In the Schoolboy Derby feature match of the weekend, Grey Bloem carried on their unbeaten record for the year with a 28-6 win over KZN rivals Glenwood in Bloemfontein. The visitors challenged the hosts well in the first half, holding them to a 6-6 deadlock, but Grey Bloem ran away with it in the second stanza and scored 22 unanswered points for victory.
