Grey Rugby Festival 2022

The Grey High Rugby Festival is returning with a bit of oomph!

An objective of  a school sports festival is to bring together schools from around the country and in this respect the organisers from the Friendly City have done a first class job.

Four well-known Western Cape schools (including Outeniqua), three top Gauteng English-medium boys’ high schools and three of KZNs top league schools join many of the Eastern Cape elite rugby schools.

Outeniqua from George have opted against the costly trip to Pretoria to be part of the Noord-Suid tournament and are now set to add great schoolboy rugby viewing value to the Grey High School Rugby Festival.

  1. A great festival yet again from Grey. Heartbreaking for Queens, they are a lot better than those two losses suggest.

  2. Dit is goed om te sien dat skolerugby nie net gaan oor hoe groter hoe beter hoe sterker nie.
    Baie goeie oorwinning vir Bishops.


  3. @beet: yes Beet. It were not a decision taken lightly. So new opposition bring new challenges. At least I am now only 200km from the action. :lol:

  4. @Arend: Yeah I miss them at Noord Suid esp since they were one of the first big schools to commit when the tournament was still growing but great see the attraction value they will add at Grey HS Fest.

    Also I think there was a budget consideration. I’m sure the parents who otherwise would have had to fork out big bucks to be part of the Pretoria experience are appreciative of the decisions made.
