Historic Overview

This Saturday, 4 August, will again dawn on another Premier Interschools match, and arguably the biggest of the lot. Paarl Boys’ High versus Paarl Gimnasium, the Galpille against the Bloedworse and South vs North. This is the time of year when the town of Paarl is divided into the two camps for a whole week. A rivalry that exists for more than 100 years culminates in the main rugby match between the two schools at the Faure Street Stadium at 4:00pm. The first match was played in 1915 when masters, schoolboys and old boys all played together. This was the format up to 1927 after which it was decided that the Interschools matches should only comprise of schoolboys. The current format, as we know today, started officially in 1929.

The Interschools was only interrupted for one year in 1928. The intensity of this derby is reflected in the average winning margin in over 100 games of only 5 points. There are no easily won Interschools games. Each point gained is precious and defence is usually rock solid. There have been 11 drawn matches and three of them ended in a 0-0 draw, the last one in 1986. This shows the commitment and pressure that can build in these games.

During the week there will be functions and re-union get together with old friends and foes reminiscing about the days gone by. The first battle on the rugby starts on the Wednesday evening as the two Old Boy teams lock horns in what can only be described as a friendly but fierce game. Thursday afternoon sees the “Goffels” and “Hommels” (G and H teams) play their own unique brand of rugby before Friday morning when it kicks into the business end of the weekend. This is the time when the two schools have their Big Brags in the school hall. Here, the Rugby and Hockey players that will represent their respective teams on the Saturday are introduced and the first teams are capped for Interschools.

All other rugby games are played on Friday afternoon. This is where the u/14A teams play each other, as well as and the “main” match of the day consisting of the u/19 3’rd teams, known among the locals as the “Chiefs” vs “Chippies”. There are only 4 rugby matches played on the Saturday at Faure Street Stadium. The games usually start around 12h00 with the u15A match, followed by the u16A, the Seccies and then the main match commencing at 16h00

Paarl Boys’ High 2018 Season:

The local unbeaten run of three seasons finally came to an end at their 150th year celebrations when a visiting team from Argentina stopped the Blue Train in its tracks.  The number one schoolboy team for the last three years eventually had to lose a match and unfortunately for them, their festival year did not kick off to well. The Paarl Boys’ team of 2018 always had the extra pressure of a 150th year celebration as well as the target of unbeaten teams on their back.

Things did not start well with the early loss against the Jaguares and the team struggled through some close fought matches against Outeniqua, Wynberg and Affies. On 5 May 2018, Grey College became the first South African team to beat Paarl Boys since Marlow in August 2014. Just a week later they also lost against a resurgent Paul Roos. They again got on the winning track by narrowly beating Bishops and Boland Landbou before running into an Oakdale team that was hungry for a win. Their first loss in 10 years against the team from Riversdale must have gotten the alarm bells ringing at Brug Street. They have one more game left against SACS to be able to rectify things before the big one at Faure Street. At this stage, it seems like the boys from Southern Paarl are in for a hiding come Interschools if their current loss of form continues.

Despite their few losses, the team still managed to produce nine Craven Week players with three playing for the Western Province team and six for the WP XV team. Three players in captain Adrian Alberts, Evan Roos and Emile van Heerden were also awarded SA Schools colours.

Paarl Gimnasium 2018 Season:

In contrast to their southern neighbours, the Paarl Gimnasium team started the season like a house on fire and won all their games bar one against Paul Roos. The Gim team looks slick in attack and solid on defence and have racked up the points so far.  The team has no visible weak links with the forwards and backs combining well to form a unit that could be unstoppable come Saturday.

In their flyhalf, Charl Janson, they have a pivot who can control the game well and who knows when to give the ball air. His combination with inside centre Dawid Kellerman has ripped backline defences apart the whole season and it could be a very long afternoon for the Boys High backs on Saturday. Kellerman was deemed one of the best centres at Craven week, if not the best, and was unlucky not to be selected for SA Schools.

Paarl Gim had six boys in total selected for the two Craven Week sides with winger Stravino Jacobs being selected for SA Schools.

Paarl Gim has more Craven Week and SA Schools players, making them the weekend favourites. The Gimnasium team also outperformed the boys in blue and did much better against the same opposition throughout the year. On performance alone, it seems that the Paarl Gim will walk away as easy winners in this derby, but this is not an ordinary derby.

 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 21 players that have represented South Africa since 1906 of which 19 have been capped for tests. 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. Their latest contribution is prop Thomas du Toit, captain of the 2013 1st XV.

Maritzburg College vs Glenwood High School Historic Overview

Date: 24 March Kick-off: 14h00 Channel: SS 8

Premier Interschools 2018 kicks off this Saturday, when a 97-year-old rivalry continues with Maritzburg College taking on their big rivals from KZN Glenwood High.

The first match between the two schools was played in 1921 at Glenwood, which Glenwood won 5-0. In the Maritzburg College Reunion encounter in June 2010, Maritzburg College beat Glenwood at Goldstones. This is the first time that College had beaten Glenwood since 2006.

The biggest victory for Maritzburg over Glenwood was 61-13 at Maritzburg in 1995, while the biggest victory for Glenwood over Maritzburg was 57-12 at Kings Park in 2015. Maritzburg writes about the fixture as a long rivalry between the two schools that started in 1921, making Glenwood one of our oldest and most respected rivals. At that stage, the normal practice was to play opponents twice each season, home and away. Glenwood, together with Westville, are the only schools in the province that can provide matches for all Maritzburg’s teams, which makes this encounter an eagerly-awaited prospect.

Over many years Maritzburg has had the better of exchanges at First XV level and this is reflected in the statistics below. However, Glenwood’s rugby has improved dramatically in recent years and have had most of victories over the last 15 years

As can be seen by the last 10 games played, Glenwood is dominating the scoreboard with wins while the best Maritzburg College could do was two draws in 2012.

Early season form looks to favor Glenwood once again, but form alone is not always the key to winning such fierce derbies. Passion and willpower sometimes get surprising results.

Pre-Season Results and 2018 Fixtures

Glenwood has played five pre-seasons warm up matches in the shortened format and showed some glimpses of what is to come.

Their season officially kicks off with this Premier Interschools match against Maritzburg College. Glenwood have some very tough fixtures coming up in the season that also includes an invite to the World Schools Festival being held at Paarl Boys to celebrate their 150th birthday.
