The trials saw 22 players named for this year’s edition of the Under-18 Coca-Cola Craven Week which will be held in Polokwane, South Africa, from July 7-13.

Falcon College resumes their campaign with a tricky encounter against Peterhouse College in what seems to be an uphill task for the Esigodini-based schools rugby powerhouse.

Christian Brothers’ College will be out to redeem themselves following their 63-10 drubbing at the hands of St George’s College in their opening match when they travel to take on Prince Edward at Jubilee Field.

Petra will be out to collect maximum points when they take on Gateway after the Bulawayo side suffered a 12-3 loss in their opening match at home to Harare side Eaglesvale.

Harare rugby schools giants St John’s College and St George’s College will be looking to continue with their unbeaten runs in the league to keep their title aspirations alive.

St John’s will host Churchill while St George’s travel to Kyle College in what is expected to be an easy assignment.

In other games set for tomorrow, two promising schools, Midlands Christian College and Eaglesvale, clash in Gweru while Hellenic Academy will have a date against Hillcrest College.

The Lomagundi and Watershed match will conclude this weekend’s league matches.
