Maritzburg College vs Afrikaans Höer Seunskool (Affies)

Saturday 29th July sees the 8th edition of Premier Interschools for 2017 move up to Pretoria where Afrikaans Hoër Seunskool (Affies) hosts Maritzburg College for their annual derby.

The yearly fixture started in 1996 and since then they have played twenty two games of which Affies has won nineteen and only three wins by College. The visitors will have to dig deep again this year if they want to overcome the Affies juggernaut as the local team is packed with provincial players with eight players representing the Blue Bulls at Craven Week and another five players at the Academy week.

College themselves had three players representing the KZN Sharks at the final of the Craven Week in 2017.
