Selborne College will travel to Grahamstown this Saturday to take on the in-form St Andrew’s College.
St Andrew’s have produced some strong performances so far in 2016, winning seven of their nine games. Their only losses came in the form of a 31-17 thumping at the hands of DHS at the St Stithians Festival and a 27-17 loss to Bishops in Cape Town. Their most notable victories were a 36-8 win over a struggling Pretoria Boys’ and a 59-24 thumping of St Stithians. St Andrew’s are currently on a four-match winning streak.
Selborne have had a rockier season, although they started well with four from four. The East London side has also won seven matches, but from 12 fixtures, with three losses and two draws. They lost their 100th match against Dale College (24-19) at home the week after losing 33-29 to Queen’s in Queenstown. Last week they were thrashed 48-17 by Grey College in Bloemfontein.
In other Eastern Cape fixtures, Graeme College will be hoping to cause an upset when a powerful Grey High side visits them this Saturday. Grey have lost only two fixtures this season. Marlow, who have five wins from 11 matches, will face Hudson Park, who have eight wins from 12 matches.
