Affies Welcome Maritzburg College
SHARE

It’s a massive trek from Pietermaritzburg over the Drakensberg and on to Pretoria. The journey is long enough but the numbers are huge – 28 rugby teams, 15 hockey teams, teams for golf, cross country, table tennis, cycling and a cultural gathering. And with it come staff and parents. It is a big affair between the two great schools.

Being a Premier Interschools Match, the first team match will be shown live on SuperSport.
