Unbeaten vs Unbeaten, Round 2
SHARE

Grey College and Glenwood were both unbeaten. They met and drew. Now unbeaten Grey play unbeaten Paul Roos, the top schools match of the 2018 season.

The match is an FNB Classic Clash, a good title for a great match. It will be broadcast live on television.

It is again a pity that SA Schools play on the same day and so both teams are without players. It happens through injury, it’s true, but this surely, unlike an injury, is avoidable.

But it remains the schools match that the country is most interested in. After all, One is playing Two at Two’s ground.
