    Hopefully someone is reading and will join you..

    I am in the process of getting someone to give summaries of results from the rugby week hosted in Vryheid, but it difficult to get anyone to commit.

  • @Ben (Comment 19) : All the Jozi Festivals are good. The KES Festival has an amazing atmosphere making it that little bit more attractive. In terms of schools participating, there is a misconception that the better the schools, the better the festival. Not true! Really all you need are schools with boys who play for pride for 70min and organisers who are able to match teams accd to strength to prevent 1-sided results.
