The oldest game in South Africa?
SHARE

On Saturday SACS move from Newlands to the Diocesan College in Rondebosch for matches which may well have been the first in South Africa.

In 1861 Canon Ogilvie, the principal of Bishops, got the boys to play his form of the handling, running, tackling game to curb their energies. SACS followed suit soon after and oral tradition has it that they started playing each other in about 1865. There is no written record but they are at it again this week and the game is now rugby union football, and it will be played with creative enthusiasm and in a sporting spirit, as it usually is twice a year.

It is late in the season, a time when the Top Four of the Cape Peninsula settle down to a second round of matches against each other.

Season So Far

Bishops has been having a better-than-usual season, SACS a not-as-good-as-usual season.

Bishops is ranked 11th on the Schools Top 20, SACS in the pressure group below the Top 20.

Bishops have played 12, winning eight and losing four. They have played against five Top 20 sides.
SACS have played 13 matches, winning seven and losing six. They have played against six Top 20 sides.
