Pretoria Boys’ High 1st XV coach Greg Hassenkamp is ‘nervous’ about Saturday’s match with KES.
While Boys’ High won both of their matches against the Jo’burg-based school last year (35-17 and 17-11), KES are expected to provide far tougher opposition in 2009.
‘I am a bit nervous about the game,’ Hassenkamp told keo.co.za. ‘Our pre-season preparation has gone well, but we were a bit disrupted by the cricket season, as were KES. We are really looking forward to the game – we are up against a quality side and will have to play well to win.’
Hassenkamp singles out Richmond Collings as Boys’ High’s player to watch. “He is very quick and played Craven Week for the Blue Bulls last year.”
Weather conditions for the match are expected to be ideal, with a vocal crowd sure to give KES an edge.
Kickoff is at 1:30pm.
