Rondebosch Boys High pounded Paarl Gymnasium in a major Western Cape Schools upset.
RBH a fortnight ago drew with Paul Roos, but after a narrow 19-15 win against SACS it was wondered if they had the all-round game to challenge, let alone beat Paarl Gymnasium, in Paarl.
The visitors showed they had more than the game to win and triumphed 34-19 for a rare Southern Suburbs win in Paarl.
In other Western Cape schools action Bishops thrashed SACS 69-27, scoring 10 tries to four. SACS were only three points behind 10 minutes before the break but three tries in this period finished off the visitors. The result will be disappointing for SACS who came within a score of beating Rondebosch Boys High away from home.
SACS supporters will also remain mystified how the 16A’s often seem to beat Bishops and then the following season take such a beating. The answer isn’t as simple as Bishops being aided by playing post matrics as has often been used as an excuse.
Paul Roos, winners against Paarl Gymnasium last week, could not sustain the momentum and lost away to Oakdale 16-12.
In other action Boland Landbou ground out a 15-5 win against Wynberg and Tyberberg cruised to a 74-3 win against Milnerton.
