Glenwood V DHS, 2010


It is the Glenwood Old Boys Day and they take on their Berea neighbours in what will be as usual a match filled with passion. DHS have not fired on all cylinders and it is a sad sight to see this proud school struggling to keep up with the leaders of schoolboy rugby. Yet they have a side filled with Grade 11’s and we can fully expect a strong side next season from the Horseflies.

However it is Glenwood that will go into the match as firm favourites and we expect them to walk over DHS as the powerhouse of KZN extends its dominance over them. However Glenwood have not enjoyed the most perfect of seasons having lost a few key matches that could have seen them challenging for a top 5 position had they won and the loses against St. Andrews and Boishaai in particular are ones that they will look back and believe they should have won.

Still as true champions Glenwood are now in full swing as the ‘Green Machine’ starts to churn out one victory after the next. Captain Fred Zeilinga will look to lead his boys to another win and his long raking kicks will see to it that Glenwood are always in an attacking position.

However DHS will not run onto the field believing anything else than that they can win the match and they will be up for this game like no other realising that a win against their traditional foes would be a great reward for a season of effort.

Still I would have to give the win to Glenwood and by a fairly big margin although a DHS surprise will be an incredible accomplishment.
