SCHOOLS PREVIEW: Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool (Affies) will host their English counterparts Pretoria Boys' High in an all Blue Bulls battle on Saturday.

In 1923 Affies played Pretoria Boys’ High for the first time.  The two schools are such close neighbours that it could almost be one campus. Close neighbours make keen rivals.  The rivalry between the two schools is certainly keen.

And this Saturday, it will be no different.

After a 17-10 win against Maritzburg College, Pretoria Boys' High come into the clash with an extra sense of confidence.

However, the visitors do face an inform Affies side, who would want to assert their dominance in this all-boys battle.

A win for the hosts - who are currently ranked 11 on the SA Top 20- could propel them into the Top 10.

Thus far, the Affies have  won eight of their 13 matches, Pretoria Boys' won nine of their 16 games.

The hosts have faced seven teams ranked in the Top 20 and have produced wins over Helpmekaar, Outeniqua and Jeppe.

Pretoria Boys' have lock horns with three teams ranked in the Top 20.

For years Affies have dominated the encounter, the last time Pretoria Boys' High won was back in 2008.

Results against Common opponents:
Maritzburg College: Affies won 40-25, Pretoria Boys' won 17-10
