Waterkloof & Jeppe Meet

Proud Jeppe go to Pretoria to meet proud Waterkloof on Saturday. It is always a tough match.

Both are schools who take rugby seriously and have been much admired for their achievements and style of play.

Season So Far

Jeppe, who have been able to compete with the best in recent times, have enjoyed a better season than Waterkloof in numbers, but then they have probably had an easier fixture list.

Jeppe are ranked 18th in the Top 20 while Waterkloof are in the small group just under the Top 20. That means there is in reality not much between the two.

Jeppe have won 11 of their 13 matches, Waterkloof four of their 11 matches. The two which Jeppe lost are the two they played against Top 20 sides. Waterkloof have played eight Top 20 sides, beating Monument, one of the eight.

Result against Common Opponent

KES: Waterkloof won 35-23; Jeppe won 24-21


Waterkloof’s players are eligible for the Blue Bulls, Jeppe’s for the Golden Lions.
