Affies will host the 113th fixture against their Pretoria neighbours, Pretoria Boys High this Saturday. Affies unbeaten since 2009 will know not to relax a minute, as Boys High will come guns blazing. Boys High is having their worst season ever and have nothing to lose. A victory against Affies will make it a season to remember.
Affies played some magnificent rugby after the July school holidays. After victories against Maritzburg College (59-7) at Maritzburg College and a even bigger one against Glenwood (63-0) last weekend everybody is expecting another major win. The record books show the most points in a match scored was in the victory of Affies in 1996 (62-13) with the biggest difference in points was in 2015 after Affies' won 56-3.
Will we see these "records" broken on Saturday? Yes I think we will. Will it matter? Maybe for a day of two, after which the memories of years of fierce and proud battles between these two proud schools will remain.
