Large tygerberg vs brackenfell 20

CLASSIC CLASH PREVIEW: Hoërskool Brackenfell take a short trip to Parow to take on the struggling Hoërskool Tygerberg in their annual Classic Clash on Saturday.

The fixture used to be dominated by Tygerberg, but since Brackenfell recorded their first Classic clash win last year, it seems the Tygerberg have lost their way.

To make things worse for the Parow side, Brackenfell have been in good form.

The visitors have won 14 of their 19 matches this season.

Last week, the Brakkies secured a comfortable 54-10 win over HTS Bellville while Tygerberg suffered a 26-90 loss to Stellenberg at Tierberg.

This year, Brackenfell popped in-and-out of the Top 20 ranking and a win could again put them on the list.
