Grey College proved that they are the No 1 school in the country with a 34-12 away win against Paarl Boys last Saturday.
Flyhalf Johan Goosen was the stand-out player as he scored 19 points via a try, two penalties and four conversions. Lock Nicolaas Immelmann, prop Neethling Fouché and fullback Niel Marais also crossed the chalk.
First XV head coach Ingo Machts said their structured game plan helped them triumph in Paarl.
‘It was a great match which was played with good spirit by both teams. It was also a privilege to have Jonathan Kaplan officiate the game,’ Machts told keo.co.za.
‘I think Grey were better because we played a structured game. Because we have a small pack, they are very mobile and they got the backline quality ball. The field was a bit wet under foot, but the conditions allowed us to play expansively.’
Paarl Boys only managed two tries, with one being converted.
