Rugby & Hockey vs Kearsney College

What a great day of Sport! Thank you to Kearsney College for hosting Durban High School on Saturday 19 March, it was a remarkable day of Schoolboy Sport.  We are very proud of the behaviour and support displayed by our boys and the following comments received reaffirm this:

“Always a pleasure to host boys and staff of DHS on Botha’s Hill. Thanks for making it such a great celebration of schoolboy sport.”

“I was so impressed with the DHS boys and their manners. Well done! (Kearsney Parent myself) What a day out for all. Your boys gave it all both on the field and in the stands to make it a celebration and treat as a spectator….”

“As a Kearsney parent I was very impressed with the manners and sportsmanship displayed by the DHS boys. Both first team matches were wonderful spectacles and could have gone either way. Thanks for making the day so enjoyable.”

Unfortunately, our 1st XV Rugby and 1st XI Hockey teams went down narrowly to Kearsney in two absolutely nail-biter games. The 1st XV score was 20-24 and the 1st XI lost 4-3. However, we are proud of all the teams for both codes for their performances on the day.
