Boland Landbou, for a second successive weekend, fronted brilliantly in the Bestmed Western Cape Schools Rugby Premier Division.
Landbou scored a famous 24-15 win against rivals Paarl Gymnasium, who lost for the third time this season.
Landbou, a week ago, came back from 29-10 to beat Stellenberg 35-34, but it’s the win against Gym that would have been even sweeter.
Stellenberg recovered from the disappointment of their one-point defeat to emphatically deal with the challenge of Wynberg 47-5, and Paarl Boys’ unbeaten march continued with a 25-0 shutout of hosts Bishops at Piley Rees.
Landbou aside, the biggest surprise was Rondebosch drawing 14-14 with neighbours SACS.
Bosch have had a difficult season and gave up plenty points to the likes of Paarl Boys’ and Paul Roos in recent weeks, while SACS have lost only once this year.
Derbies invariably make nonsense of league form, and SACS, as they did against Bishops last month, had to fight all the way to get a draw.
