The annual Graeme College Rugbyday which takes place tomorrow in Grahamstown will see Grey High School of Port Elizabeth and Diocesan College (Bishops) of Cape Town clash in the main match. Both teams like to an expansive game so this fixture promises to produce some exhilarating running rugby. Bishops defeated St. Andrew’s College by 35-33 on Thursday thanks to a last gasp try.   

Grey PE’s fullback, Keanu Vers, and flyhalf, Curwin Bosch, are two of the five players to watch out for on the day. Both of them played crucial roles in Eastern Province being crowned unofficial champions of the Coca-Cola Craven Week in Middelburg (Mpumalanga) last year for the first time since 1977. In that year Springbok legend, Danie Gerber and Boelie Serfontein played for the Eastern Province’s school side. Serfontein represented Eastern Province senior side and is the father of Springbok centre, Jan Serfontein. Bosch was named Coca-Cola Craven Week Player of the Year for his performances during the tournament.

Bishops’ left wing, André Manuel, is a force on attack. He scored ten tries for his school’s first XV during 2014 and will surely cross the try-line regularly this season as well. Selborne College’s centre, David Brits, would want to build on the excellent season he’s had during 2014. He represented Border at the Craven Week in Middelburg. Selborne will clash with Die Brandwag from Uitenhage in their match on the day.
