  1. @Roger: I’d say that St David’s will be favourites against St Charles…but only marginally, as the game is away. Also, I understand that PBHS has been decimated by injury recently. As they only play MC in August they may have many key players back, plus it is at home….so they have a chance of winning that one.

    Other than the above, the chances of any other wins for the GEMS is absolute zero (i.e. -273 degC) – especially now that St John’s have lost their star player for the season.

  2. @Vleis: That is sad news if I’m interpreting it correctly – St John’s no.8 Henson out for the season :(

  3. @Roger: Wonder if there is any truth in the rumour that Affies is going to give KES sticks on the hockey field this weekend??

  4. @woltrui no not likely the KES hockey side just beat Affies 4 1. Hockey played today due to schools involvement in hockey tournaments this weekend.

  5. @beet: @Roger: Yes, I’m told that a piece of his jaw went into his brain (I think), so he is out for the whole season, or maybe longer. Such a shame.

  6. @Vleis: There is no St Davids vs St Charles game any more. We stopped travelling to Johannesburg for some reason.
    We now play against St Andrews in Bloem and to make up for lost fixtures against St Davids and St Albans, We play Clifton And Michaelhouse twice.

  7. @ Vleis- how can KES have zero chance of beating Westville? After all on BHP’s top 30 they are ranked 24 and Westville 27. :mrgreen:

  8. @Crash Ball: OK thanks for that.

    @star: Yep sorry, I forgot how inconsistent KES are, so they do have an outside chance of beating Westville away. If it was at home, I would have had it at 50/50 or even KES as marginal favourites.

  9. @Grasshopper: I had the same thought. At the Kearsney tournament we luckily cleaned up the other KZN schools. Not Glenwood though. We are waiting for you’s okies in Pretoors. :wink:
