Rondebosch and Bishops lower the curtain on the 2017 season with a match against each other, this time at Rondebosch Boys' High. 

They have been playing twice a season for years and years. Do some little multiplication with your two-times tables and you get a vast number of matches over the years. There are, for example 36 this year alone. They are intense matches. If Bishops beat Rondebosch in Saturday season, their season  is made, and if Rondebosch beat Bishops, their season is made. They are intense encounters, nut go through all those years and all those matches and try to fin d an untoward incident. The proximity and the similarities of the two schools make for keener competition but competition that is honourable - part of good education.

The same is true for matches amongst all of the four Southern Suburbs schools.

This year SACS have been doing best but in their last two matches they have lost to Rondebosch and Bishops. In fact Rondebosch has faring best, having beaten Bishops as well. Bishops have beaten SACS and Wynberg have, unusually, gone winless.

There is talk of a Triple Crown, as exists amongst the Four home Unions. Rondebosch have come closest to winning it.
