The cricket season for 2017 has resumed after a lengthy break whilst many of the schools were consumed with rugby, however already several teams have engaged in quite a few matches.

The first year of high school rugby is over for this year’s U14’s and what a great season it has been with many schools hoping their juniors can continue to show this kind of form in the years to come.

It has been a very tough season amongst the U15 teams and no other rankings has generated as much conjecture which can be put down to how closely the top teams are.

Dale College put together a mighty performance in their match against old rivals Queen’s College winning by over 50 points to cap off a season that could have been a whole lot better if not for a few banana skins along the way.

Voortrekker Bethlehem left their best match for last when they held the hockey powerhouse Oranje Meisies to a goalless draw last week.

Log leaders Rondebosch, perhaps feeling the effects of a long season battled to gain the ascendancy over Bishops last week and were forced to accept their second defeat of the season both courtesy of their neighbours Bishops.

As the dust settles on the 2017 season we take a moment to reflect on some of the mighty performances that took place this year and salute the boys and coaches who delivered a smorgasbord of high class rugby during the year.

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.
