Every year the iconic Newland Rugby Stadium plays host to the much anticipated Western Province Schools Rugby Day. The W.P. Rugby Union provides all the top rugby playing schools an opportunity to get a feel for the upcoming season, help shake off some of the pre-season rust and give some their first taste of First XV rugby.

Our exposure to cartoons, comic book heroes and animated television series has made us accustomed to expecting the bad guy to be lurking around in the darkness, waiting for the perfect opportunity to pounce. However, if you happen to find yourself in the vicinity of a golf course, putting green or a driving range anywhere in or around Cape Town, it would more than likely be Rondebosch Boys High School, 15-year-old golfing sensation Luca Filippi that you encounter. Sunset has been the signal for the rising young star to start his last half an hour of training, praying for just a little bit more light!

The top five all recorded wins over the weekend which ensured that their positions didn’t change and it is a pity that the much anticipated Kearsney v Maritzburg College had to be cancelled due to a flu epidemic.

Please note that two outstanding results for Pretoria Boy’s High have been included which had a small bearing on this week’s rankings. This weekend there is the big “Battle of the Jukskei” when Pretoria Boy’s meet St. John’s College which will give both teams a chance to move up the table.

Cricket: Match Report 'Bosch beat Bishops

 

Rondebosch welcomed traditional rivals Bishops to Cricket A on Saturday. Persistent rain on Friday meant the wicket had a little moisture in it and a greenish tinge to the grass, which persuaded Bishops to insert the hosts upon winning the toss.

Cricket: Match Report Bosch & Affies

Bosch V Affies

 North net South on Saturday as Rondebosch hosted the very successful Affies 1st XI on their traditional end of season tour of Cape Town.

Bosch had no hesitation in batting first on a decent looking wicket and openers Matthew Christensen and Riaz Sader proceeded to make full use of the conditions. The pair took full control of the match as they rotated strike beautifully with an energetic display of running between wickets. Affies were never allowed to build any pressure as the strike was rotated almost at will and bad deliveries were hit to the boundary. This allowed the partnership to maintain a consistent tempo (the 50 partnership came up in the 14th over, the 100 in the 27th and the 150 in the 42nd). Riaz was eventually the 1st to go, well caught in the deep for 83 ending the impressive 157 run opening stand.

Matthew departed soon after the lunch break for 88 and it was left to Hayes van der Berg and Zubayr Hamza to administer the final rights to the Affies attack. Hayes ended on 52 not out and Zubayr 25 not out to enable Bosch to declare on 252 for 2 after 67 overs.

Affies had 63 overs left in the day to chase down the score, and despite a run out, were well-placed to launch an attack at 58 for 1 with 40 overs still remaining in the day. A double strike by Riaz Sader in which he dismissed the two dangerous left handers, Leus du Plloy and Drian Bruwer, effectively ended Affies’ hopes of a victory and the batsmen went into survival mode.

Despite the best efforts of the bowlers, a victory for the hosts was not to be, as the visitors proved resilient on a wicket that was offering less and less assistance. All the bowlers bowled good spells but eventually Affies ended the day on 143 for 6 after 63 overs

Cricket: Rondebosch Beat PRG to take title!

The Vineyard Oval was the scene for the franchise final for the Cobras region where Rondebosch and Paul Roos met to determine who would go through to the National finals in Stellenbosch.

RBRondebosch won the toss and elected to bat on a surface that looked full of runs, but were soon in trouble at 15 for 2 in the 4th over with Matthew Christensen and Hayes van der Berg back in the pavilion. Zubayr Hamza joined Murray Commins at the crease and the pair took the attack to the Paul Roos bowlers in a partnership of 57 off 36 balls. Commins departed for 30 off just 17 balls and fellow Grade 10 learner, Dayyaan Galiem took over where Murray left off. Hamza and Galiem took the total to 114 with 5 overs still remaining and it looked as if Bosch was going to post a formidable score.

The introduction of Botha into the attack changed the game as he and Schoeman ran through the middle order as Bosch lost 4 wickets for just 7 runs in the next 3 overs, including Galiem (27 off 19) and Zubayr Hamza (46 off 41). 25 runs off the last two overs of the innings proved crucial as Riaz Sader picked some gaps in the field in a gem of an innings scoring 21 off just 11 balls to give Rondebosch a final total of 146 for 8.

Paul Roos attacked hard from the start in the powerplay with Johan Siebritz and Arnold Scholtz using the aerial route to good effect. At the end of the first 6 overs Paul Roos were 42 for 1 with Siebritz back in the pavilion and the exciting Niel Botha at the crease. The relaxation of the fielding restrictions allowed the Bosch bowlers to get back into the game and at the halfway mark the score stood at 57 for 2 with Scholtz having been dismissed for 28. Botha and Sean de Necker accelerated the innings nicely and with 21 runs coming off the 13th and 14th over, Paul Roos were nicely placed at 94 for 2 after 14 – needing a further 53 runs off the last 6 overs.

Wickets began to fall around Niel Botha as first De Necker holed out on the boundary and some aggressive running resulted in run outs but while Botha was at the crease Paul Roos were still in the hunt. The last ball of the penultimate over saw Botha push hard to get two, but crucially meant that he was not on strike for the last over with Paul Roos needing 14 to win.

Dayyaan Galiem stepped up to bowl the final over and bowled Theron with his first delivery and then bowled a dot ball to the new batsman to leave Paul Roos still needing 14 runs of 4 balls. A scrambled single brought Botha back on strike and he perished in the cause as Galiem bowled him, effectively ending the game. Botha scored 74 off just 54 balls and with his 3 wickets, would have been a worthy Man-of-the Match recipient.

Bosch eventually won by 10 runs in a match that was a good advert for schoolboy cricket.
