Eastern Cape school rugby results wrap-up
In the Premier Interschool’s encounter on Saturday, Paul Roos put up a confrontational performance to beat leading Eastern Cape representatives, Grey High, 36-21 in Stellenbosch.
Paul Roos were more tactical in their forward-inclined game-play as Grey High aimed to stimulate their attack through their bigger forwards, but came out second best. Heading into the game, Grey High had some rolling momentum after being unbeaten - winning their first four games all by more than 20 points.
The side from Stellenbosch halted that momentum as they came out convincing winners, scoring four tries to Grey’s two. They managed to capitalise on opportunities better and used their territorial advantage in aiding their ticking points tally.
