Framesby go across to Grey
Rugby in the Eastern Province has many rivalries of all sorts based on differences.
This is one of them – Grey vs Framesby, English medium vs Afrikaans medium. To add to the rivalry their locations are close. Then, too, there is the age difference, for Grey, founded in 1856, is 110 years older, which makes Framesby upstarts in a way. Added to that, Framesby are a really good rugby school, capable of challenging Grey for hegemony of Port Elizabeth.
