Schools Top 20 - April 28
After some intense rugby over the long weekend, there have been changes to the Top 20 with the feeling that these changes are not the last for this year.
There were Top 20 schools which did not play – Paul Roos who are in Japan, Nelspruit and Dale as well as those on the fringe – Drostdy, Grey PE, Kempton Park, Kingswood and Potchefstroom Gimnasium.
Probably the biggest surprise of the week has been the Monnas' defeat of Grey College, such a rare occurrence.
