Top 20 - 15 May 2019
OPINION: We thought that, after the upheaval of Wildeklawer, we should be on an even keel this week.
It has not been the case in another week of surprises.
Those who have benefitted most from this week’s changes are above all Waterkloof, Bishops and Diamantveld.
We have tried to reward those who have won well and also those who have played above those who did not play.
Others who have moved up the ranking are Garsfontein, KES, Rondebosch, Grey PE and Outeniqua.
Those who have taken a tumble are Affies, Boland Landbou, Stellenberg, Noord-Kaap and Drostdy.
We have left the top five as they were.
Those who watched the match between No.1, Grey Bloem, and No.4, Paarl Boys’ High, would have seen what looked like an even contest but for Grey’s ability to make the most of opportunities. Boys’ High were not disgraced.
