National (597)

A last ditch try by Menlopark to take a valuable victory over Helpmekaar has resulted in a new number one in the U15 Powerade Top 90 Rankings.

The Powerade Performance U16 Rankings takes on a familiar appearance after several of the leading teams took a deserved break during last week, although there has been some movement on the table.

Just over midway in the season and with many teams taking advantage of the long-weekend there was a reduced amount of action although several teams have made inroads on the Powerade Performance Rankings.

Check out the various schoolboy rugby fixtures and results for this week here:

There is very little change amongst the leading 10 teams in the U14 Powerade Performance Rankings although Dale College stumble downwards after getting ransacked by Grey High School.

Helpmekaar stay on top of the U15 Powerade Performance Rankings for another week but they face their toughest challenge of the season this week when they face a fired up Menlopark in a match that could decide who ultimately is crowned king of the U15’s.

There is no change in the top three on the U16 Powerade Performance Top 85 Rankings with Jeppe, Grey and Monument still well placed to make a charge for the leading position.

If ever the rankings were going to be put to the test it would be when Paul Roos Gym and Paarl Boy’s High locked horns in one of the most fiercely contested matches of the season.

The Paul Roos Gym v Paarl Boy’s High is arguably the top match that will take place this weekend with both teams possessing the skills to snatch a very important victory.

Paarl Boy’s High open up a significant lead on the chasing pack as they claimed a comfortable victory over Rondebosch whilst Glenwood stumbled against Monument this past weekend.

Again a fairly similar look to the U15 Powerade Performance rankings with most of the top ten leading teams enjoy a victory over the weekend which has resulted in little movement at the top end of the table.

Jeppe continue to slay all comers in the U16 Powerade Performance Rankings and this time it was the turn of Affies to taste defeat at the hands of the country’s leading U16 team.

Paul Roos Gym finally burst into the Top 3 after completing their seventh consecutive win when they demolished a hapless SACS over the weekend.

Another jam packed week of schoolboy rugby with the likes of Affies v Jeppe, Glenwood v Monnas and Maritzburg College v Hilton just a sampling of some of the big clashes that will take place this weekend.

It remains a close race at the top of the Powerade Performance U14 Rankings with Boishaai and Glenwood leading the chasing pack.

Wins by all of the top 5 teams have kept this week’s Powerade Performance rankings for the U15’s unchanged at the top of the log, although Boishaai have closed the gap on Affies and Helpmekaar by virtue of having beaten stronger opposition over the weekend.

Yet another convincing win by Jeppe over the weekend ensures that they remain at the top of the U16 Powerade Performance for another week.

In a fiercely contested match between Boishaai and Grey College it was Grey who came out on top with a very narrow win and in so doing reinforced their dominance in the 2014 Powerade Performance Rankings.

It will rarely get any bigger than a match between Boishaai vs Grey College this season. The SA School’s No.1 and No.2 faced off in what will undoubtedly be one of the 2014 epics this weekend and whoever can walk away with the win will arguably be the top team in the country.

Boishaai have now gone a magnificent eight matches without conceding a loss and are sitting at the top of the U14 Powerade Performance Rankings for yet another week.

A convincing win by Jeppe over Pretoria Boy’s High keeps them firmly entrenched on the top of the rankings in what is turning out to be a memorable season for the Jeppe u16’s.

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.
