Another spectacular day of school boy rugby with some brilliant matches throughout the day. We had low hanging grey clouds for most of the afternoon and the rain finally came down at the start of the match with Paul Roos vs Jeppe – but he boys played on!

Day 2 Match Highlights

The day started off with the battle of the Saints as St Benedict’s won a hard fought battle against St Charles by 24 points to 14. In the second game of the day the invitation team, the Lions President’s 15, drew the Italian visiting club Viadana and after the lead had changed hands four times, a Jacopo Abram try broke the deadlock giving the Italians the win.

only three points separated Nelspruit Hoerskool and Pretoria’s Garsfontein after the first 30 minutes

In game three, only three points separated Nelspruit Hoerskool and Pretoria’s Garsfontein after the first 30 minutes but 2 tries from winger Eduan Engelbrecht gave the lads from Mpumalanga a popular 28 to 16 win. The luckless hosts St John’s College provided game competition in the first half for Pietermaritzburg’s Hilton College, but a hat-trick of tries by wing Darren McGhee brought Hilton a well-deserved 5 to 27 win.

Monument gave the fancied Paarl Boys high a real run for their money

Krugersdorp Monument gave the fancied Paarl Boys high a real run for their money after being 25 to 3 down at half time and scored 17 unanswered points, but it was a bridge too far as the men from Boland held on by 25 points to 20.
