The 2017 season comes to an end this weekend but there some big matches planned for this weekend. 

Since the last publishing of the rankings some several week’s back there has been some notable movement that has taken place on the U14 Top 100 Rankings which sees Grey College in pole position at this late stage of the season.

Outeniqua who have led perhaps the most closely contested age group in the rankings for the entire season needed to beat Paarl Gim in order to remain at the top of the U15 Belgotex Top 100 Rankings.

The holder of the No.1 position on the U16 Belgotex Rankings was always going to come down to who won the season decider between Paul Roos Gym and Grey College.

Maritzburg College lost out on an opportunity to close the gap on Rondebosch and try one last attempt at snatching the No.1 position in the country when their match against KES was cancelled.

It has been a long season for the leaders of this week’s Belgotex Top 80 Rankings, Oranje Meisies, a season which has seen them win virtually every tournament that was on offer and deservedly they will end up as the top team in 2017.

The penultimate Belgotex First XV Top 100 Rankings sees little change after this weekend’s matches which still sees Boishaai at the top followed by Grey College and KES.

The 2017 season comes to an end this weekend but there some big matches planned for this weekend.

It was at U/9 level playing soccer for Grey College Bloemfontein that we went on tour to a school in JHB. It was on this tour that I got my first experience of Alexandra township in JHB and more importantly staying with a black family.

It is the one school rugby match that is perhaps getting more air time than any other that has been played this season and it doesn’t even feature one of the top First XV’s in the country.
