2012 SA Schools players are bigger than 1992 Boks

21 Aug, 2012 beet 5

It is just over 20 years to the day since South Africa gained readmission to the international rugby arena. Rugby has changed a fair bit in terms of the rules and the way it is played in that time but remains a game loved passionately by many South Africans both young and old. It was therefore interesting to compare some of the statistics of the first Bok team selected back in 1992 to those of the current SA Schools team.

KZN 2013 u16 Database

13 Aug, 2012 beet 160

With the 2012 Kwazulu-Natal season done and dusted, it would be nice to get a feel for the players coming through from the under-15 ranks that are likely to represent their respective schools at under-16A level in 2013. Obviously it’s too far off to expect accuracy at this stage, so the aim is really just to obtain a list of contenders for starting berths and if possible get from contributors an  idea of who they feel the standout performers were during this 2012 under-15 season.

Please post a comment below or email : beetb@telkomsa.net. Thank you.…

Colt Club Rugby Results & Logs – 05/08/2012

10 Aug, 2012 NW_Knight 0

There are no club games this weekend due to the “long weekend”.  The games at Harlequins last week went pretty much according to predictions, with Varsity College the only club to record a clean sweep in all their games. Collegians beat Hillcrest 26 – 17 in the featured U13 game, but it was a very even contest and could have gone either way. In the U15A games, Collegians and Varsity College were dominant with Collegians beating Harlequins 47 – 7.  Varsity College were in devastating form, outscoring Rovers by 9 tries to 1.…
