S.O.S- Save Our Suburbs!



The startling reality of the widening gap between Cape Town's "Big Four" and other elite rugby schools. There is a harsh reality facing our beloved schools here in the Southern Suburbs. Yes I am talking about rugby at SACS, Wynberg, Bishops and Rondebosch. The gap between these schools on the rugby field is widening year by year, in some schools at 1st XV level as well, but in all four the problem is across the board.

Gimmies have tried gamely in the past few seasons to get back to winning ways but have had to play second fiddle to Boishaai and that trend looked like continuing this year although Gimmies found themselves ranked three places higher than their rivals this time.

Played at a break neck pace Paul Roos and Boishaai locked horns in what turned out to be a great spectacle of school rugby. Paarl Boys who had managed to sweep all and sundry aside this season besides the formidable Grey College were the favourites going into the match but Paul Roos exploded into life in what turned out to be their most impressive performance to date.

Grey's "Tiny" Number 8- Neill Jordaan!

IMG_0452_-_CopyNicknames and other forms of names hung upon a person by others can be a strange thing. They can be random names, or they can be shortened forms of full names, or they can suggest something about the person, like the Hulk. And then there's the case where the nickname deliberately does not describe the person. For example take the 18 year old Free Stater who goes by the name "Tiny", he stands 1.9 metres tall in his socks and weighs in at a hefty 104 kilograms of rock hard muscle, runs like a sprinter and is virtually unstoppable. Clad in the Grey College Eighth Man jersey Neill "Tiny" Jordaan is a player who will without doubt be spoken about for many seasons to come and there is the mouth watering prospect of the young Jordaan seriously challenging Pierre Spies in the years ahead for the Green & Gold!

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.

Walking around Paarl Boys' High on a crisp Autumn morning is like heaven for a rugby lover. I still hold many a fond Copy_of_1110419_Maryke_mmemory of this grand old school from my playing days when we would trek out to Paarl to pit ourselves against some of the best of the Boland.

Ryan Lok Fundraiser


In June 2009, while many were enjoying a fantastic Cape Schools Rugby Week, a freak accident changed the life of a young man forever. In a match between Wynberg Boys' High and Grey High School, Wynberg No. 8 and hard man Ryan Lok peeled away from a Grey scrum...

In our latest foray into the massive weekend clash between Cape giants Diocesan College (Bishops) and Rondebosch Boys' High, we head across Sandown Road to the hallowed halls of "Bosch" where we caught up with skipper Chad Matthews to discuss the impending conclusion of a topsy-turvy season.


The long and arduous school's rugby season here in the Cape is slowly drawing to a close with the traditional matches between Wynberg and SACS and Bishops and Rondebosch dishing up a fitting finale to what has been a long, hard slog for these young men. While SACS face a nigh near impossible task at Lovers' Walk against the giants of the Cape, over at Campground Road things couldn't be closer.

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.

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.
