Selborne College will be the only East London school taking part in the 12th annual Standard Bank Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival in KwaZulu-Natal from April 18 to 22.
They will be competing against 11 other top school rugby teams from across the country, namely:
- Kearsney, Glenwood, and Durban High Schools from KwaZulu-Natal;
- Pretoria Boys High, Hoerskool Dr EG Jansen, HTS Middleburg and Welkom Gimnasium from Gauteng;
- HTS Drostdy; Hoerskool Noord-Kaap from the Northern Cape; and
- Hoerskool Framesby from the Eastern Cape.
In addition to thrilling rugby, members of the KZN Rugby Union and the Sharks Academy will be watching the matches to identify potential future players which will surely encourage participanting players to be on top form throughout.
Sharks Academy managing director Etienne Fynn said the Kearsney Tournament not only brought together some of the top schoolboy rugby talent from across the country, it was also a great opportunity to expose players and coaches to the Sharks brand.
“Rugby has become a realistic career opportunity and the festival is an ideal springboard for players to show their skill and flair for the game, whilst also providing obvious benefits to rugby in the province,” said Fynn.
The kick-off is 9.30am daily and gate entrance is R25 per person. For more information, visit the Kearsney website.
