The History Of Rugby At College

Founded in 1863, College played its first rugby match in 1870, against Hermannsburg. Playing under Winchester rules, College won by two goals to nil and rugby quickly became the game of choice at College. Apart from a short period of time in the 1880s and 1890s, when soccer enjoyed a considerable following, it has remained the most popular winter sport at College.

In the 1920s and 1930s College rugby took a downturn in terms of both popularity and results. This was soon rectified after the Second World War when, under the guidance of the legendary Skonk Nicholson, College re-established itself as the premier rugby school in Natal.

Today the school fields up to 25 teams and participates in the foremost rugby festivals in the country. Five overseas tours have been undertaken, most recently to New Zealand in 2007.
The following College Old Boys have played international rugby:

For South Africa: EH Shum (1912-13), Wally Clarkson (1921-24), Bill Payn (1924),
BE Vanderplank (1924), Philip Nel (1928-37), George van Reenen (1937),
Keith Oxlee (1960-65), Ormond Taylor (1962), Andy van der Watt (1969-71),
Joel Stransky (1993-96), Jeremy Thomson (1996), Pieter Dixon (2000),
Butch James (2001-08), Peter Grant (2007-08), Jessie Kriel (2015)
For England: Hubert Freakes (1938-39), Geoff Appleford (2002), Don Armand (2018)
For Zimbabwe: Brenton Catterall (1991)
For United States: Juan Grobler (1997-01), Chad Erskine (2005-07)
For Italy: Wim Visser (1999-2002)
For Germany: Frank Goedeke (1996-98), Marcel Coetzee (2009)
For Cyprus: Andrew Binikos (2009)

The History Of Hockey At College

Hockey has only had official sport status at Maritzburg College since 1974. Since then the game has grown in stature with College having had the honour of having been the first school in South Africa to lay an artificial surface on its premises and at the end of 2018 the astroturf was resurfaced.

Since 1951, College has had 34 Old Boys picked to play for South Africa, more International players than any school in the world, including 3 captains. In April 2018, Tyson Dlungwana, Siya Nolutshungu and Tevin Kok represented South Africa at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and later in the year Taine Paton, Tyson Dlungwana, Tommy Hammond and Peabo Lembethe, who earned his first cap, represented South Africa at the World Cup in India.

The school has now produced 100 SA Schools Caps in its history with 91 of these having been earned since 1980. Last year, there were five 1st XI players who were selected for the SA Schools U18 team who played against Australia in a 3 match series, namely; J Campbell, M Maphumulo, A Walstroom, A Bradford and S Ngcongo. Two boys were named in the SA U17 High Performance Squad and Four boys were selected for the SA U16 High Performance Camp. M Maphumulo and J Campbell enjoyed an exciting opportunity last year when they travelled to Algiers and represented the SA Hockey 5s team in at the Youth African Games where they won gold.

Our opponent today is Glenwood High School. The long rivalry between the two schools 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. This practice has lapsed with every one of our opponents in KwaZulu-Natal, except Glenwood. There have been occasions when, for various reasons, only one game was played in a season, but the two schools have reverted to meeting on the rugby field for two matches a season. Glenwood, together with Westville, are the only schools in the province that can provide matches for all our teams, and this makes a Saturday’s rugby match against them a particularly eagerly-awaited prospect. Over many years, College has had the better of the First XV exchanges, and this is reflected in the statistics below but College has lost 16 of the last 20 encounters. Glenwood has clearly become the dominant rugby force in the province. Despite this, College boys are very difficult to subdue on Goldstones and we look forward to a close and tense encounter.

Before today’s match, the following is the record between the First XVs:

Played:    169

College won:    109

Hockey

Hockey has only had official sport status at Maritzburg College since 1974. Prior to 1974 the school did however manage to produce some 10 Springboks! Since 1974 the game has grown in stature with College being the first school in South Africa to lay an artificial surface on its premises, and now become one of the leading hockey schools in the country.

Since 1951, College has had 34 Old Boys picked to play for South Africa, more International players than any school in the world, including 3 captains. In April 2018, Tyson Dlungwana, Siya Nolutshungu and Tevin Kok represented South Africa at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and later in the year Taine Paton, Tyson Dlungwana, Tommy Hammond and Peabo Lembethe, who earned his first cap, represented South Africa at the World Cup in India. The SA Men’s Team to compete in the African Road to Tokyo Event, which will be held in August, was recently announced and 5 OC’s were named in the team; T Dlungwana, T Kok, N Lembethe, S Nolutshungu and T Paton.

The school has now produced 103 SA Schools Caps in its history with 94 of these having been earned since 1980. At the conclusion of the National U18 IPT in June, G Pio, S Ngcongo and M Maphumulo (OC 2018) were selected for the SA U18A team. T Prinsloo was selected for the SA U18B team and D van Niekerk was selected for the SA U17 Team.  Two boys were selected for the SA U16 High Performance Camp; C Osborne and A Mthalane.

We welcome all the spectators to College today, and in particular those Old Boys present, and hope that it is an exciting and enjoyable day with quality hockey on display.

The history between College and Glenwood dates back to 1975 and since then 57 matches have been played, College have won 46 of these matches, Glenwood have won 8 and 3 have ended in a draw. In the last 5 years College have not lost to Glenwood, the draw in April this year being the only result not going College’s way. The double-header, which we have had with Glenwood for many years, creates much excitement and we are certain that today will be a tightly contested match.

Today marks the final match for the red, black and white for many of our boys who are in matric. We thank them for their contribution to hockey at Maritzburg College during the past five years.

Maritzburg College and Pretoria Boys’ High first played each other in 1950, when College went on a short, two-match tour to the Transvaal, as it was then known. College won that first encounter 6-0. Thereafter, the two schools met infrequently until the 1980s, during which they played six matches. This more regular contact continued into the 1990s, and since 1999 we have played against each other every year. This has recently become a ‘home and away’ arrangement and College certainly prizes these matches against PBHS. We are schools with similar values, similar attitudes and similar strengths on the sports field. Each year our rugby teams play nearly thirty matches against PBHS, and most of them are hard-fought, close encounters. The biggest College victory was 57-8 in 2002, and our visitors’ largest win was 41-15 in 2009. Since 2008 there have been 21 1st XV encounters. College has won 13 of these, PBHS, 8 and the average score is 24-19 to College.

No other school in our programme is as close to us in overall rugby strength. Today is likely to provide another immensely pleasing day’s rugby. We welcome our special friends from Pretoria.

The double-header each year creates much excitement and many friendships and bonds have been established through the hosting of each other. The history between College and PBHS dates back to 1974 and they are one of our oldest rivals. Since then, 69 matches have been played, College have won 38 of these matches, PBHS have won 12 and 19 have ended in a draw. In the last 5 years College have won 6, PBHS have won 1 and there have been 5 draws, with the last 3 encounters all ending in draws, showing just how close the competition is between these two great hockey schools.

Rugby

Founded in 1863, College played its first rugby match in 1870, against Hermannsburg. The game was played under Winchester rules, and College won by two goals to nil. Rugby quickly became the game of choice at College, and apart from a short period of time in the 1880s and 1890s when soccer enjoyed a considerable following, it remained the most popular winter sport at College.

In the 1920s and 1930s College rugby took a downturn in terms of both popularity and results. This was soon rectified after the Second World War when, under the guidance of the legendary Skonk Nicholson, College re-established itself as the premier rugby school in Natal.

Today the school fields up to 29 teams and participates in the foremost rugby festivals in the country. Five overseas rugby tours have been undertaken, the most recent to New Zealand in 2007.

The following College Old Boys have played international rugby:

For South Africa: EH Shum (1912-13), Wally Clarkson (1921-24), Bill Payn (1924),

BE Vanderplank (1924), Philip Nel (1928-37), George van Reenen (1937),

Keith Oxlee (1960-65), Ormond Taylor (1962), Andy van der Watt (1969-71),

Joel Stransky (1993-96), Jeremy Thomson (1996), Pieter Dixon (2000),

Butch James (2001-08), Peter Grant (2007-08), Jessie Kriel (2015)

For England: Hubert Freakes (1938-39), Geoff Appleford (2002), Don Armand (2018)

For Zimbabwe: Brenton Catterall (1991)

For United States: Juan Grobler (1997-01), Chad Erskine (2005-07)

For Italy: Wim Visser (1999-2002)

For Germany: Frank Goedeke (1996-98), Marcel Coetzee (2009)

For Cyprus: Andrew Binikos (2009)

For Spain:       Andrew Norton (2019

Our visitors today are Michaelhouse. College and Michaelhouse first met in 1901, although the result of that match has proved elusive to find.

For many years, Michaelhouse, Hilton and later, DHS were College’s only school opponents. The remainder of our fixtures were against clubs and military regiments. Only from the 1930’s did other schools start to appear on our fixture list and the Michaelhouse fixture was then, and remains, an important date on our school calendar. For nearly seventy years College and Michaelhouse met on a home and away basis every year, until 1971, when the growing number of schools made it difficult to maintain this arrangement. Since then, one match a year has become the norm.

A few interesting statistics over the past ten years indicate that there is very little to choose between the two sides:

College shades Michaelhouse 6-4 in terms of victories and the average score is 25-22 to College. The biggest margin of victory for College was 4021 in 2011. Michaelhouse beat College 348 in 2015. A very fierce tussle is anticipated on Goldstone’s this afternoon.

Before today’s match, results between Michaelhouse and College at First XV level are:

Hockey

Hockey has only had official sport status at Maritzburg College since 1974. Since then the game has grown in stature with College having had the honour of having been the first school in South Africa to lay an artificial surface on its premises and at the end of 2018 the astroturf was resurfaced.

Since 1951, College has had 34 Old Boys picked to play for South Africa, more International players than any school in the world, including 3 captains. In April 2018, Tyson Dlungwana, Siya Nolutshungu and Tevin Kok represented South Africa at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and later in the year Taine Paton, Tyson Dlungwana, Tommy Hammond and Peabo Lembethe, who earned his first cap, represented South Africa at the World Cup in India. Lembethe, Kok, Dlungwana and Nolutshungu are currently in Odisha, India, playing for South Africa in the FIH Series Finals.

The school has now produced 100 SA Schools Caps in its history with 91 of these having been earned since 1980. Last year, there were five 1st XI players who were selected for the SA Schools U18 team who played against Australia in a 3 match series, namely; J Campbell, M Maphumulo, A Walstroom, A Bradford and S Ngcongo. Two boys were named in the SA U17 High Performance Squad and Four boys were selected for the SA U16 High Performance Camp. M Maphumulo and J Campbell enjoyed an exciting opportunity last year when they travelled to Algiers and represented the SA Hockey 5s team in the Youth African Games where they won gold.  

The history between College and Michaelhouse dates back to 19774 and they are one of our oldest rivals. Since then, 75 matches have been played, College have won 44 of these matches, Michaelhouse have won 15 and 16 have ended in a draw. College have been victorious in the last 5 fixtures between the two 1st teams, and last year College won 7 – 5. We are hoping for another exciting game this year on Papes.

We welcome the Michaelhouse community to Maritzburg College and hope that the matches are played in a competitive spirit that entertain the crowds.

The rugby history between College and Westville is relatively short. The two schools officially only started playing each other at first team level in 1987, with College the victors by 31-15. Westville started emerging as a rugby powerhouse in the province after 2000, and they beat College for the first time in 2004 with a score of 10-6. In 2013 College suffered its biggest defeat to Westville by 50 points to 10. Since then the encounter has become a ding-dong affair with games drawn in 2008, 2010 and 2014. In fact, over the last 10 years there are have been 11 encounters, College has won five times, there have been two draws and Westville has won four games The average score is 21-17 to College.

The Westville fixture is treasured not only because there is nothing to choose between the two 1st XVs, but because the schools match each other down the line.

We welcome the Westville community to Maritzburg College and hope they enjoy the day in the Capital.

Rugby

College and DHS met on the rugby field for the first time in 1910 and over the years two schools very similar in character and size battled it out on the sports field. College won the first encounter by 5 points to 0. The first double-header was played in 1913 and this continued for the most part until 2005. The rivalry between the two schools is well documented, and there have been a number of epic encounters over time. The mind-set existed that it was nigh impossible to win on the double, no matter how convincing a home victory might be. This sentiment was held by every team in all the age groups. The longest winning streak for DHS was between 1937 and 1941, when the “Horseflys” won eight games on the trot.  The longest winning period for College was from 1981 to 1989 when College won 15 games in a row. Both schools recently celebrated their 150th anniversaries. In 2013 College won 38-11 on Goldstone’s and in 2016, in a very close encounter in Durban, College held on to win 26-19 against a very good DHS side. College lost last year to DHS by 30-45.

The late Skonk Nicholson, as all know, had a close affiliation with both schools. This year, for the ninth time the 1st XVs do battle for the Skonk Nicholson Cup, a trophy kindly and generously donated by DHS.

Hockey

The history between College and DHS dates back to 1974 and the two first teams have played 44 matches since then. College have won 36 of these matches, DHS have won 3 and 5 have ended in a draw. The biggest margin of victory by DHS over College is 3-1 and College’s biggest margin of victory was in 2017 and was 13-0.

Today we pay tribute to Sihle “Congo” Ngcongo, our 1st XI goalkeeper, who today earns his 60th cap for the 1st XI. He has been the first choice goalkeeper since his Grade 10 year when he was U16. Last year, as an U17 player, he represented the KZN Inland U18A team who reached the final and he was then selected to represent the SA U18 team who played in a thrilling 3 match series against Australia. Sihle showed his class whilst making some unbelievable saves in these matches. He has been an asset to the 1st XI over the past 3 years

Rugby

In 2012 College renewed rugby ties with Northwood for the first time since 2004. The first encounter took place in 1956 when Northlands, a then recently established co-ed school, had been created to serve the needs of a growing Durban population. At the end of 1989 Northlands amalgamated with Beachwood to create Northwood.  College has never lost to Northwood, but some of the results have been close. In 1988 the unbeaten College side trailed Northlands until late in the game, and College escaped with a late penalty. Three matches between the schools have been drawn. There has been a revival of rugby at Northwood, and we are thrilled to welcome our friends from Durban North back to Goldstone’s. Last year, at Northwood, under lights, in a war of attrition, College ran out 10-6 winners.  

Played 45, College won  42, Matches drawn 3

The first match between College and Northwood was played in 1998 and today will only be the 19th time the two first teams have met. College have never lost to Northwood, winning 16 of the matches and the last 2 encounters have ended in a draw.

We are looking forward to opening the newly resurfaced astro turf today as we take on Northwood for our first fixture of the 2019 Hockey season.
