Rugby Preview: Maritzburg College v Westville

Maritzburg College v Westville: If ever there was going to be clash of the titans this weekend in KZN it has got to be the big showdown that will take place on Goldstones at 15h40 on Saturday.

College_v_WestvilleThis season has seen both sides threatening to have a great season but they have been let down by some close results that went the way of the opposition.

Last weekend College, who on paper at least, were the favourites to win when they took on Kearsney suffered what has to go down as a big loss to a team they have regularly dominated. Not to take anything away from Kearsney who have one of their best sides for decades however for the Black, White and Red who are notorious for having a strong defence, they will be disappointed that they let in Kearsney for a brace of tries.

Westville though will be confident going up to Pietermartizburg and they will be mindful that they beat Kearsney earlier this season in a tight finish and possible have a slight edge on the Maritzburg players man for man. They have been involved in some very close loses which could have gone either way and are enjoying a very strong season so far. Tyler Fisher is a great playmaker for Westville and his skill has allowed Westville to play some very attacking rugby.

It could be another grandstand finish from two of KZN rugby powerhouses but with a capacity crowd baying for College to win expected at Goldstones, Westville are going to have to produce something special to come away with the victory.
