Kearsney College Easter Festival Fixtures

Kearsney College, at leafy Botha's Hill, will again play host to an Easter Festival of top schoolboy sides. It is the third year of the Festival.

The schools staking part this year are: Selborne College (East London), Helpmekaar (Johannesburg), Dale College (King William's Town), Marais Viljoen (Alberton), Nico Malan (Humansdorp), EG Jansen (Boksburg), Glenwood High School (Durban), Paarl Gym, Monument (Krugersdorp), Grey College (Bloemfontein) and hosts Kearsney. In addition there is a top school from New Zealand - Christ's College of Christchurch.

Only Nico Malan has not at some stage been on the FNB Top 20.

Naturally such a festival is attractive to talent scouts. This year three bursaries will be awarded to the most outstanding forward, back and player of the festival, each valued at R60,000. They cover tuition fees at Varsity College and a contract with the Sharks Academy from next year. The winners will be eligible to have their bursaries renewed for the duration of their studies, based on their academic and sporting performances.

A new aspect of this year's Festival is the introduction of a Primary Schools' competition, which will be run in conjunction with the main Festival games.

On Holy Saturday the teams will go to King's Park for the Super Rugby match between the Sharks and the Hurricanes.
