Boishaai make their move into the top three of the U15 Powerade Performance Rankings for the first time after successfully shutting out Boland Landbou in a powerful display over the weekend.

Every one of the top three won their matches over the weekend which resulted in little movement at the top end of the table and Grey College remains the leading First XV team in South Africa with yet another win.

Affies take on KES in the Battle of the Jukskei with both teams moving closer to their best form of the season.

Boishaai ran roughshod over Wynberg to the tune of 58-0 during the past weekend to cement their place on the top of the U14 Powerade Performance rankings for another week.

Grey College lost their unbeaten status last weekend when they took on Affies and found themselves up against a formidable opponent who outplayed them in most departments.

Jeppe climb to the top of the U16’s Powerade Performance rankings after recording their sixth win of the season when they beat St.Stithians convincingly over the weekend.

Grey College stretched their unbeaten season to 13 matches when they were made to fight for every inch of turf in their match against Affies over the weekend.

Several big matches this weekend with Affies v Grey College heading the bill in this very busy part of the season.

Grey College have played a brilliant hand in their opening salvo of the season with nine wins from nine starts and deservedly rest on the top of the SA Schools u16 Top 60 Rankings.

Wildeklawer and the Wynberg Rugby Festival were the showcase events over the past week and the pedigree of school boy rugby that was on show was of the highest standard.

Wynberg make some serious inroads on the Powerade Performance U15 Rankings this week and are showing the form that could see them take the top spot if they keep on churning out the victories.

Grey College have been sublime so far this season and have consistently put away some strong opposition with big scores. In all but one match they have gone over the 40 point mark and so far they have only conceded three points to the opposition in all their matches!

With recent aggressive and arguably progressive rhetoric from the Minister of Sport, Fikile Mbalula, regarding the pace of transformation in rugby and cricket in particular, many a parent is asking what sort of future awaits their son in this country.

The Wildeklawer Festival will bring together 20 of the finest rugby playing schools in the country and will headline the matches that will be played over the next few days.

Helpmekaar make a dramatic entrance into the Powerade Performance U15 Rankings and immediately clinch the top spot having now gone unbeaten so far this season against some stiff opposition.

The dust settles on another epic Easter Weekend which saw numerous titanic struggles taking place across the country in the brilliantly organised and run Easter Festivals.

It is a three horse race at the moment in the U14 Powerade Performance Rankings with Glenwood, Paarl Boys High and Grey College unbeaten after their opening matches.

A mouth-watering smorgasbord of schoolboy rugby gets served up to us over the Easter Weekend and it is certainly going to allow us an opportunity to see just how the various teams match up in the cross-provincial matches.

Four straight wins by HTS Middelburg catapults them into the top position of the SA Schools U15 Top 40 Rankings with Grey College also making up some ground to be within striking distance of the top spot.

Jeppe extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a comfortable win over St. Benedict’s to remain one of the leading U16 rugby teams in country.

Paul Roos Gym and Grey High School slugged it out in one of the first epic matches of the season and showcased schoolboy rugby at its very best.

High flying Grey High School face their biggest test of the season as they travel to Stellenbosch as the guests of Paul Roos Gym in one of the season’s most keenly anticipated matches.

One of the most interesting and hotly contested age groups in school boy rugby is the U14’s with the players desperate to establish themselves in their first year of high school rugby and the schools hoping that the bursaries and new intake with take them to new heights.

U16 Rugby: The SA Schools Top 35 Rankings

It is always interesting to see how the lower age groups are doing in comparison to the First XV’s and it helps to gauge the depth of rugby being played at a particular school and what we can expect from them in the seasons to come.
