The Saturday saw two hockey sides and most rugby teams take to the field. Dale dominated all u14 and u15 fixtures winning all games in the junior age groups. The u16B team worked hard for their win with the u16A going down to Stirling. All the Open sides registered convincing wins with the 1st team winning 60-12, 2nds winning 53-0 and 3rds winning 35-0. The first team match was a very exciting affair with Dale scoring tries at will.

Well done boys! lets keep up the good work.
Dale praised following Kearsney Festival
The Dale 1st team rugby side were praised for their excellent behaviour and sportsmanship by Kearsney teacher. Mr Andre van Zyl sent this email to the school
''Dear Mr Eddy
I have been involved in the Kearsney Easter festival as a staff member for 9 years and I just want to say how impressed I was once again with the touring Dale party at the Kearsney Easter festival. Not only did they play a special brand of rugby, but their manners and bearing both on and off the field was commendable. The coaching staff are special men and you could see that the discipline and focus of the team stemmed from the great relationship between the boys and the staff. It is an absolute pleasure having teams of this calibre at this festival.
Have a good day.''
This email makes us as Dale College extremely proud! This is one of our main objectives at the school, to produce well mannered and disciplined gentlemen. Well done to the 1st team rugby players and all Coaches involved!.
