Historic Overview of Grey 1st XV 1855-2016

(By Nelio de Sa)

All data below I have collected through the years, this is the only correct historic overview of Grey College/Kollege Bloemfontein.

I’m still updating & this overview will soon be completed, it is 100% accurate & will be completed since 1855.

One should take note that Grey College / Kollege played their first matches only against clubs, universities, army, etc. and not against schools with data I have captured until 1914, it could be much later that Grey only started playing against schools.
