On Saturday 21st May 2016 the mighty Grey College from Bloemfontein take on Paarl Boys’ High in Paarl in what is expected to be the highlight of the schoolboy rugby season.

The two schools are rated as the two top sides in the country at the moment and this match is anticipated as the true clash of the titans! Grey College will be eager to re-establish themselves as the top dog in school’s rugby after their previous season when they were plagued by injuries. They currently have injury problems but the replacement players stepped up well and in doesn’t look like the team is any weaker because of it. Paarl Boys on the other hand has set the benchmark since 2015 and has been unbeaten in 30 straight games.

The two teams play a totally different style of rugby. Grey College likes to play at a high pace and thrive on turnover ball and counter attacks. While the Paarl team is more renowned for their solid defence and structured play where they wear a team down and then attack wide with their speedy backs.Grey has been wiping away all and sundry that came before them this season. They put 50 points past a very good Affies team while Boys High only managed to beat the Pretoria team by 4 points. This however is no indication of the relative strengths of these teams as they will have to play a different game against each other as the one they played against Affies.

The Grey team will also not forget that Paarl Boys’ High came to their home turf in Bloemfontein and walked away with a win last year. They will want to return the favour and beat the boys in blue on their own Brugstreet Field.

Rugby at Grey College

Grey has served Bloemfontein, the Free State, South Africa and the rest of the world well, over the past 150 years. Grey has been able to make adjustments and remain relevant in a changing environment in which it has developed, grown and excelled. The brand is known and revered throughout South Africa and even internationally and the products of the school make a positive difference wherever they are. Parallel medium education, tolerance, respect for others and loyalty to the school are not only traditions, but firm foundations in a global village. Grey is structured on these foundations and it is constantly adapting to new developments. The wave of change washing over our country confirms the value of Grey’s traditions.

Rugby at Paarl Boys’ High School

Rugby is an integral part of the Paarl Boys’ way of life. It is important to win, but that should not be the primary objective. A sportsman may never be abused to ensure the success of a team. The primary objective at Paarl Boys’ High must be one of enjoyment, for both player and coach. Whereas they agree with the legendary Vince Lombardi when he said: ‘’Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing’’ they hold winning to be more than just points on the board. Winning relates to the values, commitment and the pursuit of the best of one’s abilities.

PBHS has produced 20 players that have represented South Africa since 1906. They have provided some of the legends and most famous Springbok rugby players ever to have played in the Green and Gold. Players like Oom “Boy” and Fanie Louw, Piet “Spiere” du Toit, Mannetjies Roux, Ryk van Schoor, Carel Du Plessis and Corné Krige.
