Schools Top 20 - July 26

Large schools top 20

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Again it is time for a Top 20 - it's a tough place to get to and a tough place to stay in - unless you come from Paarl it seems.

The new term has started and there are still some schools playing rugby in South Africa, especially in the south.

We shall continue our principle of rewarding those who are playing. Slipping down if not playing is not a punishment but could be a reward for those who played and did well. This has affected particularly Grey Bloem and Monument.

Some schools, such as DHS and Kearsney have stopped playing and so will drop out of the pressure group. The surprise results are Jeppe's defeat and, less so, HTS Middelburg's victory.
