The Grey College juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down after they hammered Grey High 58-0 in a Premier Interschools match in Bloemfontein on Saturday afternoon.
The boys from the Free State scored 10 tries and kept the proverbial clean sheet to record their fourth successive win over their Port Elizabeth rivals. The last time Grey High had any success in this fixture was a 27-20 victory in 2014.
It’s also the third year in a row that Grey College recorded over 50 points in this fixture. They beat Grey High 73-10 in 2017 and followed it up with a 63-8 demolition job in 2018.
Grey College are still unbeaten this year, having already dealt with Selborne, Paarl Gymnasium, Paarl Boys’ High and Affies. They still have to face to Paul Roos in their final match, which should a cracking fixture.
Grey High fought hard in the first half, and only conceded two tries before the break to trail 12-0. However, their resistance crumbled in the second stanza, as Grey College, littered with provincial stars, went up a few gears after the break.
Grey College play with pace, power and precision. Their forwards hurt their rivals upfront and set the platform for their speedy backs to run riot. They were also very good from broken play.
Wing Marcell Muller scored a hat trick for the Bloemfontein side, while lock Jan-Hendrik Wessels and hooker Andre-Hugo Venter, the son of former Bok stalwart Andre, chipped in with a brace of tries.
Captain Ian Small-Smith capped off another fine performance with a try after the break, while fullback Franco Knoetze and flyhalf FC du Plessis also crossed the line to see off the uninspiring Grey High team.
