Bishops at home vs Wynberg after 10 on the road

Believe it or not, Bishops feel like they are setting two season records today. After 10 matches at away venues, today will be their first of just 5 home matches on the Piley Rees, and in spite of it being a high profile match against a strong Wynberg team, the match will not be streamed.

The standout Bishops team welcome back ten players who were rested against Strand a week ago.

Wynberg ended the last of the unbeaten runs, when the defeated Bishops 20-14.

Comments on the match in this link below:


  1. It is great that the southern suburb schools are being competitive again. A trip to Bishops, Rondebosch, SACS and Wynberg is not a “rest” day anymore where you can rest some 1st team players. I am just happy PRG get to play Wynberg in Stellenbosch. Not that it will be easy. PRG first need to deal with Rondebosch in Rondebosch next Saturday though. And that will be very tough.

  2. @Gemini: The season has unfolded is such a way that Wynberg’s star is shining brightly at the moment and they deserve the accolades. A few weeks ago a lot of praise was heaped on Rondebosch based on their results against Boishaai. All really good for SBR in Cape Town.

  3. @yesnomaybe: Yeah Craig Childs of Ikeys Varsity Cup fame is the Director of Rugby and it looked like head coach Justin van Winkel was one of those die-hard club rugby players that you mentioned. I can well imagine that he is a passionate coach.

  4. @yesnomaybe: Wynberg is clearly on the move. Always very strong in cricket. Old Boys include Kallis, Allan Lamb and I think Garth Le Roux.
    Rob Louw also an old boy.
    Well done to Wynberg for obviously putting in lots of effort!

  5. Far too soon, if he came with 10 players that would be different but the foundation was laid by the ex Headmaster who appointed a director of rugby & a 1st team coach, both old boys of the school who share the same passion. This has led to current club players being appointed in all facets such as lineout & scrum coaches incl conditioning. There is also a great link between the local clubs namely False Bay & UCT with a lot of Old Boys being involved in these sides. This has led to schoolboys going to watch their coaches play later in the afternoon. This also adds value to the club system as these boys then join these prestigious clubs when they finish their schooling. The results are now starting to show & long may this continue.

  6. There is a revolution happening at Wynberg rugby and few are talking about it
