Monday 27 August 2018: The 2018 winter season finale played out like so many before - a gloriously miserable Cape winter’s day with plenty of wind, rain and mud - but, happily, with a triple crown for the 1st XV on SACS main field, their Memorial A.
Wynberg support was once again awe inspiring - 500 boys, immaculately turned out in full winter uniform, most of them armed with umbrellas in anticipation of the rain. Just before kick-off, the weather seemed to be taking a severe turn for the worse and Reza Grever came over to me on the SACS side of the field to ask if the boys could share the undercover seating on the new pavilion at SACS. Fortunately this move was not necessary, Wynberg Men are made of sterner stuff, as the heavy rain stayed away until the second half of the WP vs Cheetahs game when DSTV signals went off across the Southern Suburbs as all hell literally and figuratively broke loose.
Our boys merely had to withstand the bitterly cold North Wester that swept across the ground, but that did not take the heat out of a very clinical Wynberg display as they ran out 30-17 winners.
SACS tried everything, including tackling one of our cheerleaders, but their creativity on attack was not enough to end their tough season on a high note. The hockey on Friday night was equally heartwarming. Goals aplenty as Wynberg tore the heart out of a gutsy SACS outfit who led after dominating possession in the first chukka.
Wynberg turned on the heat for the next 45 minutes and were irrepressible in everything they did – except charm the opposition supporters and neutral observers. Goalmouth celebrations that revealed dance moves, hairy chests, and fake sniggering were disappointing and wholly unbecoming of Wynberg men. I will endeavour to ensure that this does not become the norm for any Wynberg sport. My embarrassment was further compounded by a moment of madness by a Wynberg parent climbing over a fence at the astro, doing some minimal damage to property in the process, before running across the astro arrogantly celebrating our victory. This is not our Wynberg Way. I exhort all parents, Old Boys, and supporters to lead our boys in exemplary behaviour, field-side and on social media.
Squash vs Old Boys - View Heritage Week photo collection on Flickr
Friday 24 August 2018: With the buzz of Heritage week all around, it is nevertheless fitting to report back on the week that was against Bishops.
Our squash boys had a dreadful time of it but Chris Cresswell won the match of his young life so far when he defeated SA number 5, Brandon Snider by 3 games to 1 to snatch the Super League number one match last Thursday.
The 1st hockey XI were beset by illness, call ups to higher honours and ill-discipline that saw them without their best team on the field for much of the match. They will be itching to put matters right vs SACS away on Friday evening.
The 1st XV are now on the verge of a Triple Crown (their first since 2014) and a win over SACS will see them register 5 from 6 in the Southern Suburbs. Lots of little nuances will play out on Saturday. SACS will be looking to break their duck in the Southern Suburbs this year and if Bishops beat Bosch, they will be either top of the Southern Suburbs for 2018 or level with Wynberg - depending on how things pan out under the mountain.

Friday 17 August 2018: A long weekend can either be perceived as a welcome respite from the gruelling competition of the season or as the cause of a loss of momentum. It is probably all psychological, but no doubt most if not all of our teams will have kept their eye firmly on the ball in terms of moving a step closer to a Triple crown, Grand Slam or Headmaster’s Grand Slam when friendship, rivalry and sportsmanship resume against Bishops this weekend.
For those a tad confused by this terminology, let me clarify: Beating the Southern Suburbs boys schools in Term 2 or 3 earns you a Triple Crown. Doing it in Term 2 and 3 earns you a Grand Slam. If you add into the mix a win over Grey High, then you can claim the Headmaster’s Grand Slam - the Holy Grail of Wynberg sport. With this in mind, I am sure that all parents will be reminding their sons of what is at stake as we enter the final stretch of the season with two All In weekends. Our 1st team water polo boys will be braving some icy conditions this weekend with warm up matches at Reddam Constantia: vs Silvertree 4ths at 13:00 vs RWC 2nds at 15:00 vs UCT 3rds at 16:00 Last weekend saw our cross country runners attempting a top 8 position at the WP trials at Fairmont. Despite none of our runners being able to achieve this goal, missing out on WP selection, well done to the following on their efforts:
Dylan Rudolph was alone in an incredibly competitive race, ultimately falling behind and ending the race in 12th position.
The U19 race had Caleb Gibson finishing 15th, running his 8km in a time of 30:48.
