Despite fielding a young side, Hawston Secondary captain Roland Swarts is confident that his team will be able to repeat their 2010 heroics against Hermanus this Saturday when the two schools meet in their annual FNB Classic Clash.
The 18-year-old is one of four survivors from the team that took a dramatic late win over local rivals Hermanus last year - the victory serving to break a 16-game losing streak in this fixture.
Swarts, however, is confident that his young side, which has three 15-year-olds, has the tenacity to overcome their relative lack of experience and retain the bragging rights over Hermanus.
"We had our training camp last weekend and the team spirit is high.
"Even though we are building for the future, I feel that the side we have is capable of beating Hermanus on Saturday," Swarts told classicclashes.co.za.
Swarts though is no stranger to this fixture.
He was the vice-captain of the Hawston side last year and scored the opening try in what was arguably his most memorable game to date. The inside centre admits, however, that after last year's result that there was a lot pressure on him and his side to produce a win in the clash.
"The village is buzzing with excitement ahead of the game and everyone is expecting us to repeat what we did last year. So yes, in that respect I am feeling the pressure," the Grade 11 pupil said.
Swarts does feel though that he can draw on inspiration from his rugby hero, Sharks and Springbok inside back Patrick Lambie, and not let his side's relative youthfulness stop them from claiming what would be another landmark victory in this fixture.
He said: "Patrick Lambie is young and still has a lot to learn but that hasn't stopped him playing at the highest levels of rugby.
"I admire that," added Roland.
Lambie though is not Roland Swarts's only inspiration. Swarts has inherited his father's love for the game and has even followed in his father's footsteps who played at centre.
Rugby, it would seem, flows in Swarts's blood!
