It is one of the oldest schools match in South Africa, when King William's Town and East London meet. This time it's in East London when Dale go down to Selborne, a match that dates back to 1892.

It is always a grand occasion with lots of enthusiasm. The climax to the weekend's fun and games is the 1st XV match.

This year Selborne are the favourites to win but both sides play attacking rugby and it could just be a great game.

Season So  Far

Selborne are currently ranked 10th on the FNB Top 20, showing that they are a great side. Dale have been on the Top 20 and are just off it now.
