Prop and flanker are latest South African schoolboys to go viral with epic try

South African schoolboy rugby is showing no signs of slowing down in its long tradition of producing beastly forwards, with the latest footage that has emerged this week.

SuperSport have shared a clip of a Graeme College 150th Rugby Festival match recently between Grey College and St Andrews, which shows a flanker and tighthead prop linking up perfectly after receiving a kick off.

While the flanker did a lot of the work, carrying the ball 50 metres up field, beating multiple players in the process, he was supported all the way by the prop, who went over for the try. That is not exactly the role of a tighthead on a pitch, but it was mightily impressive. This could be the latest in a long line of legendary tightheads that have come out of Grey College, which includes 2007 World Cup winner CJ van der Linde.

Take a look at the try:

Grey College has long been recognized as one of the top rugby schools in South Africa, with an impressive track record of producing elite players. Among the many former students who have gone on to represent the national team are van der Linde, Flip van der Merwe, Coenie Oosthuizen, and Ollie le Roux, all of whom are known for their imposing physical presence on the field. Versatile players like François Steyn, Ruben Kruger, Bismarck du Plessis, and Cobus Reinach, on the other hand, are known for their speed, skill, and accuracy. Morne du Plessis, a former student and captain of the national team, is widely regarded as one of the greatest rugby players of all time and is a member of the International Rugby Hall of Fame. Other notable Grey College alumni who have played for the Springboks include Johan Goosen, Heinrich Brüssow, Adriaan Strauss, and Ruan Pienaar, who has also played for Ulster. Collectively, these former Grey College students have made significant contributions to the rich history and legacy of South African rugby.
