Wynberg Boys’ will face a tough challenge when they host Paarl Boys’ on Saturday.
Wynberg will be looking to build on a strong performance against Tygerberg last weekend, while Boishaai are hoping to extend their 26-match winning streak.
Boishaai continued their unbeaten 2015 run with a 48-6 win away at Brandwag in their first match of the 2016 season. They followed this up with a crushing 54-0 win against a Lions Invitational XV at the St John’s Easter Festival, and finished the festival unbeaten with wins over Helpmekaar (24-17) and Nelspruit (17-11). They were pushed to the brink against Outeniqua in their next match, but secured a last-minute 29-27 win. They stretched their unbeaten streak when they beat Bishops 58-12 last weekend.
Wynberg started their season with a 31-31 draw against Michaelhouse at the St Stithians Easter Festival, but followed it up with wins against Westville (17-7) and St Alban’s (32-27) to end the festival with two wins from three. They then travelled to Rondebosch Boys’ for their first Cape derby, but only managed a single try as they lost 29-8. They bounced back last weekend, beating Tygerberg 29-7 at home.
In other matches in the Western Cape on Saturday, Rondebosch travel to Stellenbosch to face Paul Roos. Bosch are yet to lose in 2016, with wins over Wynberg (29-8) and De Kuilen (35-5) and four wins on tour in Ireland, while Paul Roos will be looking to get their season back on track after going down 28-24 to Paarl Gym in a Premier Interschools match last weekend.
Paarl Gym travel to SACS on Saturday having won four of their five matches this season, including wins at home against Boland Landbou (34-14) and Paul Roos (28-24). SACS have won two out of five this season, beating Framesby 19-13 at the Kearsney Easter Festival and Durbanville (45-13) at home two weeks ago.
