Western Province Schools will be holding their ninth Newlands Rugby Day on Monday, 18 March 2013.

A Schools Day was started at Newlands in 1927 for 1st XVs and Under-15 teams. It was held each year till 1950.

In 2005 the Schools Day at Newlands was resuscitated but in different format. The first form had been a competition on a knock-out basis. The modern one is not a competition but just a set of fixtures for shortened matches of 20 minutes each way.

There will be three categories of participants - mini rugby, Under 13 and 1st XV.

The only prize will be for the school whose supporters perform the best warcries and sing-songs during the event.

The 1st XV Fixtures

15.55: SACS vs Strand

16.40: Bishops vs Stellenberg

17.25: Wynberg vs Paul Roos

18.10: Rondebosch vs Paarl Boys' High

18.55: Paarl Gim vs Boland Landbou
