After the June school holiday break, the focus moves up to KwaZulu Natal with a big match expected between Maritzburg College and Affies. This rivalry started in 1996 and they met twice in 2011. This will be the 25th time that these schools meet for an action-packed interschools edition. Affies thoroughly dominate this fixture with 21 victories versus three Maritzburg wins. For many years, Maritzburg College’s rugby has been characterised by the rugged qualities and outstanding support work of its forwards, the hard-hitting tackles and explosive running of its backs. Most notable, however, is the fierce determination and spirit typifying College teams and imbuing them with an unshakeable will to win. Affies is famed and regarded as one of the best rugby schools in South Africa. It has delivered many Springbok players in the past and continues to supply loads of talent in the SA Schools and SA Academy sides. This will be a match of strength versus spirit, an exciting prospect for any schoolboy rugby enthusiasts.
