Affies will come up against KZN’s top-rated school Maritzburg College at home this Saturday.
Affies have been dominant this year, with 10 wins out of 10 games (most of them against the country’s top schools) this season. Their unbeaten record will come under threat when they host Maritzburg College in Pretoria this weekend.
College have beaten Affies before and have run well this year with six wins from their 9 matches. While the home team should be too strong to suffer an upset, don’t rule one out.
Grey College have drawn their last two games against Selborne (16-16) and Paarl Boys’ (15-15), with the latter stalemate the most disappointing as the relinquished a 15-5 lead. They still, however, remain unbeaten in 2011 and will look to return to winning ways with a trip to Free State rivals Fichardtpark.
Other big matches up north see Waterkloof up against Eldoraihne, St John’s visit Pretoria Boys’ while Marais Viljoen clash with Florida. Monument have the weekend off.
