Schools Top 20 - April 18
SCHOOLS RANKINGS: This is the first Schools Top 20 we have done in 2018 and let us just say that we do not regard this as absolute or accurate.
We sift through carefully presented information and do our best to do it as accurately as possible, in the full knowledge that is not absolute truth, but a way of honouring outstanding efforts of the top rugby schools amongst the hundreds of rugby schools in South Africa.
As it has been for the past 19 years, three of us sat and took our first tentative steps in working out a Top 20 of 1st XVs in South Africa.
It is not going to stay like this until the end of August but will change every week until then.
