With Bloemfontein being the capital of hockey this year, having hosted the SASHOC u18-tournament and Fairtree Super 12-tournament, it will be hosting another massive clash this Friday between Grey College and Paul Roos Gimnasium

Be sure to catch the action on SuperSport Schools (

Thus far, Paul Roos has proven themselves a formidable team, ten players who represented Boland u18A during the SASHOC-tournament.

The ten players are Aon Hendricks, Barend Geldenhuys, Beor van Reenen, Jake Downie, Joshua Smit, Keith Siebrits, Paul Roos, Rueben Sendzul, Ryan Williams and Zeke Hougaard

Hougaard was also awarded the Midfielder of the Tournament at the Cape Town International Hockey Tournament earlier this year. He also made the nationals schools side after the conclusion of the SASHOC-tournament.  

Grey College’s captain, Roan Janse van Rensburg, is their key player in tonight’s clash. Janse van Rensburg has been the leading goal scorer for his team during the season. He helped Grey to finish as runners-up during the Gushkie Top Schools-tournament thet hosted last week.

Janse van Rensburg won Striker of the Tournament, with the Best Goalkeeper award going Grey’s to Eben Joubert. It was quite a surprise that van Rensburg was not included in the SA Schools-side.

The magnitude of this historic interschool is alluded to by the 70 sports teams that will be travelling from Stellenbosch, the first time since 2018 and the pandemic struck.

Their first meeting dating back to 1967.
