Rugby at Outeniqua
Outeniqua have a proud rugby tradition and is perennially found in the top 20 ranks of SA Schools, more often than not in the Top 10. To date they have produced four Springboks in Faan Conradie (1965) Johan Heunis (1981-1989), Marco Wentzel (2002), Warrick Gelant (2017) and their current and latest player, Armand (Akker) van Der Merwe who made his debut against Engeland in 2018.
The school also hosts an annual u/14 festival over the Easter holidays which is highly regarded and the top tournament for the age group in the country. Schools like Paul Roos, Paarl Gim, Paarl Boys, Waterkloof, Monnas, Affies, Grey College and Glenwood all send their youngsters to George during Easter to compete against the best.
