Frans Malherbe- Leading from the Front

 

 

Probably the least glamorous position on the rugby field is in the front row. Yet these players are some of the most important cogs in a rugby wheel. It is one of the reasons the Boks won the recent Lions' series. Dominating up front in the scrums in the first two Tests was the recipe for success, for without this domination, no matter how talented the backline they would not be able to do anything without the clean ball they receive as a result of the hard work of the tight-five.

SA Schools Rugby Captain

So Craven Week has come to an end. The SA Schools Side is now firmly penned down and despite the witherto's and the whyfor's made by many, we at SA Schools Sports have no doubt that all these boys will do our country proud.They say that football is a game watched by hooligans but played by gentlemen, while rugby is a game played by hooligans and watched by gentlemen.

Will Glenwood make Grey Green?

 

 

Touted as one of the best teams to play for Glenwood High, the 2009 season comes to a end for some of their most talented players when they take on Grey College on Saturday. To travel on train up to Bloemfontein might not be ones favorite destination but the "Berea Burgers" have one objective and that is to come home with the biggest scalp of all.

Booishai run out winners at Interschools


Paarl Gym were aiming for a record six wins in a row when they faced Booishai in the annual Interschools at Faure Stadium. Many would have tipped Gimmies to do just that as they have had a good season and appeared the stronger side going into the match.
However Paarl Boy's High had been quietly going about their preparation and were not prepared to roll over and play dead

Paarl Boys v Paarl Gim


It can't get much bigger than this! Paarl Boys V Paarl Gym. Who will win the biggest schoolboy match on the planet come Saturday? If you can't get down to Faure Street to watch the game, SA School Sports will be covering the game live with up to the minute scores and plays as they happen.
Interschools fever has hit Paarl in a big way and few die hard fans of the two schools will be missing from the massive crowd that is expected to be enthralled by some great schoolboy rugby.

 
They say that this sleepy town with a population of about 108 000 awakens with a tumultuous roar when these two giants of the schools game clash. Businesses are shut, butchers are sold out and the town is sent into complete rugby fever as the Saturday of the game approaches. We profile the two massive schools involved in this feast of rugby to see what all the fuss is about.


Browse all the annals of South African rugby history and one immediately gets the sense that schoolboy rugby, and indeed schoolboy sport, has been dominated by a select few priviliged schools. A Briton might call it the "Public School" effect. And no, in British Lions territory the word Public School has the total opposite meaning to what we conceive to be a typical Public School,

Amidst the plethora of talent on show at Cape Schools Week, one name stood head and shoulders above the rest in the loose forward department. Whilst the WPRFU did not allow any of their Craven Week selections to participate in the festival, the EPRFU was a tad more lenient allowing some of their stars to take part in a portion of the tournament.

Cape Schools Week: Day Three

 

Its with a heavy heart that I report back from the third and final day of what has been another fantastic display of schoolboy rugby. I'm sure I speak on behalf all that attended this year's Cape Schools Week in saying that it has been an unquestionable success. The standard of rugby has for the most part been so staggering that as a hardened rugby lover and purist I felt like wishing it could go on for as long as possible. But alas, all good things must come to an end, and a rather fitting end with two of the five games being intense clashes between schools of even calibre pitted against each other.
