Grey High has a proud history in South African rugby producing 15 Springboks that represented their country at international level. It is to be noted that two of these players matriculated elsewhere, Ian Kirkpatrick at Kimberley Boys High and current Springbok centre Jan Serfontein, spend his formative years in Grey Primary and Grey High up to Grade 9 before matriculating at Grey College Bloemfontein.

Grey has a proud rugby tradition and record which dates back to the 19th century. Traditional schools they compete against, on an annual basis, are Dale College, Graeme College, Grey College, Queen’s College, Selborne College, St. Andrew’s College, Wynberg High and of late Paul Roos Gymnasium.

The first rugby match was played on the 16 September 1893 against Muir College of Uitenhage. During the years 1919 to 1923 Grey played four internationals against Dale, Gill, Kingswood and St Andrew’s. Money for the main field was donated by an Old Grey, Arthur Phillip in 1938 and thus the main field is “The Phillip Field”.

Well known television commentators and outstanding players, like Gavin Cowley and Andrew Patterson also graced the Phillip field.
