Rugby Results 8th May, 2010

There were some huge matches this past weekend which saw some the countries big teams facing each other in what was mostly a great display of rugby. Highlight of the week would see Grey College extend their unbeaten run when they turned over a tough Paarl Boys side 34-12. There was also a battle of the boot in Durban where Glenwood hung on to a 9-6 win against Westville in a nail biter.  Here are some of the results from around the country.

Inevitably, it's one of the first five questions posed at any introduction. Whether at a varsity, in the workplace or at a braai: "What school did you go to?" In the sub-culture of the athletically-inclined South African male, the response will be met with a concoction of envy and judgment with a resumption of the rivalry that once burned inside these men as schoolboys.

Glenwood and Maritzburg College has habitually always been a closely challenged match, and today proved no different. It was a massively physical encounter and both teams displaying a solid resistance and good defense.

A glance at the following fixtures is enough to make any rugby fan ditch the couch and head out to their local school field.

Warren Seals Kearsney Captain!

These are hallowed halls, political leaders were shaped here. These are enviable classrooms, market leaders were nurtured here. This is Stott field, Springboks and Sharks were born here. Kearsney College has unassumingly provided South Africa with leaders in all facets of society. From (former DA leader) Tony Leon to (JSE non-Executive Director) Andile Mazwai; Andrew Hudson to Trevor Halstead. They've even extended their influence to the British Isles (think Matt Stevens and inevitable England international, Brad Barritt). In Warren Seals, they have unearthed another leader with the potential to comfortably fall in the abovementioned bracket.

They don't come much bigger than this in the Eastern Cape, Dale College against Queens College in a match that is sure to bring out the best in the two rivals. Queens have had the better of the encounters in recent years having not lost since 2004 and with home ground advantage on Saturday they are going to be a tough team to crack.

Chad le Clos Shines on Day 1

Ace swimmer Chad le Clos of Westville Boys was on top form at the SA Senior National Champs and 2010 Commonwealth Games Trials. Looking to stamp his dominance in the pool this year Chad was the pick of the competitors and should be a shoe in for the Games.

Having come off two very good wins against Kearsney and Northwood, and an extensive pre-season program, the Westville boys were well prepared for the rigours of a tough tournament that would see them play 3 games in just 5 days.
