Bosmansdam High School recently played host to Edgemead High in their annual Rugby Derby Day that has become a much anticipated event. It was a lovely day of good, hard derby action. Bosmansdam’s u/14 and u/15 teams narrowly lost, but the u/16 and u/19B teams scored impressive victories of 31-14 and 31-7 respectively.
The highlight of the day was the 1st XV match that ebbed and flowed and really entertained the large crowd that was present. It could have gone either way, but on the balance of the day, the Bosmansdam Knights emerged the victors with a final score of 14-7.
