical stats you posted. You are barking up the wrong tree really.Your problem lies in KZN. I doubt any school had a Siya Tom like situation. That was extreme. I felt very sorry for him back in the day. Just a young man that got lost and stuck in the hopes of others who never cared for him in the least. My Alma Mater produced more than 50 Springboks and is more than 150 years old, yet I believe will be much poorer, especially in terms of rugby and friendships, without the new kids on the block, or wannabe’s as you call them. I am sad for Glenwood’s hard time, and hope these pass soon. Perhaps they should have their lineout calls in the language you feel threatens you and the blog. It worked last time, works for 4 WC’s, cannot be that bad for rugby. Good luck with your inferiority complex.

    I like how you write not fuelled by anger and not wielding a keyboard machete like I often do…. as a casual not so casual fan I mean me and my buddy drove to Krugersdorp which is very far I mean I passed more border post than when we go to Affies and PTA Boys High…. so what I am trying to say I follow the boys around like I said earlier in the year it is cheaper than Therapy.. and judging by what I saw on Saturday to be perfectly honest this may well and truly be the best Jeppe 1st team ever ….. in Krugersdorp we cracked open a couple of beers backed the bakkie up against the the school fence and thoroughly enjoyed the rugby great seats those we had on Saturday must say proper VIP section ….. great game despite that refs and his assistants best attempts with our luck we will get him again this coming Saturday…. I know we old boys well atleast some of us well let me say used to have this obsession with Kes ….. but in all honesty we do not need to win this coming Saturday … cause you know what after speaking to the number 9 don’t know how that kid does it he is shorter than me and number 8 what a decent and humble boy well done to those kids parents stunning job they have done raising two fine gentleman. After the win this past weekend I mean to beat Monnas at Monnas those kids are awesome well mannered kids and deserve all the rugby accolades they get…. they will be a success in whichever endeavor they choose in life …. but on the people over the hill 4 km away ….. I will give their bad hosting another skip thank you no thank you 😊

    Got you. Yes that 8 looks good as well.
    So it is only Sam out for the weekend?
    Man we really need all the luck we can get because we really need to win on Saturday. I will be very sad if we lose.. I felt like in Kensington, the KES big 3 really came to the party more than our big 3 who on paper is Poulton(1), Khosa(8) and Rashivaga(13). I would throw McMillen our 12 in there as well I think he had an unfortunate Craven Week. But the backline in general were poor against KES. I think playing in front of your own old boys is a lot more pressure than going Away. I hope this is the case for our sake on Saturday.
    The occasion last time round I think was too large for those poor Jeppe Boys, it’s never been that full of Jeppe old boys.

    Looking forward to Saturday. KES is hostile for Jeppe, not much designated seating as well – as it should be according to me. If you’re a Jeppe punter and you come after 10am you might as well stay home. For me it’s among the hardest grounds in SA to get a result. But we will be present and rowwwddyyyyyyy, and it will be the meat of Teddy Bears that we are hungry for!

    Bruwer(7) broke his tibia. Kobrowisky had an injury but is back this week. 8 on Saturday is also an AW player but started the season playing lock for 1sts & then moved to 8 for 2nds – very good player.

    Well Beet started this as a lekker spot for English speaking KZN school supporters to chat, lekker days with old Gungets Tuft etc BUT over the years it’s rapidly been taken over by Afrikaans bloggers supporting wannabe traditional schools. Not all, of course there are legends like Boishaaipa BUT the majority are kak praaters now, stirring up bloggers like me. I’ve been tempted to start my own blog many times but just never got around to doing it. Beet deserves a huge amount of credit for keeping this platform open for so long and dealing with all the kak, from bloggers, headmasters, coaches etc. I’m sure he’s even been threatened a few times. I was back in the day, hence my awol period. It got too heated and no longer fun. As time goes by my affiliation with Glenwood has decreased, the school isn’t how I remember it BUT once a GOB always a GOB. For us the whole Trevor Kershaw thing became an embarrassment and then the constant hatred about Glenwood’s relative success, we were never world beaters, we just became competitive with the top 10. I mean one win and a draw vs Grey Bloem in 20 years isn’t exactly setting the world on fire. Now that Glenwood is battling the knives are not out. It’s funny how things Glenwood did 10 years ago are now all fine and dandy. The Siyabonga Tom age issue didn’t help BUT I can assure you many schools had that age issue but swept things under the carpet. Glenwood unfairly got a lot of stick for that. I like the banter here, as long as it stays clean and fun. Look forward to next season….may watch from afar….

    I’ll accept the crown in honour, it’s to try and break up the huge amount of drivel on this site. Saffas seem to think the world revolves around the tip of Africa, it doesn’t. The best beef, the best mountains, the best beaches, sorry chinas, it’s not. The Argies have the best beef and by miles, check out their U20 side handing the baby boks their own asses. My own Aberdeen Angus billies kills all the kak I’ve tried in SA. I don’t live in Cornwall, I was just there on holiday, it’s a beautiful place and is actually an equal to the Cape, check our Porthcurno beach. I live in Hertfordshire, a town called Harpenden, in a lovely 4 bed house, with granny flat, my own brick braai, skottel, weber, ouni pizza oven, gazebo etc, with horse paddocks surrounding me, not in a pokey flat like most Saffas think we do. Glenwood have been kak this year, it was expected, years of lack of funds to recruit like the rest. If people think DHS’s success isn’t bought, they are deluded. Same with Hilton, Michaelhouse, Westville etc. Northwood’s success is more organic and sustainable. Glenwood is located in one of the worst areas in an already run down city, so tough to attract the best. If I was the head of Glenwood I would be looking at grounds in Ballito asap. Glenwood will be back in the coming years BUT not top 10, we will leave that to Grey Bloem, Monnas, Affies, Paarl Gim, Boishaai, Paul Roos etc. SA need to shift the emphasis on schools and to clubs and U20s, or the Boks won’t be WC for too long…

    Dear Mr @Kaya 85, with reference to your very poor predictions re. Die Anker’s game on Saturday, I would strongly advise you from refraining making such shocking predictions…old folkes actualy trusted your judgment and now they have lost their houses, their cars etc etc on the bets they made according to YOUR bad predictions….and to top it all, lots of Brakpan people are suffering psychologically this morning, because of the derogatory statement you made that Brakpan is a zoo!…Shocking!

    Broken leg? Ouch! Who?
    If I am reading this correctly it sounds like you have 3 forward players out at the minute?
    When I watched towards the end I noticed your AW flank wasn’t playing, Kabriowsky I believe – he is really good I like him.
    I didnt recognize that 8th man yesterday as well but I noticed Maake was moved from 8 to 6, in line with his SA Schools position, where I believe he will have a longer career in rugby.

    Yes they did, at the end of the 2022 season Kingswood took a few players from that great u16 side, this caused Hudson to cut ties with Kingswood. Hudson have done well to get some great results this year despite losing players to other schools.

    KES & PBHS both had 5 CW selections. KES had 5 AW selections but 1 had to withdraw due to injury & is still injured. KES were without a key loose forward (AW) & then lost another flank with a broken leg 15 minutes in. PBHS have improved and are a good team with a solid pack of forwards who have always mauled well. Remember that this group beat Jeppe at U16 level 2 years ago. They never looked like winning yesterday but defended well & put up a good fight. The KES/Jeppe game this coming weekend will indeed be a massive game.

    The Affies/Maritzburg game must be an exception then, since I notice a few comments of scrappy games on Saturday. It was an absolute brilliant school boy rugby game with no signs of a long break noticed in either team. A humdinger and much better than any of the Saru crap dished up in the previous 6 weeks.

    Jip I saw Garsies lost against Nelspruit. There are always a surprise in some of these games just after a very long break. I think it was about 6 to 7 weeks since they last played.The Waterkloof/ Helpmekaar game was also scrappy in the last 10 minutes. Handling errors caused the lead to change about 3 times in the last 10 minutes with Waterkloof ending up to be the lucky winners due to a fatal error from Helpmekaar in injury time.

    Was confident we’d win but I didn’t think it would be this well.
    Very very proud of the boys, the performance wasn’t perfect but we handled the monents well. Our fullback Simelane gave 4 penalties away by himself, that needs to improve.
    The u19s, Coetzee, Klaasen and Zulu who didn’t get a chance to go to the Provincial Weeks really looked fresh and like they missed playing rugby, they had good games.
    We will be in Houghton next week – we just want to have a discussion with KES 😊

    Vir my is Bloem, sowel as jou geboortedorp in die Kroo en jou huidige woning net wonderlike plekke. Ek dink nie daar is enige plek in SA waarvan ek nie hou nie maar ou Bloem en Limpopo is super spesiaal. Snor City/Djouville/Petoorsdorp ook. Oh donner maar Limpopo, Loskop, ou Bloem is darem maar pragtig. In die 80’s het ek ‘n herhalende winter (tromboon!!!) vakansie romanse met ‘n St Michaels girl gehad. En voor dit het ek het altyd gedink Engels is onbekend in die Vrystaat. Die een ding wat Bloem voorsprong gee is Naval Hill. Laat darem maar so bietjie dink aan Red Hill in Simonsstad, Simonsberg Duikskool ens…. Inelkgeval, ek moet nog goeie seunsskole in Bloem raak google, verskoon asseblief dok.Ek kry dit net nie reg nie…..

True grit en vasbyt en kop soos min. Ek het al ‘n benoude oomblik by Brakpan Dam beleef. Wat Bloem betref, mal oor ou Bloem, pragtige dele, ryk geskiedenis great mense.

    Toe Simon van der Stel in 1679 op Stellenbosch kaarte optrek het die Eersterivier nadat hy Suid van vandag se Spier by Compagniesdrift oor die rivier is, het die Eersterivier in twee groot strome gevloei voor PRG verby, een in Noordwal, een in Suidwal, en daar was ‘n eiland vol hardehout bome voor Prima, Nova en die Kweekskool. Boonop was die rivier toe nie gekanaliseer in ‘n sloot in nie, maar gelyk met vandag se teeroppervlakte. Die rivier was vol, nou uitgestorwe spesies soos die Eersterivier witvis en Eersterivier rooivlerkie. Nou is dit vol ongekultiveerde vis soos karp en Clarias. Ek dink die konneksie met die Theewaterskloofdam via die Kleinplaasdam in die 70’s het ekologies baie skade aangerig. Net die Jakkalsvlei rivier in Jonkershoek het ‘n voorbeeld gebly van wat kon wees…..

    Stormwater en rioollyne wat nou al vir jare nie onderhou is nie, is die groot probleem. Dis so 5 strate in Strand wat elke jaar probleme optel as dit baie reën. Daar is ‘n “karavaanpark” reg langs die rivier wat elke jaar oorstroom as dit baie reën. Die rivier was toegegroei, maar niks word daaraan gedoen nie.
    Wat die sluit van skole aan betref is dit maar ‘n moelike situasie. By bv PRG, LS Eikestad, HS en LS Stellenbosch is alles ok en die kinders sou kon skoolgaan, maar in bv Kayimande en Cloetesville is dit nie. Nou moet hulle ‘n hele streek se skole sluit. Net so in Paarl.

    Ek dink dit is my punt – meeste hiervan is ons eie toedoen. Lank reeds dat ons stormwater nie bestuur nie of foute maak – soos nie die Bergrivierdam se sluise betyds oopmaak verlede jaar nie.
    My probleem is dat ons maar sag raak as ‘n normale Kaapse winter storm ons weer skole laat toemaak – dit is nou al drie dae hierdie jaar wat kinders skooltyd verloor. Leer die manne dan niks uit vorige jare se stormwater probleme nie? Sien darem die Stellenboschers het die Eersterivier se walle oorgedoen en dit het gewerk?
    Voel of Rampbestuur die kitaar slaan in stede van RampVoorkoming – daar is te min insentief om te verhoed, en te veel insentief vir bestuur.

    Die Kleinrivier het sy walle oorstroom en elke brug, nuut en oud, gebreek die afgelope jaar, meer as die vorige 30 jaar tesame. Die media blaas dit wel op, jy is korrek, maar dit bly steeds quasi-nood toestande en klaarblyklik later vandag ‘n volswange noodtoestand. As Bettiesbaai se Stoney Point pikkewyne in Draadbaai en Aasbank se strate rondswem in vars water, watervalle oor die Blesberg stort en die Vark se snoet die pad versper, en potensieel Garsfontein kinders karpe doodslaan in die Zoetendal Vlei om te eet, visse wat almal groter is as befaamde papgooier Smallies se PB, dan weet jy……Steeds keur ons provinsie, Little Europe, meer bouplanne goed elke jaar as die res van SA saam. Supremacy het die Wes-Kaap gekies, nie ons inwoners se skuld nie.

    Definitief nie. Ek ry gister werk toe, en op die een stuk van die pad was die water amper ‘n meter diep. Gepaard met dit is die Kaapse wind ook hier. Die paaie is definitief nie veilig nie.

    EGJansen vs Menlopark.Menlopark cancelled some big games before the break so that their injured players can recover for the Noordvaal Cup . EG Jansen must definitely not underestimate Menlopark and must be prepared for the onslaught. EGJ definitely do not want to be caught off guard and forfeit their unbeaten streak in the Noordvaal Cup so far this year.

    That might be. It is very wet and the rain will continue until Sunday. Especially the southern suburbs are extremely wet.

    I will not be surprised if some games in the Cape will not be cancelled as the rain has caused havoc on the playing surfaces of most fields.

    Paar groot games die naweek: PRG-Oakdale gaan moeilik wees in Riversdale. Bietjie bekommerd vir dié een. Monnas-Jeppe en Kloof-Helpies behoort ook goed te wees. Dink HJS gaan net té veel wees vir Stellenberg in die Paarl. As die upset vir die naweek, roep ek Pretoria Boys oor KES.
