Spare a thought for Grey College.
While other high profile teams gear up to complete the 2022 season on their own terms (including fellow top contenders Paarl Gim who have lined up only two matches), Grey has seen their interschools schedule halved from from four to two along the way.
The two third term fixtures that have disappeared are Pretoria Boys’ High and Glenwood, who have opted for interschools clashes against KES and Maritzburg College respectively, on the dates they were originally set to play Grey.
To compound the problem, whereas a school like Paarl Gim will play two in two weeks, Grey will play Grey High on 30 July 2022 and then wait a 21-day eternity before squaring off against Paul Roos, at the traditional season-ender minus the SA Schools players.
Grey are expected to be without at least 8 regular starters for the Maroons match.
