Grahamstown comes alive this Saturday when Kingswood takes on St Andrews on K-Day, one of the South Africa’s oldest and most well-attended school rugby derbies. Kingswood will host this 138th meeting since 1898 at their City Lords complex.
Last year Kingswood held out for a exciting 23-22 win to end St Andrews College’s extended unbeaten run.
It is anticipated that this year’s game will produce another very close contest, which will no doubt add to the excitement in the build-up to the game.
Amongst the wonderful traditions that are observed is a war cries showdown across the sleepy hollow of Grahamstown on the eve of the big game.
A crowd of 10000 is expected to turn up on K-Day, giving a good indication of just how popular K-Day is, was and seemingly always will be.
