From the schools: Grey College

Grey College will kick off their season on Monday when they play Harmony Sports School from Virginia.

Harmony are well-known for their running rugby and will provide a big challenge for the boys from Bloemfontein.

Players like William Small-Smith, Johan Goosen, Niel Jordaan and Henco Venter will form the core of the Grey team as they all played for the 1st XV last year.

The coaching staff will use this game to finalise their team that will be participating in the Kearsney College Easter Festival, and build some early momentum ahead of a tough season.

‘A good first game always builds confidence and shows whether pre-season training has been successful,’ said coach Roelf Meyer. ‘There is healthy competition among the boys, and they all want to boost their chances of playing for the 1st XV in 2010.’
