With the season a match or two away from being over we have Paarl Boys High commanding the top spot on the Totalsports First XV Top 100 Rankings and it seems unlikely that any team will be able to topple them from that position.

All this week’s U14, U15, U16 & First XV Results:

Paarl Boys High enter into the top five of this week’s passionately followed U14 Rankings which sees a tussle at the top between Outeniqua and Glenwood for the No. 1 spot.

A virtually unchanged U15 Rankings for this week with Grey College still leading the way as they prepare to make their final defence of their unbeaten status against Glenwood this weekend.

Glenwood regain the top position on this week’s U16 Rankings after taking care of business against Maritzburg College but there is virtually nothing to choose between the front runners and there could still be a twist in the tail before time is called on season 2016.

In the biggest school match to surpass all matches, Boishaai proved once again why they are on top of the Totalsports First XV Top 100 Rankings when they hung on to beat their arch rivals Paarl Gim who threw everything they had at them in an attempt to be the only team to beat them in 2016.

All this week’s U14, U15, U16 & First XV Results:

Outeniqua fought their way through a tough challenge from Framesby to extend their lead over the chasing pack and rest on top of the U14 Rankings for yet another week as this season draws to an exciting end.

Grey College settled matters with their namesakes Grey High School with an emphatic win to put them out of reach at the very top of the U15 Rankings for this week.

At this crucial part of the season it is Paarl Boys High who are proving to have the stamina as they peel off the wins and go top of the U16 Rankings for this week.

Paarl Boys got over yet another successful hurdle in the form of a highly competitive SACS side who were in the game right until the final minutes. Boishaai remain unbeaten and at the very top of this week’s Totalsports First XV Top 100 rankings.

All this week’s U14, U15, U16 & First XV Results:

The long break from schoolboy rugby is over and there is still a fair amount of rugby still to be played in the 2016 season that could still see some changes in the Totalsports First XV Top 100 Rankings.

All this week’s U14, U15, U16 & First XV Results:

Salmaan Moerat, captain of the DHL Western Province U18 Coca-Cola Craven Week side, will lead the SA Schools team in the U19 International Series in August, while Enrista Blue Bulls centre Louritz Van der Schyff has been selected to lead the SA Schools A team.

Danie Craven, the legendary Springbok and rugby administrator pledged at the conception of the very first Craven Week back in 1964 that the spirit behind launching an annual schoolboy tournament of rugby was to ensure the future of the sport in the country.

Darren Adonis from South Western Districts has been named the Coca-Cola® Hero of the day for day 4 of the U18 Coca-Cola® Craven Week.

De-an Ackermann from Griquas has been named the Coca-Cola® Hero of the day for day 3 of the U18 Coca-Cola® Craven Week.

Wandisile Simelane from The Lions has been named the Coca-Cola® Hero of the day for day 2 of the U18 Coca-Cola® Craven Week.

JC Pretorius from The Pumas has been named the Coca-Cola® Hero of the day for day 1 of the U18 Coca-Cola® Craven Week.

Former springboks, provincial coaches and rugby academies are calling for more focus on coaching structures and the up-skilling of coaches at school-boy level if South Africa is to continue to be a contender in world rugby.

Jeppe are still at the top of the U16 Rankings following the weekend’s results will a comfortable win over St. John’s College and are still to be defeated in an official match this season.

An unchanged top ten for this week’s U15 Rankings which still see’s Grey College at the top by some distance followed Paul Roos and Selborne College who make up the three leading teams so far in 2016.

Outeniqua continue to look down on the chasing pack as they command the No.1 position on the U14 Top 100 Rankings for yet another week.

Boishaai arguably were given one of their biggest scares of the season when they took on a determined Boland Landbou who gave as good as they got. However the top team in South Africa did enough to preserve their unbeaten status and still head the Totalsports Top 100 First XV Rankings.
