Premier Interschools is again featuring some of the top schoolboy teams in the country in 12 matches stretching from the 25th March to the 26th August. Some of the oldest and fiercest rivalries will be on show over the span of 23 weeks to come with some 14 different schools on show. There will also be a new edition of an Interschools match on show for the first time this season.
The No 1 schoolboy team for the last two years, Paarl Boys’ High, will again be showcased in three tough encounters against their old traditional rivals Paul Roos Gimnasium, Grey College and of course Paarl Gimnasium. Other teams that will also be showcased is Grey College (2 games), Paul Roos (4 games), Paarl Gim (3 games), Maritzburg College (2 games), Affies (2 games), while the likes of Monument, Grey High of Port Elizabeth, King Edward VII, Glenwood, Boland Landbou, Oakdale Landbou, Bishops and Rondebosch Boys’ High will each also make an appearance in 2017’s Premier Interschools program.
On 6 May 2017 the premier interschools rugby party moves to Port Elizabeth next when the Maroon Machine of Paul Roos Gimnasium takes on “the other Grey” when they meet Grey High in their annual interschools fixture. Paul Roos have won the last two encounters against strong Grey sides and will look to extend the stretch to three in a row. Grey, having had a hat trick against the boys from Stellenbosch in 2012, 2013 and 2014 with a young Curwin Bosch leading the attack, will look to stop the rot and showcase the strength of their rugby.
