  1. Glad to see Jaco’s name there – I presume this means he is fit and ready to go.

    Have heard good things about Stassen from EG Jansen

  2. Some beasts in there! Glenwood don’t have one player over 1,90cm…..KZN’s achilles heel, tall athletic locks…

    ReplyReply
  3. Interesting to note how many youngsters in EG Jansen’s pack – they are already a good side and it seems like they will have an even better side next year – the one bloke is 2m tall and still only 16 years old!

    ReplyReply
  4. Number 5, Bester for HTS Middelburg is actually a 7 or 8. But they are battling without locks this year, and because he is the brain in the lineouts they have to play him on lock. He is a very good lose forward because of his quality ball skills and speed.

  5. Actually a very nice scenario Thursday at 15h45 at Kearsney. Grey Bloem vs EG Jansen.

    If and only if…….EG beats Grey……then the Tuks playoff between Garstfontein and EG could well be the decider for no 1 in the country 2014.

    If Grey wins then we’ll never get to know who the better of them and Garsies is unless EG beats Garsies in the Tuks series.

    Pity these top schools have to play each other so early in the season.

    These festivals should have been at the end of the season where all the current year’s top performers should have played in a mini knockout thing.

    Now we’ll never get to see a Grey/Garsies clash for 2014.

    I bet you next year at some festival they’ll meet but it’s not the same then.

    The public demand blood.

    The public demand a Grey vs Garsies clash in 2014.

  6. @BoishaaiPa: I’m putting it to you, Mr BHP…………..The public demand blood.

    Go and speak to your friends there at Mutaul & General or that big talker from Georgia, please.

  7. Quite unbelievable. Glenwood’s numbers 19 & 22 have same name and look exactly the same. Weight, height and I see DOB. Oh okay then they must be twins. When my twins were born I actually also considered giving them the same name and now I regret I didn’t cause half the time I can’t tell the one from the other. At that time I thought it was unusual to give your twins the same name but now I see it does actually happen.

  8. @Andre T: Their parents must have been quite precise when measuring their food over the last 18 yrs and making sure that they go to the toilet at the same time- to ensure the exact current weight. That required a great deal of time and parenting management.@Grasshopper: KZNs achilles heel? Or strong mobile props, Or astute hookers, agile 9s, Clever, strong and quick centres. But , at least you know where to find them.

  9. @Andre T: @BOG: :mrgreen:

    Okay I fixed the duplication. Glenwood now have one seriously heavy player in their squad. Getting him out of the beer tent might be an issue tho. :mrgreen:

    ReplyReply
  10. @Andre T: Hi Andre, Unfortunately some of the smaller teams still struggle against the big names.
    It could be possible that EG will be a little “star struck” on Thursday, as they were in 2010 and 2012 and you could see a big Grey win.
    If they forget about the name of the oponent and just play the game, it might be a entertaining battle. :lol:

    ReplyReply
  11. @Grasshopper – I see Glenwood have another over aged player in the squad. Andre Terblanche – born in 1955!

    ReplyReply
  12. @Tang: They would love to have a player of my ability in their ranks.

    I think I’ll challenge their fastest player to a sprint during half time when they play us.

    Will give him a 10 yard start

  13. @valke: Dit is altyd die ding ne. Of mens in jouself kan glo en die span speel en nie die naam.

    Dit hang baie van jou coach af. Enige persoon wat al sport op n hoe vlak ( en Bog jys is nie ingesluit ) gespeel het sal weet dat jy kan hoe hard oefen en genoeg talent he, maar as jy nie die regte mind het nie en nie in jou eie vermoens glo, gaan jy dit nie maak. Die coach en afrigtingspan moet die seuns geestelik sterk maak en hulle laat glo hulle is beter as hul opponent.

    Ek sien en hoor nie meer van spelers wat die mure storm en tekere gaan in die kleedkamer. My groot vriend, Tobie Oosthuizen, was n meester van dit in die kleedkamer. Hy het dit sommer kop eerste stormgeloop van geesdrif.

    Breek daai mure af by Kearsney man, gaan mal in daai kleedkamer, raak bloeddorstig.

    Grey like dit nie as dit te fisies raak.

    Julle Boksburgers kan mos rof raak

    ReplyReply
  14. @Andre T: Miskien moet ons jou kry vir die team talk voor die game. :lol:
    Ek stem saam. Seuns is nog bietjie broos na ‘n rowwe week. Vandag weer Valke proewe.
    Hoop die outjies is reg vir ‘n paar groot games by Kearsney.

    Monnas het ook ‘n paar rowwe games daar. Sterkte !

  15. EG Jansen have a massive pack and bigger than Grey College. They can defintely take them on in front.This game will be the biggest test so far for both teams this year.They had big wins in all their games this year so far. Could be a thriller. Good luck EG Jansen. You can do it!!

    ReplyReply
  16. @jakes: GCB has never had very big packs. Size does not necessarily mean strength and mobility, supreme fitness and conditioning is preferable. But the game is not contested on paper but on the day, between 4 lines. Well have to wait and see.

  17. @ Pongola : Meighlon is quite a big lad. Very hard worker on the field(physical and great defense), conditiong not at its best. But will certainly last a game. @Beet : Phahla unfortunately injured his knee again, and will probably not play for a while as he was carried off. I think this Westville team will do well as they’re coming together well as a team.

  18. @ Bog- EG Jansen has never been on the winning side against Grey College. That itself will be a great motivational factor for them although Grey has a very strong team again this year. If ever 2013 and this year could be the chance to close that gap. But whAtever win or loose, EG Jansen will be proud to give Grey College, the nr 1 rugby school in history, probably one of their toughest matches this year.

  19. @jakes: My son played against EG Jansen at the under 16 festival at Paarl Gim. He was on the field for about 40 minutes. When I asked him how the game was, he answered as follows: “Pa dit was die hardste game van my lewe. Daai ouens is kliphard”.

    Nobody should underestimate EG.

  20. As it is holidays now hopefully the spectators will be allowed to sit on the stands and enjoy the games . Always amazes me why the best vantage points are reserved for the home school boys – don’t know too many other schools that do this !

  25. @Scrum Doctor: Scrum doctor the main stand at kearsney is probably bigger than most school grandstands so allows ample space for parents to sit. The kearsney boys singing is very much part of the school and a tradition i would hate to see stop. i WATCHED THE PAUL ROOS/Grey PE game on saturday and the school kids sat on the main stand. Hilton college the boys sit on the main stand.

  27. @sharkie: Hilty seems to differ . At Westville visiting spectators get the prime spots as is the case with most of the other schools. Our boys sit in the sun on the other side of the field . It was just very strange that prior to the main game against Westville all of the people on one side of the stands were moved as the school boys wanted to sit ( and sing) ??

    ReplyReply
  28. @sharkie: and where do the players from the other school sit??? they are after all your guests for the day,it happens at Selborne,which has a very small stand, that the Selborne kids sit on the main stand and then very little space left for parents and our guest schools parents.I find that very embarrassing.

    ReplyReply
  29. @Scrum Doctor: With respect, the 600 to 700 prime seats available to spectators on the extended Kearsney stand are far more than the “prime” spots at Westville, can’t even start to compare the venues.

    The fact that the school made a large investment to extend the stand for more visitors in order to retain their traditional scholar seating illustrates the importance of the tradition.

    Opposing school has ample comfortable seating under the trees on the opposite side of the field.

    ReplyReply
  30. @LineBreak: I think if you compare school fees you will understand why the venues cant be compared. Point is – we give our best seating to visiting spectators regardless if it is as good as Kearsney or not. Little old ladies being moved from the stands to allow hulking school boys to sit just does not seem the gentlemanly thing to do !

    ReplyReply
  31. @Scrum Doctor: I was told that this was a condition of the donor, that the stand be used by the KC boys. If true, the school couldn’t really take the money and ignore the condition under which it was given.

    If I had a choice at Westville, I would take the wooden benches over the concrete / grass stand any day but that is just personal pref.

    What really bugs me about Kearsney is how they allow people to spread long blankets and place cushions to book seats and then disappear for hours at a time, only to arrive back for the main game. It’s one thing to occupy a seat for an extended period, go for a break, then return and claim it again, but really the school should promote a first come first serve approach under all other circumstances, especially seeing how its regarded as the prime viewing area.

    ReplyReply
  32. @Scrum Doctor: I think your complaints are actually quite common about Kearsney. Perhaps better signage or an usher is the way to go because it does tend to create a negative opinion of the boys and their common courtesy, which is a little unfair.

  40. @Grasshopper: We first have to get past this year – next year will be another story BUT it is not about having a unbeaten season (that only happens once in a decade – unless you are in GCB) – some will argue it is a curse for a schoolboy to go through a season unbeaten – ask the principal of I think it was Wynberg (wrote a great article on this) – it is all about playing good and expansive running rugby with a clear game plan.

    ReplyReply
  41. @Ooploop: On Thursday seating won’t be any issue. Saturday and Monday might be full so best to come early IF you want to sit in the main stand. There are wooden stands on the other side of the field, so usually enough seating.

    The complaints above which are not new are often directed at the schoolboys at inter-schools games because they take up half the undercover main stand. The point is the boys don’t make the decision and the school has to respect the wishes of the contributor.

    But for KERF, the school will not be on holiday and so spectators can sit anywhere on the main stand. IOW no part of the stand will be reserved for Kearsney boys only.

    Also the stand has been extended so it is a little bigger.

  46. @Beet: I agree with your comments on the irritation of people booking seats by placing blankets and cushions along the stands. If you want those seats, then you must be prepared to sit there all day

    ReplyReply
  47. @Scrum Doctor: the game against westville recently there were big signs on the stands saying reserved. people chose to sit there anyway. i agree placing long blankets is wrong when the people only come for the main game. I was there and even after the move there was some spaces, what must also be remembered is that this was an open weekend at the school with some 228 new kids there so i am sure there were some potential new parents who stayed to watch the rugby so probably a bigger crowd that what was expected. must say the new stand is awesome and will be well used in the seasons to come.probably one of the nicest places to watch school boy rugby

  57. @kcob: It is your school and yes you are free to do as you wish. But most people would see it being disrespectful to the opposition to make them sit looking into the blazing sun whilst your own are sitting comfortably in the shade of the main stand.
    Why not reserve the whole stand for both schools pupils and let the parents and other supporters bake in the sun?

    ReplyReply
  58. @Buffel: @Westers: um; see it how you want. Most of the Kearsney parents sit in the sun around the field. Yes; the parents who pay the fees and they more than happy too have it this way. So why would they have it as you suggest. Anyway it’s the way it is and old boys before will not permit this to be any other way. The old boys have a strong representation with an amazing Head and Staff; who honour the good traditions before them. Your comments are noted though.

  59. I have seen it look a bit awkward at College as well, when visitors take seats on the boys “stand” – the stepped area on the South Western side of Goldstones. When the boys arrive they sort of get “relocated” by sheer weight of numbers. Would hate to think they feel the boys are bad mannered, but the East open stand and the Kent Pavillion (east side – west is for VIPs) are for parents and visitors.

    Perhaps the war-cry leaders should be tasked with explaining what’s up – perhaps they already are, it never occurred to me.

  60. At Glenwood it’s pretty clear, the school is seated on the temporary stands, the visiting school on the concrete stands under the main school building and parents/spectators fill the rest of the stands. The boys are in the sun, the way it should be out of respect for their elders and visitors.

    ReplyReply
  61. @Gungets Tuft: good idea. At Kearsney,it is the visiting boys that sit on the open side of the field with the Medway stand available to visitors , KC boys and local supporters. I find it more festive to sit in the sun behind the poles and shout from there. That space has grown from a few chairs to full blown Gazebos ,braais and in some cases ,fine crystal . Space there has become prime and you need to set up
    on the Friday to get a good vantage point.

    ReplyReply
  62. @Grasshopper: good call- rather be in the open stands or there abouts. far better viewing from there and very chilly in the concrete area.

    ReplyReply
  63. @Gungets Tuft: Also never thought about it, but lets face it, that area is by no means a prime spot – so shouldn’t take too much persuading. Someone else here said it may be a good idea to put up signage – In that case we need to include a : “Beware flying Bashers”sign there. In fairness though, most people are aware of basher ridge, but I guess at big games maybe use some of the red/white chevron tape to demarcate the area – as I said, no big offence because the nice seats (not facing the sun) are on the stands on the other side of the field.

  64. @Grasshopper: No at Glenwood, the visiting school now sits on the wooden stands as well.

    Glenwood has moved and sits closest to the McDonald Road end while the visitors sit by the hockey astro end.

    These are the best seats as far as I’m concerned. The concrete may be undercover but it comes with huge obstacles in the form of those annoying support pillars

  68. KC have a fantastic set up and the boys should always stay on the Grandstand, it adds to the atmosphere. Since my school days at Pretoria Boys High, we always sat on the green stands opposite the main stand and we never had a problem at all.

    KC has a Kings Park vibe to it now, like Buffel said, standing behind the posts is awesome, chances are, you will be called to a gazebo for a good drink or two – look for Mr Schramm, he will keep you entertained and well hydrated :mrgreen:
