One look at the Free State Craven Week side for 2010 and you immediately see the dominance of Grey College in the province. In 2009 Grey had 15 out of the 22 selected and this year they have packed the Craven Week side with 18 players!

Boland Landbou plow through SACS Defense! Boland Landbou needed a win quickly to avoid dropping out the Top 20 and the 33-16 against SACS might just have saved them. It was not exactly a pretty match as there were plenty of mistakes to make the ref busy and whistle was blown regularly.

What a game! Northwood who have struggled to pick up the pieces after enduring a nightmare season in 2008 have finally fulfilled a dream that has take them over 50 years to attain, beating the traditional super power in KZN Michaelhouse!

Gutsy DHS Beaten By Glenwood!

DHS played with great determination in the second half and actually managed to outscore their neighbours Glenwood but the damage was done in the first half and it was too great a mountain for the 'Horseflies' to climb.

A quick look at the teams that KZN will be sending to this year's Craven and academy weeks and you realise just who is the powerhouse of KZN rugby. Glenwood players dominate the two teams with 13 players from Glenwood selected for the Craven Week and Academy A sides.

Glenwood V DHS, 2010


It is the Glenwood Old Boys Day and they take on their Berea neighbours in what will be as usual a match filled with passion. DHS have not fired on all cylinders and it is a sad sight to see this proud school struggling to keep up with the leaders of schoolboy rugby. Yet they have a side filled with Grade 11’s and we can fully expect a strong side next season from the Horseflies.

Most of the top teams are in action once again this weekend although many of the players will be hoping they can come through the remaining skirmishes unscathed before Craven Week kicks off at the end of June. A rejuvenated Maritzburg College have the potential to leap into the top 10 should the account for Affies who have lost their last two matches. However the standout match must be the Eastern Cape derby where Grey PE will look to end the great season that St. Andrews are enjoying...

WBHS v College Rugby Report

Last year Westville turned the tables on College by beating the home team 3-0 on their Founders Day, only the second time in College's proud rugby history that this had happened, and it was Westville's turn this weekend to host the Maritzburg team on their very own "Old Boys" day.

We are moving into the business end of the season and the majority of the top teams are enjoying good success as the team get fitter and the hours of training is finally paying off. There were all the usual suspects winning this weekend but a few matches stand out: Westville v Maritzburg College, Monument v Affies, Bishops v Wynberg, Gimmies v SACS and Boishaai v Landou.
