Grey College rewrite record books in interschools romp

2017-08-14 11:26

Cape Town - South African interschools rugby record books were rewritten over the weekend when Bloemfontein's Grey College annihilated renowned KwaZulu-Natal school, Glenwood.

Durban-based Glenwood has a proud rugby tradition with as many as seven past pupils having represented the Springboks - including current injured Bok captain Warren Whiteley.

But at the weekend their reputation took a battering at the hands of Grey College in Bloemfontein.

With the exception of the Under-15A side, all of Grey’s teams won in convincing fashion.

In the 19 matches played, Grey scored a total of 1 998 points, conceding 119 in the process, for an average score of 105-6.

The Grey First XV won 83-10, while the standout result was the Under-15Ds result which saw Grey win by a staggering 221-0.

What makes the result even more remarkable it that Under-15 level matches are played over 25 minutes per half!

From Under-16 level upwards matches are normally 30 minutes per half, with the exception of the first and second XVs, who play 35 minutes per side.

Grey's First XV were without three SA Schools players, while Glenwood were missing four SA Schools players.

Grey College’s rugby results against Glenwood:

First XVs win 83-10
Cherries (second team) win 74-8
Peaches (3rd) win 124-6
