Large paul roos v oakdale 800

Now this is another interesting match when Riversdale comes down to Stellenbosch, stormy weather of another kind.

They are perennially two of South Africa's top schools and the 1st XV match will be streamed live.

Paul Roos are still up there, 11th in the Schools Top 20. Oakdale have been performing less well than usual - till last week, that is when they ran the all-conquering Paarl Boys' High close.

In their 10 matches, Oakdale, numerically a much smaller school, have lost five times; in their 10 Paul Roos have lost four times. Both sides have lost only to Top 20 teams. Paul Roos have beaten four Top 20 teams, Oakdale none.

Results against Common Opponents

Drostdy: Oakdale lost 24-13; Paul Roos won 32-19
Paarl Boys' High: Oakdale lost 36-31; Paul Roos lost 21-9
Paarl Gim: Oakdale lost 31-27; Paul Roos lost 20-19

Paul Roos have the advantage of a home ground in the wintry Cape of storms where more heavy rain is expected.
