Clifton all set for end of season ISRF-Fixtures

With what will be the curtain call on the 2019 rugby season for the schools competing, Clifton College have pulled out all the stops to put together a awesome end of season rugby bonanza in hosting the 2019 Independent Schools Rugby Festival from the 26 June – 1 July.



The picturesque Riverside sports complex will provide an awesome backdrop to what should be a intriguing couple of days of rugby. With many sides going for a round 2 of sorts,  it will be telling as to how some schools adjust to new combinations with the call ups to the various Craven and Academy week sides affecting selection.



Competing Schools:

KZN Schools Eastern Cape
Michaelhouse St Andrews College
St Charles College Kingswood College
Hilton College Gauteng
Clifton College St Davids Marist
Kearsney College Free State
South Coast Barbarians St Andrews School


The South Coast Barbarians are an invitational team made up of players from Kuswag, Amanzimtoti High and Kingsway High.




27 June Field
13 : 00 Michaelhouse Kingswood College A
14 : 15 St Charles College St Davids Marist A
15 : 30 St Andrews School South Coast Barbarians A
16 : 45 Hilton College St Andrews College A
18 : 00 Kearsney College Clifton College A


Good match ups here, especially the Hilton College vs St Andrews College game. The boys from the Eastern Cape are the only team to have beaten Hilton this year in a comprehensive 43-27 win at the Kingswood 125th rugby festival.

Both schools have their fair share of players in provincials sides so the depth of both schools will be tested. St Charles College have made steady progress this year as they take a step up in their rugby programme and against  St Davids they certainly look the favourites.

29 June Field
13 : 00 St Andrews College St Davids Marist A
14 : 15 Clifton College St Andrews School A
15 : 30 Kearsney College Kingswood College A

18 : 00 Hilton College St Charles College A


A rematch for Clifton College and St Andrews School. the boys from Durban prevailed in their fixture in the rarefied air of the free State earlier in the season, 24-13, so they should enter the fixture fully aware of what needs to be done. Kearsney College would look to avenge an early season loss to to Kingswood College.

Hilton College and St Charles College finally get to play their fixture after a postponement earlier in the season.


01 July Field
09 : 00 Hilton College St Davids Marist A
09 : 00 Kingswood College St Charles College B
10 : 15 St Andrews College Michaelhouse A
10 : 15 Kearsney College St Andrews School B
11 : 30 Clifton College South Coast Barbarians A


It all looks set for a great couple of days, so if you are in and around Durban head down to Riverside for some great games.
