For the second time this year Volkskool play their neighbours Union High in an intense derby down at Botanics – the Botanical Sports Grounds. The match is an FNB Classic Clash.

The two schools have been playing since 1922, the year Union High was founded in its present form. That year Union High played Volkskool’s 3rd XV. Volkskool was  much bigger, there being more Afrikaans speakers in the area. Volkskool was the first Afrikaans-medium school in the Cape Province and their koshuise were big and full.

In 1931 Union High won for the first time. Volkskool have won more often. But this century Union High leads 9-5 with two draws and would probably be favourites this year again.

Union High put a great deal into their rugby. They have played 15 matches, winning nine.

Here are two results that suggest that this could again be a tight match:

Gill College: Volkskool lost 31-28; Union High lost 34-29
Westering: Volkskool lost 19-14; Union High lost 27-20
