KES Easter Rugby Festival 2013

27 February, 2013 beet 67

The King Edward VII Easter Rugby Festival is arguable the best attended school rugby festival in the country.
This year apart from the hosts KES, the big attraction team is bound to be Garsfontein who has seen a big improvement in their rugby and results in recent times. Centurion also comes off a very good 2012 season and will be hoping to build on that success. Marlow, Menlopark and Eldoraigne rank nationally amongst the unknown quanities and are capable of producing good results while Hentie Cilliers has been a good supply line to the Griffons Craven Week and Academy Week causes over the years.
