K-Day 2012

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.

  1. 1st and foremost,thanks to Beet for getting the blog off the ground,we understand it must’ve taken an incredible amount of time to get everything read and am sure I speak for everyone when I say we truly appreciate it

    Moving onto the matter of K-day,I think you only have to look at the expected crowd to realise the magnitude of this match,many say it comes only 2nd to the Arts Festival in Grahamstown,both teams are coming off good wins,St Andrew’s having beaten Selborne and Kingswood beat Muir,so both teams have good momentum
