Grey College, Paul Roos and Glenwood have contributed the bulk of the Wildeklawer North and South squads that will face off on 15 September.
The two sides, picked after this year’s Wildeklawer schools tournament, will face each other at Ellis Park as a curtain-raiser to the Currie Cup match between the Golden Lions and Western Province.
The North team will be coached by Welkom’s Jacques Juries and features a total of eight Grey College boys, as well as four players from the Virseker Cup-winning Monument, in the 23-man squad.
Standout names in the squad include Wyclef Vlitoor, Tristan Dullisear and De Wet Marais, who all played for the SA Schools team in the recent U18 International series.
The South team, coached by outgoing Paarl Boys’ High coach Sean Erasmus, contains eight Glenwood players while the Boland schools of Boishaai, Paul Roos and Paarl Gymnasium make up most of the rest of the squad.
