The Under-18 Craven Week and the Under-18 Academy Week both start at St Stithians College in Randburg this week.

By Paul Dobson, Moonsport

The teams are divided into two groups, playing on alternative days. The group that starts on Monday, plays its next matches on Wednesday and Saturday. Tuesday's group plays its next two rounds on Thursday and Saturday.

The fixtures for Rounds 2 and 3 depend on what went on in the round before in an effort to match strength against strength.

The match officials have been appointed to the first two days.

Mpho Matsaung has the honour of blowing the whistle to start the 54th Craven Week while Christopher Allison will get the Academy Week going.

Aimee Barrett-Theron is the first woman to be appointed to referee at Craven Week. She has her first match to referee on the Tuesday.
