Klein Nederburg and New Orleans meet in an FNB Classic Clash at the Faure Street Stadium, packing the ground for the second successive week with an Interschools match. There will be vast enthusiasm again.
The two sides will play with their usual flare and enthusiasm. New Orleans may well be the favourites but Klein Nederburg have just won four times in a row. New Orleans have enjoyed victories over Schoonspruit, Swartland, Labori and Hawston amongst others. Klein Nederburg also beat Hawston and drew with Charlie Hofmeyr but struggled against DF Malan, De Kuilen and Hugenote.
The two teams know each other well. Not only are they both from Paarl, but twice this year they combined to form an FNB Invitation XV, at the St John's Festival in Johannesburg and the Swartland Festival in Malmesbury.
