After yet another highly successful Easter Festival weekend the cream has risen to the top with Grey College and Boishaai renewing their rivalry for the top spot in this week’s Belgotex Sports First XV Top 100 Rankings.
Watch Live the Keasney Easter Rugby Festival Matches Right here!
The Easter Weekend is upon us and there is a plethora of rugby on offer in the next few days that will see the finest teams in action.
In last year’s U14 Rankings it was a two horse race between Glenwood and Outeniqua with the Kwagga’s timing their run perfectly to pip Glenwood to take the top spot. Those same teams have progressed to the U15 ranks and have immediately risen to the top of this week’s Belgotex Sports U15 Rankings to resume their rivalry.
Grey College take the lead in the first publishing of this season’s Belgotex Sports U16 Rankings with what would have been an unblemished record until they met Menlopark who managed to pull off a narrow win against the Bloemfontein outfit.
The 2017 Rugby Season is in full swing and most of the leading teams in South Africa have played enough matches to grace this week’s Belgotex Sport s Top 100 Rankings.
The North vs South Tournament has grown in leaps and bounds and this week we will witness some of the finest teams in action from around the country.
Watch live the clash between EG Jansen vs Boland at 12:30 pm (1/04/2017).
As we take a collective deep breath before the smorgasbord of rugby is dished up during the Easter Festivals which is not far away, here is this week’s Belgotex First XV Top 50 Rankings.
Jeppe are off to a great start in the 2017 season and have already posed some problems for the opposition with their young dynamic side. Can neighbours St.John's College blunt their momentum?
It is probably a little premature to be publishing the first rankings of the season when there have only been a handful of matches played and many of the traditionally top teams have yet to even start their season. So we expect to get a bit of flack for that, but we can take it.
There is a spring in the step of the Jeppe XV this season after holding a strong Menlopark side to a 30-30 draw and signs that 2017 could be a big year for them. However St.Stithians has been known to turn the tables with their brand of running rugby so this should be a very interesting encounter between these Johannesburg neighbours.
