Paul Roos and Waterkloof will collide on Saturday in the pick of the festival fixtures at St John's.

Paul Roos will be looking to bounce back from their 27-26 loss to Grey PE when they face Waterkloof, ranked 10th in the country.

In another unmissable match, Paarl Boys' and Pretoria Boys' will meet in the last match of the final day at 4pm.

The St John's festival has hosted a number of overseas schools in the past, and this year, Scots College from Australia and St John's from Zimbabwe will be in attendance. The hosts will take on their Australian counterparts on day one, while the Zimbabweans will face a stern test in Paul Roos.

'The main focus for the St John's Easter Rugby Festival is to bring these schoolboys together,' St John's representative Adrian Norris told
