    Yeah, the jury is out on the new ex Queens head. I’ve not seen much happen yet. Time will tell. A visionary would have moved Glenwood to Ballito. Ashton in 20 years will be tier 1. Money makes the world go round. Northwood in the up due to location & good leadership, the rugby vs you guys will get ugly across the board…

    It is sad to see. The wheel turns. 10 years ago you would never have been able to imagine having this view of Glenwood in terms of their rugby. DHS managed to turn things around, but yes took a lot of money and strong leadership intent on fixing things. The area is working against Glenwood, but its still the closest for anyone living South, and with the right leadership things can slowly turn around.

    Not sure what poaching means anymore, it’s a free for all everywhere. Glenwood is heavily Zulu & Xhosa so may attract those kids now. The Stellies & Pretoria crew will be happy with Glenwood’s demise, they always didn’t like them as pretenders even if Glenwood has a great history with at least 7 Boks

    Not sure I agree, DHS have pumped money into the school for the past 5 years, look at their rise. Glenwood OBs are not as engaged, the new head needs to make a concerted effort to get OBs involved. Even small donations across a few thousand adds up. Unfortunately it’s not the school it used to be & in a very rundown area. I drove through there in Oct, I was shocked. The Glenwood waterpolo results are embarrassing & I bet the swimming too. The 1st’s lost by 25 odd goals to Hilton. Steve La Marques, Craig Roy & others would be disappointed. Cricket results are poor too. Seems we back to mid 90s mediocrity. The rugby season will be tough & 3 traditional fixtures essentially gone….

    Everyone could do with a bit more money. I don’t think Glenwood has fallen off the map, there is just a lot more competition from local rival schools to acquire talented players. So a decade back Glenwood might have got 9/10 of the quality available and now they they are restricted to perhaps 2/10 because other 7 got matched or better offers from local rival schools.

    No doubt KZN SBR is a lot better off due to all the players acquired from out of the province who add value to all the A-teams from u14 to 1st XV level. But it comes at a substantial expense. Since the state schools have challenges with non-fees payers, that funding for sportsmen is highly reliant on outside funds so they are perhaps a bit more volatile and relative to confidence in the abilities of schools management or possibly even to a sponsor’s kids being at the school, in which case its normally just a short-term deal.

    A number of the KZN schools ensure they play a out of town team first up, but Northwood always seems to just go straight into the local season, with a tough team like Hilton first up again! Surely a real hit out prior to this would be better? I know they normally play a local club team maybe to warm up, but perhaps a real fixture would be worthwhile.

    No money ? What’s going on with Glenwood? They poached EC u13s so I’m shocked they don’t have money

    The main issue in KZN is that until the privates and Westville agree to play third term fixtures, there are bound to be ongoing problems fitting in all fixtures. It’s a pity.
    This season the crucial dates are:
    Sat 6 April – privates on holiday
    Sat 13 April – privates on holiday
    Sat 18 May – privates midterm holiday
    Sat 08 Jun – government schools out of action due to exams
    Sat 15 Jun – government schools out of action due to exams
    So there are 5 Saturdays during the second term when matches between government and private schools are not possible. It makes scheduling a nightmare and as a result every season something has to give. Invariably it’s the government vs private derbies. For example last season a disappointment was that Maritzburg College 1sts did not play the Kearsney 1sts.
    Ideally the privates and Ville should dedicate the first 3 weekends of the third term to rugby and start the soccer after that.

    Glad that the Natal sides all seem to have skipped on going to the North South Tournament. last year was too much rugby. Glenwood played i think 10 fixtures in 36 days. absolutely wrecked those boys in my opinion and should not have happened!!!

    I agree. I didn’t note the none MHC fixture. Any particular reason or the usual nonsense as to who said what and allegedly poached someone?

    Very sad to see no DHS or Michaelhouse fixture for Glenwood & a nonsense fixture vs Hilton at a trials match. Three of Glenwood’s oldest rivals. Glenwood will be poor this year & lucky to win 40% their fixtures. A fall from grace in 5 years, sad to see. No money no wins…

    DHS TESTER

    If indeed correct. DHS fixture against Rondebosch a week before Kearsney Easter Festival could be a great showpiece to see where both these teams stand.

    Interesting to see that St. Charles vs. Clifton has a home and away fixture. I see this as a good thing.
    Clifton also giving Suid-Natal a game is certainly not a given as to who might win this. Kudus to both teams!
