IN THE SPOTLIGHT: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN SA SCHOOLS PLAY, AND TEAMS WITH PLAYERS INVOLVED IN THOSE TWO TEAMS PLAY AND LOSE?
In fact, the absence of players can happen throughout the season for a variety of reasons – injury, flu, family commitments and punishment. And so we have to ignore excuses and treat each match as just that – a match between two schools and continue with our policy of rewarding schools that play.
Those particularly affected would be Grey PE, Grey Bloem and Paul Roos.
