Premier Interschools 2017 Fixtures
Premier Interschools has released the details of its fixtures for 2017 - 12 top matches involving 14 top schools, all televised on Supersport.
There are some wonderful matches, including the biggest Interschools in the world - when Boys' High and Gim meet at the ground in Faure Street, Paarl and over 20 00 spectators come to watch with enthusiasm, more people than most Super Rugby matches attract.
Apart from a derby as old and close as that one there will also matches involving schools far apart - Paarl Gim, and Affies of Pretoria, Grey of Port Elizabeth and Paul Roos of Stellenbosch, Monnas of Krugersdorp and Glenwood of Durban, Grey of Bloemfontein and Paarl Boys' High who have over the last two years usurped Grey's place at the top of the tree, KES of Johannesburg and Maritzburg College and the transmontane derby between the two agricultural schools, Boland Landbou of Agter-Paarl and Oakdale of Riversdale.
They are matches that attract great interest.
There will be other televised schools matches, as at Classic Clashes, the Easter Tournaments and Craven Week.
