Some Big Matches on the 21st April- Predictions and Results

Some major rugby on the fields of South Africa's schools this coming Easter weekend as all the major festivals kick off. Here are our selection of some explosive matches we can look forward to:

21st April:

KES Festival Prediction (Just for fun)


11:15 - King Edward VII vs Durban High School  :  DHS have recorded two good wins in their last matches after a dodgy start and this should be a good match for them to win. KES however are looking strong with only one loss so far and should be too good for School on the day. KES by 12

RESULT:  DHS still struggle to find their feet against top opposition and were downed by a good KES side. Final score  KES 39 DHS 6

13:45 - Westville Boys' High vs St Andrew's College :  This should be a real crowd pleaser and there is not much to choose between the two teams. St. Andrew's have struggled to get going and will need to be on top form to beat the KZN team who will be looking to burst into the top 10 by the end of Easter.  Westville to win a close one by less than 10

RESULT: Final score in the St. Andrews v Westville rugby match:  St. Andrews  just too good at the end winning  13-12

15:00 - Diocesan College vs St Benedict's College: Bishops are enjoying a purple patch and have taken care of some quality opposition already this season. We can't see St. Bennies being too much of a threat and predict Bishops taking this one by 15 or more.

RESULT: Bishops took good for St. Bennies on the day winning : 43-3


16:15 - Grey Boys' High School vs Eldoraigne : Grey High are on the verge of joining the top 20 but need to string some wins together and the match against Eldoraigne could be a perfect start for them. Grey PE to take this one at a canter.

RESULT: As predicted Grey Boys High had too much fire power and ended up comfortable winners 38-5

Kearsney College Festival

08.30 Selborne College vs Helpmekaar : Selborne are riding high at present on the top of the pile and have beaten three very strong teams already and we can't see Helpmekaar doing what Queens and others have failed to do thus far. Selborne to start the festival with a big win by 15 or more.

RESULT: Selborne won but it was not an easy win as Helpmekaar pushed the top team all the way. At the end it was just one penalty kick that seperated the teams and Selborne hung onto their unbeaten run with a 3-0 victory.

09.45 Dale College vs Marais Viljoen : What a tough one to call! Dale College have not lost a match yet this season but have played one less than Marais Viljoen who have just lost a single match. A win by either team should see them firmly established in the top 10 but neither team has the advantage. We will go with a Marais Viljoen win by a fraction.

RESULT:Eastern Cape Schools flying the flag high at Kearsney today. Dale College looked very impressive and ran out 22-16 winners.

11.00 Kearsney College vs Nico Malan: Look out Nico Malan ! You are about to run into the du Preez brothers! Kearsney are unbeaten from seven matches in what is turning out to be their best start to a season by them in decades. Former Springbok Robert du Preez has contributed to their success by lending the team 3 of his sons and we can't see Nico Malan doing much damage to the hosts! Kearsney by 10 or more.

RESULT: Motivated by a home crowd Kearsney took command of the match from the start and ran home victors 42-12

13.15 Glenwood vs Christ's College, New Zealand: Not the greatest start to the season by Glenwood but they will be looking at the New Zealanders and believing they can win. MB College and DHS have both already beaten Christ College and there should be no reason why the Green Machine don't do the same. Glenwood by 15.

RESULT:  The Green Machine of Glenwood was too fast, too strong and too motivated against the New Zealanders who are having a poor tour. Final score: Glenwood 20 Christ College 0

14.30 EG Jansen vs Paarl Gym: A cracker! Both teams are traditionally in the top 10 but they are nowhere to be seen so far after a poor start to the season. EG Jansen started the season well but have slipped in their last outings and will have to find their feet quickly.  Paarl Gim are the sleeping giants and their slump won't last for long. Gimmies to fight hard for a close victory.

RESULT:  Paarl Gim playing some vintage rugga took care of business against EG Jansen winning 38-3

15.45 Monument vs Grey College: A massive match which sees a top of the table clash between two of the country's biggest names. Both team are unbeaten but is anyone really going to bet against Grey College? Perhaps only the Monnas faithful but we will stick with the form book and go with a convincing win by Grey by more than 10.

RESULT: In a match that resembled to heavyweights slugging it out Grey College got their first fright of the season with a hard fought 18-14 win against a desperately unlucky Monnas side.

St. Johns Festival

09:45 - Florida vs Lions:

RESULT: HOERSKOOL FLORIDA gave the Golden Lions Invitation team a lesson winning : 19-10

11:00 - Nelspruit HS vs St John's College: Neither team showing any great form at the moment but with home ground advantage St. John's will want to hit their straps early considering they lost all three of their matches last year. We will go with a good win for SJC by 10.

RESULT: Not a good start to the festival for the hosts and they were totally outplayed. Final score:  Hoerskool Nelspruit 38 and St. John's College 3

12:15 - Affies vs St John's College (Harare): Don't completely write off the Zimbabweans in this one, last year they caused and upset by beating St.John's JHB and on their day can be competitive. However Affies are a formidable team who should have too much in the tank for the gallant Zimbos. Affies to win by 15 or more.

RESULT: Affies ran riot in a one sided match which left the Zimbabweans stuggling to stay in the match. Affies 88 St. John's Harare 0

13:30 - Parktown Boys' High vs Paul Roos Gimnasium: Cannot really seen Parktown causing the Cape side too many sleepless nights. PRG are well placed in fifth spot and are still unbeaten this year. Expect a big score and a PRG win.

RESULT: Paul Roos Gym running riot against Parktown Boys whitewashing them 43-0

14:45 - Daniel Pienaar vs FNB Invitation

RESULT: One would have expected Dan Pienaar to take care of business against an invitational team but it wasn't to be. Winning by one point the FNB Invitation side took the spoils 17-16

16:00 - Millfield School vs Paarl Boys': Millfield are an unknown quantity and it is always good to see how the local schools do against international opposition. Boishaai are unbeaten and should give the England team a lesson. Looking for a Paarl Boys win by plenty.

RESULT: Final Match of the day and Boishaai had to work for their win against the England team. Finally winning 23-12
