Graeme do SA proud

Graeme College reached the final of an international schools rugby tournament Down Under.

The Eastern Cape side won eight of their nine matches against teams from Australia and New Zealand, losing only in the final to the hosts, Brisbane Boys College.

‘It was great,’ Graeme coach Brendan Grant told the Daily Dispatch. ‘There is a lot of interaction between the three countries on a rugby front.’

Captain Wikus Coetzee said that the tour was a ‘fantastic’ experience and that ‘it was great meeting new people and experiencing new cultures’.

Coetzee explained that the team was tired after playing two games a day, and attributed their loss in the final to the tough schedule.
