CRAVEN WEEK SPOTLIGHT: Saturday is the final day of the 2017 Craven Week and the 2017 Academy Week. In all 36 matches will be played - 72 teams, 1656 players.

In both the Craven Week and the Academy Week, the later teams meet, the higher their ranking. The greatest honour is to play in the last match on the last day.

Golden Lions' teams will play in the last match of both the Craven Week and the Academy Week. Their opponents in the Craven Week's last match will be KwaZulu-Natal who played so magnificently on Day Four.

In the Academy Week's last match, the Golden Lions will play South Western Districts.

Both weeks have been high-scoring; some matches have been grossly one-sided. It is to be hoped that there will be good competition on the last day.

At the end of the day, the SA Schools team will be announced.
