Big ups to SSL for coming on board to livestream the Noord-Suid!!!
The line-up for the (take a big breath now) Barloworld Toyota Menlyn Noord Suid Toernooi vie Hoërskole 2017 on Saturday 01 April & Tuesday 04 April at Waterkloof in Pretoria, has been made available.
|Date||1st XV TIME||2nd XV TIME|
|Sat.01Apr17||12h30||EG Jansen||Boland Landbou||08h55|
|Tue.04Apr17||13h00||EG Jansen||Paarl Gim||09h10|
The four Suid spanne are unchanged: Boland Landbou, Outeniqua, Paarl Gim and Stellenberg. The first three on the list are formidable teams in any given season. Stellenberg’s star is on the rise and they might return home from Pretoria as the surprise package performer.
Debutants EG Jansen will add much needed oomph to the Noord‘s challenge. Jansies replace fellow Valke school Kempton Park, who really struggled to come to terms with the higher level of competitiveness posed by the Suid schools this year. Bigger and better things are expected of Menlopark in 2017. Menlo did have a nice tussle against Stellenberg in the Day-1 main game this year but then provided little resistance for a rampant Boland Landbou a few days later, conceding 50 points in the demolition. Garsfontein and hosts Waterkloof make up the balance of the Gauteng based foursome.
