Glenwood supporters with weekend plans that did not involve attending rugby at Dixons field this Saturday the 21st of July, might just have to reconsider.
The reason being, Glenwood 1st XV are taking on English touring school Kirkham Grammar in what should be a really good match-up. Kirkham are from an area just outside Preston (North of Liverpool and Manchester). Their tour seemed fairly low key affair until they registered a 29-28 win against SACS in Cape Town a few days ago. In most seasons a win against the Western Province Premier League strugglers probably would not mean that much but this year the oldest school in South Africa has a very good side. As a result the victory by Kirkham adds a considerable amount of weight to the challenge they should pose to Glenwood, making the game definitely worthwhile to attend.
Other Glenwood age-group teams will also be in action against the Durban Development at the same venue in the lead up to the main game.
