Glenwood-Grey game cancelled
10 Aug 2012
The annual Glenwood-Grey Bloem interschool match-up has been cancelled because of bad weather.
The two schools were supposed clash on Saturday in Durban, but the schoolboys from Bloemfontein were forced to pull out because of the dangerous weather conditions.
Grey Bloem were supposed to leave earlier this week, but road closures on the M3 and the snowfall up north saw them cancel the trip.
‘It’s disappointing to pull out, because we were looking forward to match against Glenwood,’ Grey Bloem 1st XV head coach Ingo Machts told Schoolboy Derby. ‘But the conditions up here are really dangerous, so we’ve had to call off the game.
‘We’ll now focus on our annual interschools derby against Paul Roos next weekend.’
