Coming up against strong opposition every week meant that the boys needed to step up and they must be commended on their fighting attitude. The April tour to Höerskool Monument gave some of the boys a taste of touring and we recorded a well-deserved 29 – 7 win over Waterkloof on the last day. The side suffered from injury woes but was well-led by Grant Meyer, who epitomised the attitude of the team in his consistent approach. Highlights of the season include the 20 – 5 win over Hilton as well as the incredibly hard-fought 15 – 10 win over a very physical George Campbell 1st XV. My thanks are extended to the boys for their hard work and positive attitude during the season and I wish them all of the best next year. Gareth Moerdyk Played: 13 Won: 5 Lost: 8 3RD XV The three stripe had a season of mixed results. Performance was unpredictable but the boys played some exceptional rugby. Highlights included games against Clifton and St Stithians in which the team scored 50 points. The team was well-led by Nathan Shepherd who kept the boys on track even though many of them were involved in tennis and the choir tour. I am very grateful for the effor t their displayed. Due to the number of injuries suffered during the season, many of the boys received call-ups to higher teams and they can be very proud of this. The best in their careers and look forward to working with the boys who are staying. Kelvin Adam Played: 10 Won: 4 Lost: 6 4TH XV Although we had a tough season with players moving from one team to the other because of injuries, the team generally played with enthusiasm and courage throughout the season. Tough games against Hilton, Michaelhouse andWestville showed the boys capable of displaying grit. The boys played with great pride and won and lost with dignity. The matrics in the side kept the younger boys motivated and must be commended on their last season together. Stafford Green Played: 9 Won: 3 Lost: 6 With grateful thanks to the Buchner Family
