Dubbed as one of, if not, the biggest high school rugby matches in the history of South African schoolboy rugby. In the 10th match of the season the great rivalry of the Paarl teams will feature – Paarl Boys High up against Paarl Gimnasium. The Galpille against the Bloedworse, South vs North. A whole town divided for one week into two definitive camps. You are either Blue and White or Gold, Maroon and Green. The passion that goes with this rugby derby is unbelievable and for more than 100 years the matches have been so closely fought that the average winning margin is just 4 points. This is truly one of the few matches that is unpredictable, and both sides will give it their all for 70 minutes. When the final whistle blows, there will be two sides that left it all on the field. One side will be in ecstasy following a victory while another will be devastated at being on the losing side on the scoreboard. The unusual events of 2020 had this fixture not being played last year for only the second time in a 105-year history. Let us hope 2021 will do this great and historic fixture the justice it so rightfully deserves.
