The perfect Super 14 curtain raiser takes place in Paarl this Saturday when Bishops travel to Paarl to take on Paarl Gymnasium. There’s very little in it when it comes to their respective seasons as both teams having tasted success more often than not.
Not only are they playing for the pride of their schools but there’s also the almost unspoken mention that Bishops could top Paarl Gym on the Top 20 ranking should they win. Bishops, currently ranked 3rd, are hot on the heels of Paarl Gym, ranked 2nd. With both teams welcoming players back from injury and WP trials, both teams should be at near full strength.
With Paarl Gym being solid on defense and Bishops being full of running, it will definitely be a game not to be missed.
