NewsGZanderduPlessisGrey College will be out seeking revenge when they lock horns with Selborne College this Saturday in Bloemfontein. The match kicks off at 13:30.

All the matches on the A-field will be live streamed on DigiTV.co.za.

Last year Selborne College managed to bag their first victory since 1996 against Grey in East London. Their hero on that day – flyhalf, Thomas Bursey, will once again be one of their key players. This time however he will be filling the scrumhalf jersey. Bursey was a third team call-up last year, but since that day cemented his place in the starting line-up.

Grey College has showed so far this year that they are a team that will not easily be beaten. They ended Paarl Boys’ High’s undefeated run against South African opponents since 2014 last Saturday at Brug Street in Paarl.

Like most successful Grey College first teams of the yesteryear this year’s team has a midfield combination to take note of. Franco Smith and Wyclef Vlitoor is developing in a formidable combination. Smith’s biggest attribute is his distribution skills, while Vlitoor has the quick feet and pace to compliment that.

Grey College defeated HTS Drostdy by 47-5 during Wildeklawer in Kimberley. Selborne College lost against the Donkeys of Drostdy by 26-29 during the Kearsney College Easter Festival.

Selborne College danger man is their fullback, Siba Xamlashe. Hy represented Border at last year’s Craven Week in Johannesburg. The match-up between the two hookers, Venter (Grey College) and Jaques Goosen (Selborne) is also one to look forward to.

The teams:

Grey College: 15 Richard Kriel, 14 Ian-Small-Smith, 13 Wyclef Vlitoor, 12 Franco Smith, 11 Lesley Botha, 10 Zander du Plessis, 9 AJ Bezuidenhoudt, 8 Werner Gouws, 7 De Wet Marais, 6 Raynardo Gouveia, 5 WJ Steenkamp (captain), 4 Danwich Beukes, 3 Herman Agenbag, 2 André-Hugo Venter, 1 Jan-Hendrik Wessels.

Selborne College: 15 Siba Xamlashe, 14 Jarrod Ramsey, 13 Likhaye Tengimfene, 12 Mnombo Zwellindaba, 11 Sibulele Mali, 10 Mntungwa Mapantsela, 9 Thomas Bursey, 8 Rayden Masters, 7 Jared Taylor, 6 Troy Mynhardt, 5 Grant Pretorius, 4 Nolan Kemp, 3 Shakeel Naidoo, 2 Jaques Goosen, 1 Akalinekeli Dlakavu.
