I was asked before the game between Boland Landbou and Paarl Gim not to write anything that may sound like support for the Boland Landbou team and not even suggest a possible win. After the phone call, I thought to myself, is this guy serious who would, in any case, do a stupid thing like that. And maybe just that was the downfall of the Gim side, not valuing Boland's threat to highly and boy did the pay the price. In
In Oloff Berg Boland must surely have one of the best coaches available in schoolboy rugby. It was clear from the start that Boland knew exactly what game plan to follow in the horrible weather conditions and this time the boys playing followed the plan to perfection. All this combined resulted in a big upset with Boland outsmarting Paarl Gim winning (24-15).
Stellenberg is at this stage not begging to be promoted to a Premier A school but is literally breaking the door down. Following their close loss (34-35) against Boland Landbou up with an overwhelming victory against Wynberg (47-5) everybody not involved must be asking what must Stellenberg still do?
The for a big surprise to some came the draw between SACS and Rondebosch (14-14). As they did against Bishops a few weeks ago The South African College High School (SACS) scored at the death to draw with another of their traditional Southern Suburbs rivals, Rondebosch Boys’ High School. Rondebosch led 7-nil at halftime and 14-7 after sixty-nine minutes. SACS captain Lucky Dlepu scoring in the last play.
Boishaai was as expected too strong for Boishaai and lost (0-25) and Paul Roos beating Oakdale (27-10) after they also had the thinking flyhalf using the boot to good effect in the wet weather.
