Large queen s try against dale 800

It has been cold in mountainous Queenstown of late and they will possibly find their annual trek down to King William's town a relief.

Where Queenstown has been below freezing this week, King has been above freezing, as high as a chilly 7°C. 
 
The big Border trio - Dale, Queen's and Selborne - play each pother twice a year and it's always a grand occasion. In the their first meeting this year Queen's beat Dale on Reunion Day in Queenstown 25-24. One point but one point that mattered.
 
This last match of the season is a big one for Dale. It's the day when Dale wears pink and does its noble bit for the battle against cancer.
 
Season So Far
 
Dale have had an up-and-down season but a better season than  Queen's up-and-down season.
 
Dale, who are ranked 19th on the Schools Top 20, have won 12 and drawn one of their 18 matches. Queen's have won seven of 17 matches.
