Kingswood will host St Andrew’s in what should be a competitive Eastern Cape derby on Saturday.
Given the quality of opposition, St Andrew’s have had a fairly good run this season with eight wins and just five defeats.
They’ve beaten Nico Malan 22-12, Pretoria Boys’ 36-8, St Albans 14-8, Pearson 50-3, St Stithians 59-24, Graeme College 23-7, Cambridge 35-14 and Queen’s College 31-23, although they suffered a narrow 16-14 defeat at the hands of Hudson Park last weekend.
And in Kingswood, they face another stern test. The hosts have chalked up nine wins to date and two defeats against KES (26-5) and Dale (35-29).
However, since losing in late May, Kingswood have racked up two convincing wins over Stirling (46-10) and Grens (21-8) and will aim to put down a marker against St Andrew’s .
The only other scheduled encounter in the province this Saturday sees Port Rex welcome Hudson Park.
