Paul Roos host Grey High in live broadcasted Interschool’s derby

BY MARC JACOBSON - APRIL 7, 2016

The Mutual & Federal Interschool’s gets underway when Paul Roos, from Stellenbosch, host old foes Grey High School from Port Elizabeth on Saturday 9th April in a much anticipated rugby derby.

The last time Grey High played in Stellenbosch against Paul Roos was in 2014. On that occasion, the visitors from PE managed to persevere and claw their way back to win the game after being down by 26 points at one point in the second half.

Irreversibly, Paul Roos managed to thump Grey High 34-3 in their own back yard last year in one of only four losses for the PE side last season.

Paul Roos edge the head-to-head statistics narrowly over Grey High regarding the history of clashes between the two schools.

For those who cannot attend the match in Stellenbosch first-hand, can watch the game live on Super Sport 6 (channel 206) at 14:05 on Saturday.
