Hoërskool Monument (Monnas) will play Hoërskool Waterkloof on Saturday, August 12 at Hoërskool Waterkloof in Pretoria in the tenth derby in the Premier Interschools series for the year and promises to be a match of high intensity.
While Monnas and Waterkloof’s regular Interschools only started in 1996, this has become one of the most eagerly anticipated matches on the schoolboy rugby calendar given the rich rugby history and heritage of these schools. Both schools are consistently among the top rugby schools in the country. They don’t get to play each other on a regular basis due to the different competition structures within the North Vaal region, but when they do get the opportunity, it is usually a highly entertaining match. Monument has the slight advantage in victories since 2005 with eight out of 13 matches and Waterkloof being on the victorious side five times..
Results Through the Years.
Monument has had a busy season so far playing 17 games in all. They had very good early wins over Paul Roos and Boland Landbou, but seem to blow hot and cold sometimes. They had disappointing losses against Welkom Gimnasium and Jeppe and should have clinched both those matches. It seems as if they are gaining momentum in the Noordvaal Cup competition and after a very close game against Garsfontein they have won their last two matches comfortably.
Monuments Season so Far
Waterkloof played fewer matches in comparison but is having a stellar season so far playing 12 matches, winning nine with two losses and a draw. They had memorable wins against Oakdale, Glenwood and Nelspruit, while only losing to a strong Garsfontein (currently ranked No 3) and EG Jansen.
Waterkloof Season so Far
The rugby derby will be broadcast live on Saturday, 12 August from 12h20 on RUG / RUGA.
