RUGBY: Fixtures and Scores for this weekend

Schools are back in full swing and most of the top rugby teams will be in action this weekend although for many players it has not been much of a break with most involved in Academy and Craven Weeks.


Looking at the pick of the matches on display this weekend we look with interest at how much of a toll the Craven Week matches have played at the battle for the top starts to get into top gear.

Affies make the trip down to KwaZulu-Natal and will be hosted by Maritzburg College who will be looking to get some revenge after being hammered by the Pretoria boys earlier this season.

Glenwood get their season back on track with a match against the USA U18 team and they will want to finely tune the Green Machine as they anticipate their final matches of the season which will be huge.

Looking to keep their unbeaten run intact, Grey College will lock horns with Pretoria Boy’s High and we don’t see the Free Staters having too much problems against a side which has fired hot and cold this year. However the majority of the Grey players were involved in the Craven Week and fatigue could be factor in this one.

Grey High School are up against Daniel Pienaar and we don’t see this match being very close as Grey High have produced some good form this year and are good value for their top 25 spot.

Boishaai have a potential banana skin to negotiate this weekend when they come up against Oakdale who have played with some promise this year. Boishaai players have also been well used in the Academy and Craven Week sides and it will be interesting to see how the added matches have affected their players.

Paarl Gym has struggled this year to properly fire and they have lost against sides they normally would have beaten in seasons past. This weekend it is the turn of Outeniqua to get a win over Gimmies and this could be the match of the weekend as the two top 30 teams battle it out.

St. Andrews College have had a torrid season after promising so much last year and it is a pity that they have struggled to stay amongst the top teams this year. Yet an opportunity to regain some lost pride comes around for them this weekend as they take on Marlow who will be no pushovers.
