Wynberg Boys' High School: Old Boys' Interhouse Touch RugbyFriday 29 August 2014 sees the introduction of Old Boys’ Interhouse Touch Rugby as part of Wynberg’s Annual Founders’ Week: the Festival-styled event takes place on our fields, on the eve of the Schools’ traditional rugby season finale: Wynberg vs SACS (away at SACS on 30 August).

Wynberg’s traditional “Founders’ Week” begins a little earlier this year with Founders’ Day scheduled for Friday 22 August as the start of a bumper 9 days of Old Boys’ Class Reunions, School vs Old Boys’ activities, music, cultural and sporting activities.

The Old Boys’ Interhouse Touch Rugby Format:

Seniors’ competition comprising 5 house teams (Van Riebeeck, De Waal, Rhodes, Wellington & Littlewood), for Old Boys matriculated prior to 2003.
Juniors’ competition comprising 8 house teams (Van Riebeeck, De Waal, Rhodes, Wellington, Littlewood, De Villiers, Lorie & McNaughton) for Old Boys matriculated 2003 to 2013.
Matches will be 15 minutes one way.
The tournament will be on a 6-down touch basis.
The squad can have 10 players, however, there will be seven players on the field at one time.
If there is no result in the play-off matches after the full time whistle, after every minute thereafter one player from each team falls away until someone scores i.e. a drop off.
The matches will be played on a half-field rugby field.
