Christchurch Boys' High's dominance over Christ's College has continued with a 28-3 victory in the annual rugby interschool at Upper today.

Boys' High took a 14-3 lead into halftime and put the result beyond doubt when fullback Hayden Webber and centre Faletui Samuelu scored tries midway through the second half within the space of four minutes.

FACE-OFF: The rivalry between Christ's College and Christchurch Boys' High School in their annual rugby match is a proud tradition for both schools.

4pm: Full time. Sir Graham says he enjoyed himself. "It has always been a big fixture. There's a huge amount of tradition involved," he says.

"It was a disappointing game in some respects, because the skill levels were not quite up to scratch. I think the guys get nervous and a bit over-awed by the occasion sometimes."

3.47pm: Teachers and security staff start moving CBHS spectators out early, before the final whistle.

3.20pm: North Canterbury man Michael Gould, 67, is in the stands near Sir Graham Henry. Gould was part of the Christ's College squad in 1964, that lost to CBHS. Gould says he and other team members have bumped into Sir Henry over the years: "He always says, 'Hello', whether he remembers us or not. He was a forward. I was a back. He wasn't very important in those days."

3.12pm CBHS students storm the field and Christ's students follow suit. Security staff force them back. Second half kicks off.

3.09pm: Half time. CBHS leads 14-3.

2.53pm: CBHS try and conversion to take them 14-3 up. Sir Graham Henry is reportedly in the crowd. It is the 50-year anniversary of the CBHS team of 1964 - undefeated in all 18 games, which Sir Henry played in.

2.46pm: First try of the match goes to CBHS, plus conversion. 7-3.

2.30pm: Kick off! The stands are packed and the sun is shining. CBHS supporters chant: "Blue/black. Blue/black."

2.26pm: American tourist Makenzie Read, 21, and her two friends "stumbled upon" the game. "It's exciting," she says.

Both teams line up to sing God Defend New Zealand.

2.09pm: Students from Rangi Ruru Girls' School arrive at the game.

When The Press asks two friends who they're supporting, loyalties are divided. "College!" says one. "Boys'!" says the other.
