Selborne captain Lungelo Gosa is determined to end his school career on a high when he leads his tight-knit team out against Grey High in Port Elizabeth.

The dynamic flyhalf, who intends to play Sevens next year and describes his style as similar to "Quade Cooper with a touch of Aaron Cruden," knows that they face a serious test away from home.

Having come through the age-groups with many of his teammates at Selborne, Gosa is hoping that their team spirit will be a decisiove factor this weekend.

"We are quite a tight bunch, we have come through together since Grade 8 so hopefully we can end on a high," he said.

Gosa was picked for the Border Craven Week side this year, and he said that playing in Polokwane with the Border team was "a great experience, lots of fun and a learning curve."

Selborne have only lost two matches this season – against Glenwood and Grey College – and they are hoping to get revenge for last year when Grey PE beat them at home.

However, having been a part of that team that was humbled on home soil last year, Gosa knows that Grey PE will be a tough nut to crack.

"It is always a tough game, they are a very hard and physical side so we will have to step up," he said.

With a big cold front currently sweeping across the country it looks like the match could be played in the wet, but Gosa is keeping a positive attitude about the conditions which he thinks might suit his team.

"It looks like it will rain so we will have to muscle it up a bit but that will suit us as we have a pretty big pack," he said.
