SACS captain Jordan Chait is hoping his team can finally get a win over Wynberg, something they have not achieved in the last three seasons.
 
The two teams will face-off in their Classic Clash on Saturday and Chait, who has recently been selected for the Western Province Academy side, said his team are aware of the game their Cape rivals try and play.
 
"Wynberg have had the better of us for the past three seasons so we are really looking forward to breaking their stranglehold this weekend.
 
"Wynberg have a fairly structured approach but that is what works in modern rugby. It makes them very difficult to beat," he said.
 
The 1.78m, 78kg flyhalf said it was a dream come true when he was named captain of SACS' first team.
 
"I feel very honoured as it had been a dream of mine [to be named captain]. My philosophy as captain is to lead by example and from the front. To be courageous as well," he added.
 
Chait says the highlight of his career was beating Affies at Kearsney this year as well as beating local rivals Bishops and Rondebosch away from home this season.
 
He will be looking to his team to continue their good form with another win, this time against Wynberg.
 
"We are going well and have achieved some great results. We have just let ourselves down a bit of late with two below par performances at home against Boland opposition," Chait said.
 
"The team has a good blend of Grade 12s and Grade 11s. The backline is mostly matrics while the pack has five Grade 11s. We only have one injury for Saturday's encounter.
 
"My message to the team was that they should believe in themselves and go out and just enjoy the occasion."
 
After being part of the first team for two years now, Chait describes himself as a player and captain that can "kick and pass well, with a good eye for the gap". Chait said he is also able to read the game well.
 
The 18-year-old will be off to the Western Province Rugby Institute next year. He also has his sights on studying at either Stellenbosch University or the University of Cape Town.
