This Saturday 20 rugby teams of Grey High School will leave the sea and go up over the mountains to play Bloemfontein’s Grey College in a Premier Interschools fixture.

*To make recognition easier we shall refe to Grey College Secondary School of Bloemfontein as Grey Bloem and Grey High School of Port Elizabeth as Grey PE.

The two great schools share the Grey name as they were both founded by Sir George Grey, the popular governor of the Cape Colony – Grey Bloem in 1855 and Grey PE in 1856 as the Grey Institute which later changed to Grey High School.
