Schoolboy Rugby – Preview Eastern Cape – Excitement And Passion Guaranteed


The most unpredictable region in South Africa should serve its normal amount of surprises over the weekend.

Brandwag will be looking for an "easy" outing this weekend after they stumbled to a 00-66 loss against Outeniqua in George a week ago while St Andrew's should also not "struggle" to travel home with a win over Cambridge.

Dale College hosts Selborne in their 161st Old Dalian Reunion day, unfortunately for the host, they are not having their best of seasons after losing seven from their nine matches up to now. Selborne should win this with ease.

Marlow will welcome Framesby to Cradock wanting to extend their five-match winning streak. Framesby on the other has tested itself against some of the top schools in South Africa this season. That exposure should help them to outplay their host after a physical and emotional onslaught from Marlow.

The results when Muir vs Pearson and Queen's College vs Hudson Park clash is not guaranteed and will like always provide excitement up to the last minute.
