Eastern Cape schools rugby wrap-up 28th April

BY MARC JACOBSON - APRIL 28, 2016

Grey High were back to winning ways after beating Brandwag from Uitenhage 45-12 last Saturday. Grey suffered an upset 24-20 loss to Brandwag’s sister school, Daniel Pienaar, two weeks ago, and have somewhat redeemed their dignity as a proud rugby school.

They however drop down as Eastern Cape’s top school, after Dale College caused an upset win over Selborne College 24-19 over the weekend.

There are still just four Eastern Cape schools in the SA Rugby Magazine School Rugby rankings following last weekend’s results, namely: Selborne College (22nd), Queens College (20th), Grey High (16th) and Dale College (13th).

St. Andrews from East London and Daniel Pienaar are skimming just outside the top 30, placing 31st and 33rd respectively in this week’s rankings.

Other Eastern Cape schools rugby results over the weekend:

Grey High 45 – 12 Brandwag

St. Andrews College 50 – 3 Pearson High School

Selborne College 19 – 24 Dale College

Framesby 29 – 31 Daniel Pienaar

Queens College 50 – 6 Graeme College
