Big Pearson in search of another Border giant-killing

The big close on 800kg Pearson pack will be looking to get back to winning ways with a second over a Border powerhouse.

Pearson already accounted for a major surprise by defeating Queen’s 19-11 at the Graeme Rugby Festival played during March 2024.

Last season Pearson beat Selborne 25-22.

They will take confidence from that win plus this year they will be at home in Summerstrand.

Pearson enjoyed quite a rise in Easter rugby profile as a result of attending the Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival, where they gave a good account of themselves in spite of two defeats.

Selborne toughest challenge of their short season to date has been a 21-26 defeat to the Pretoria Boys’ High Candies at the KES Easter Rugby Festival.

    I was quite impressed with them at the Kearsney Fest. They might just roll most of the big dogs in their region.

    Great to see the rise and rise of another Top contender. Never seen them play but this is fantastic.
