Great Schoolboy Rugby Games This Weekend

 

With two more weeks of schoolboy rugby on the cards, many schools will play their last fixtures today. However, we are spoilt with some great fixtures as the boys are looking to end their "season" on a high.

Maritzburg College vs Glenwood (Premier Interschools - 12h55 on Supersport 211)

A 100-year-old rivalry continues when Maritzburg College hosts Glenwood High School at Goldstones on Saturday 11 September.

The first match between the two schools was played in 1921, at Glenwood, which the hosts won, 5-0. In the Maritzburg College Reunion encounter in June 2010 Maritzburg College beat Glenwood on Goldstones, the first time since 2006 that College managed to beat Glenwood here.

The biggest victory for College over Glenwood was 61-13 at College in 1995, while the biggest victory for Glenwood over College was 57-12 at Kings Park in 2015. College had the best in the earlier years of this encounter and still have the most wins overall. Glenwood was on a 16-match unbeaten streak against College, but for the first time since their 35-16 win back in June 2010, College managed to outplay Glenwood 20-12. This period also included two back-to-back draws in 2012.

EJ Jansen vs Monnas (DigiTV)

A very physical match is expected with the grade 12's of 2021 that will play in the last fixture of their schoolboy rugby career.

EG Jansen lost in the final seconds of their match against Garsfontein two weeks ago (24-26), while Monnas would hope to continue their winning ways in their centenary year.

Rondebosch vs SACS (11:45 https://youtu.be/k7TmdzzRN6c)

Rondebosch was the winner when the two schools met two weeks ago (26-19).
