Schools Top 20 - August 16
In fact, the absence of players can happen throughout the season for a variety of reasons – injury, flu, family commitments and punishment. And so we have to ignore excuses and treat each match as just that – a match between two schools and continue with our policy of rewarding schools that play.
Those particularly affected would be Grey PE, Grey Bloem and Paul Roos.
