 Maritzburg College vs Glenwood High School Historic Overview

Date: 24 March Kick-off: 14h00 Channel: SS 8

 

Premier Interschools 2018 kicks off this Saturday, when a 97-year-old rivalry continues with Maritzburg College taking on their big rivals from KZN Glenwood High.

The first match between the two schools was played in 1921 at Glenwood, which Glenwood won 5-0. In the Maritzburg College Reunion encounter in June 2010, Maritzburg College beat Glenwood at Goldstones. This is the first time that College had beaten Glenwood since 2006.

The biggest victory for Maritzburg over Glenwood was 61-13 at Maritzburg in 1995, while the biggest victory for Glenwood over Maritzburg was 57-12 at Kings Park in 2015. Maritzburg writes about the fixture as a long rivalry between the two schools that started in 1921, making Glenwood one of our oldest and most respected rivals. At that stage, the normal practice was to play opponents twice each season, home and away. Glenwood, together with Westville, are the only schools in the province that can provide matches for all Maritzburg’s teams, which makes this encounter an eagerly-awaited prospect.

Over many years Maritzburg has had the better of exchanges at First XV level and this is reflected in the statistics below. However, Glenwood’s rugby has improved dramatically in recent years and have had most of victories over the last 15 years

As can be seen by the last 10 games played, Glenwood is dominating the scoreboard with wins while the best Maritzburg College could do was two draws in 2012.

Early season form looks to favor Glenwood once again, but form alone is not always the key to winning such fierce derbies. Passion and willpower sometimes get surprising results.
