The annual Wildeklawer tournament in Kimberley will once again be one of the highlights of the schools' rugby calendar in 2022.
Paarl Gimnasium will meet Grey College in Bloemfontein on the final day that promises to be one of the top matches of 2022. The Gimmies managed to defeat Grey College (18-16) for the first time since 2012 during this year's Monnas Easter Festival in Krugersdorp.
Paarl Gimnasium will face Helpmekaar in their opening match of the tournament in the City of Diamonds. They also met during the 2021 season when Gimmies eased past Helpmekaar by 52-5 during the Noord/Suid tournament in Pretoria.
Grey College will face Boland Landbou in their opening match in Kimberley. The opening match of the tournament will once again be on the Friday with the Bulle from Oakdale Landbou taking on the Wit Bulle from Affies. This will also be a grudge match of sort after Oakdale Landbou managed to defeat Affies for the first time ever earlier this year with a victory of 46-21.
Durban High School will make its debut at next year's Wildeklawer. Maritzburg College will also make a return to the big league as they will also attend next year's festival of rugby in Kimberley. The last time that Maritzburg College's Director of Rugby, Hein Kriek, attended the prestigious Wildeklawer tournament he was in charge of Paul Roos Gimnasium.
Paul Roos Gimnasium will have a first-ever encounter against Garsfontein of Pretoria. The team from Stellenbosch will also face Glenwood during their visit to the City of Diamonds.
Meetings between Paarl Boys' High and Affies have also been exciting matches to watch for the last couple of years. This match on the final day therefore also promises to be one of the highlights of the tournament. Boishaai will face Maritzburg College in their opening clash.
Interesting is the fact that the organisers could not find a spot for Dr. EG Jansen of Boksburg back into the line-up. The team from Boksburg was one of the top teams north of the Vaalriver in 2021.
