SA Schools Sides Confirmed For World Schools Festival


Carinat Marketing announced the ten South African Teams that will participate in the second World Schools festival to be hosted at Paul Roos in Stellenbosch from 25-30 March.

Paul Roos will be joined by SACS, Affies, Grey College, Monnas, Glenwood, Boland Landbou, Paarl Gim and Hilton College. The last team will be an invitational side managed by SARU.

Nico Serfontein, who heads up SARU's Elite Player Identification program said they jumped at the opportunity as several of their players do not come from the traditional rugby playing schools. The team will be selected from only schoolboy rugby players and will give SARU the opportunity to see the boys in action against strong opposition and will help a lot in their preparation for the July u/18 international series, according to Serfontein.
