For anybody with an interest in SA schools rugby, that is a pretty strong line-up. I'm guessing those NZ schools are no slouches either...

I'm glad to say that 'I was there'.

An amazing effort by the Hartpury lads against a very big and physical Affies. Hartpury knew that they had to match that physicality and then use width in attack. It worked - just - as Hartpury were holding on (and defending superbly) in the last couple of minutes before an interception led to a length of the field try to settle things.

I think that Pury certainly earnt the respect of the SA crowd, who were probably expecting Affies to roll them over.

Tomorrow will be a different proposition, as Grey showed in their first game that they know how to run the ball themselves. Could be a cracker.

A lot of these boys (not all, by any means) are Gloucester Academy players, so the future is looking good...

Affies were ranked 10th in SA last year but could the beat any school on the day. Grey College will be a different proposition, consistently ranked in the top 3 rugby schools in SA and the school that have produced the second most Springboks over the years
