Graeme College in Grahamstown will once again play hosts to a well organised early season rugby day that attracts most of the Eastern Cape’s top rugby schools annually. Graeme is expected to field a fairly competitive team in 2017 and will test themselves against provincial powerhouses Selborne in the main match.
The annual Border Schools’ Rugby Day will take place at Selborne on 18 March 2017. It is the starting point of what promises to be an interesting regional season. At this early stage not too many locals are prepared to put their heads on the block and predict who of three big guns Dale, Queen’s or Selborne will finish the season on top.
