Only One Team Left Standing in KZN



This was always going to be a tough game with Westville having a great season and doing well against some of the other top rugby schools in KZN. The kick-off time had been moved to 11:30am on Saturday morning the 20th of June to accommodate the British Lions first test Match against South Africa in Durban. The whole province had been looking forward to the tough encounter and there was a lot of banter between old boys of the two schools in the lead up to Saturday's match.

    There can only be a few words to describe the Glenwood boys as they took on the 20 best school rugby teams in the world. Awesome, Courageous, determined, passGlenwoodionate, committed and again Awesome. We were pretty devastated after the semis loss and the boys wanted to make sure that we take something back home for everyone to be proud of. De La Salle College are the NZ champions and are a great team, you only need to look at the scores throughout the tournament to know that. The y have a massive pack that is mobile and are complimented by fast quick footed backs that like to attack the line.

Tall and athletic and with a determination to make his mark on the sport, Clifton College’s Kushen Kishen is a cricketer which seems to have all the attributes to see him rubbing shoulders  with some of the top names in the world of cricket in the near future. Seeing himself as a genuine all-rounder Kushen is arguably one of the fastest schoolboy bowlers in the country and, as his name suggests the batters will need some padding to cushion his deliveries.

A dream comes true for KZN High Schools’ Soccer


After a number of years of building high school soccer throughout KZN, a sport only introduced in recent years into schools where rugby, cricket and hockey have been the major sports, three teams toured to Gauteng at the start of the holidays and proved just how strong schools’ soccer in our Province is becoming.

KES Almost Awoken From Their Dream



The KES dream season almost came crumbling down before them when they faced Marais Viljoen this past weekend. In what was billed, and what I predicted, as a forgone conclusion as an easy win for KES, they had to dig deep in order to eventually pip Marais Viljoen 29-27. KES ran in 22 unanswered points in the second half to record their closest win of the season and to remain on course for that first unbeaten run in 31 years. KES retained their unofficial ranking of 3rd in the country but their result against a team way below them in the schools rankings has definitely created a nervous atmosphere amongst the Reds supporters in their bid to remain unbeaten.
