They enjoyed a winning spree, beating all the teams in their pool. They played three games and won all 3: 50-2 against Lawson Brown, 21-12 against DSG – which was not an easy game as DSG was leading for a while in the 1st quarter – and 36-18 against Nombulelo.

They remain favourites of the tournament since its inception in 2016. The Kingswood College 2nd team in pool B won 14-8 against Lawson Brown and lost 8-18 against DSG.
