Stream Paul Roos vs Grey College 2019 live
Will Paul Roos Gymnasium break Grey College’s winning streak in the 2019 Interschools derby? Stream it live on Saturday, 17 August.
The rivalry between Stellenbosch’s Paul Roos Gymnasium and Bloemfontein’s Grey College has a long and rich history that started way back in 1967. Schoolboy rugby has been modernised somewhat since then. It is no longer child’s play.
Today, high school rugby has the feel of club rugby due to sponsorships on and around the field and the professional conditioning and organisation of the players. Not to mention that these matches are now televised.
Paul Roos and Grey College are two of the top rugby schools in South Africa, and a training ground for many Springboks, including recent additions like Damian Willemse and Herschel Jantjies.
The two powerful school teams have clashed 35 times since that first encounter in the 1960s, with Grey winning 26 of these battles.
This weekend’s match takes place on Paul Roos’s home turf at the Markotter Sports Fields and is likely to be a cracker of a match.
Grey College is unbeaten in this year’s Interschools, which is not surprising, considering that this year’s team is being touted as one of the best they have ever produced, with an average match score of 54-18.
Will Paul Roos be able to break Grey’s winning streak?
