The visitors from Port Elizabeth will be hoping to replicate their last performance at the Makkotter Field this time round. In 2014 Grey were 26 points down but ended up winning the match.
However, it’s the home team who still dominate, but only narrowly.
Paul Roos have won five of the nine encounters played in the last nine years.
The game will be televised live on SuperSport 6 (channel 206) at 14:05
You can also catch the build-up Premier Interschools Magazine Show from Wednesday April 6 at 18:45 on SuperSport 8 featuring Stefan Dippenaar and Steven Hunt.
