World Schools Festival Fixture confirmed in Paarl - 3-7 April

Paarl Boys' High will face Christchurch Boys' High in the main match of the final day of the World Schools Festival in Paarl. The festival, which forms part of Paarl Boys' 150th-anniversary celebrations, will take place from 3-7 April. Paarl Boys' 43-match winning streak ended when they lost 38-36 to Christchurch Boys' during their tour of New Zealand early last year.

Giving it a truly international flavour, 10 teams from five continents featuring sides from New Zealand, England, Italy, the United States, Australia, Namibia and Argentina will make their appearance at the festival.
