Over the weekend, Saturday the 12th of August 2017, Selborne College celebrated its 125 years of rugby.
The first match that Selborne College ever played was against their rivals from King Williams Town, Dale College in August 1892.
To celebrate 125 years of rugby, the school held a Dinner on Friday night themed "Selborne College Rugby Through The Decades."
Chase Morrison speaks of the occasion:
It was an exceptional weekend for Selborne College Boys, with all the rugby teams getting a win barring the 2nd team going down narrowly 17-15.
The old boys game played an hour after the FNB Classic Clash. Mr Jeff Fetting Class of 1962 Got the game underway, not with your conventional drop kick but with the old school, off the tee kick-off. The Game was played in great spirit from both the Selborne old boys and the Dale old boys.
Team consisted of all ages from year 2000 to 2013. Seeing the legendary Chester Koyana take the Selborne field again, along side him was twinkle toes Phiwe Nomlomo in the centre field. The half-backs combination was Matt King and James Allderman respectively.
In the pack was Sibulele Stemele, Pete Smith, Dave Mccallum and Chase Morison with Jared Stanford and Jonathan Stanford boulstering the pack.
Jason Germishuys ended up receiving the man of the match award after his great skillful runs.
A few cold beers were enjoyed by both teams after the game, I would like to thank all Old Boys from Selborne and Dale for making this a stupendous occasion. There is talk about not only making this a tradition but bringing back the infamous Catfish one day.
