Cricket: Top 40 Rankings For 2013

For much of the year the race for the No.1 spot was a three horse race with Waterkloof taking the early lead with a powerful start to the first term and going into the last month of the season it looked like the Pretoria team might have done just enough to secure the top spot for 2013.

Published in Cricket

Waterkloof is undisputedly regarded as one of the powerhouses on the school boy cricket circuit. Superb performances in the highly competitive Pretoria league, strong showings at the annual National T20 competition and the recent production line of first class and national cricketers, suggests that they have firmly entrenched themselves as one of the top cricket schools in the country. With Director of Cricket, Neels De Villiers at the helm and the Waterkloof cricket academy in great shape, all the workings are in place to cement the school at the top for many years to come.

Girl's Hockey: The 2013 Top 55 Rankings

Back to back victories by Oranje Meisies have secured them the No.1 spot in the country and there are few who would challenge the supremacy they have shown this season.

Published in Hockey

A season of some of the world’s best school boy rugby has all but come to a close and for the players who ran out for the last time for their school they will be left with that supreme pride that comes from wearing their teams badge and playing to their best ability. A memory that will live with them for decades.

It was a tightly fought season which saw three teams vying for the top spot almost from the start of the season and at various stages all three, Affies, Outeniqua had a taste at being the number one side in the country.

However it is perhaps fitting that it is Affies who can lay claim to the top team in South Africa after completing the season without being defeated, without drawing and winning every single match. It is a supreme effort by a side that played the country’s most powerful teams and still remained competitive scoring heavily in most of their matches.

It is perhaps a pity that somewhere along the line Affies and Paarl Gim never met, as on paper there was very little to choose between the two teams, however Gimmies were held to a surprise draw by Oakdale in what was their only ‘blemish’ on an otherwise spotless season so perhaps finishing in second spot is justified.

A strong finish by Grey College, after an indifferent start to their season put pressure on Outeniqua for the third spot, but the consistency of Outeniqua helped them to finish in the Top three after suffering just the one defeat at the hands of Paarl Gim.

It was another great season and our thanks to the thousands of players, coaches and the avid fans of schoolboy rugby that showed sustained interest in the rankings, offered advice and suggestions and supported us. Rankings are not an absolute science but by factoring in the strength of the opponents, margin of victories and the actual results it is hoped that a team’s current form can be judged.

PAARL GIMNASIUM UNDER 16 TOURNAMENT – MARCH 30 TO APRIL 3, 2013

PG 16Paarl Gimnasium (Gim) will be hosting their 21st annual under 16 rugby tournament in March 2012. Twenty four of the country's top schools will play matches on March 30, April 1, & 3.

School tournaments traditionally focus on the under 18 level. The Gim tournament offers younger players a chance to compete against top schools outside their province on an almost provincial level.

 The top six FNB Top 20 schools of 2012 participate in the Gim tournament.


The wealth of attractions offered by Paarl, the Cape Winelands and the fact that Boishaai’s under 15 rugby tournament takes place at the same time, contributes to the tournament’s growth in size to something similar to other famous School Rugby Festivals up-country.

Participating teams for 2013:

 

Gauteng: Afrikaans Hoër Seunskool, Centurion, EG Jansen, Garsfontein, Monument, Waterkloof, Kempton Park

Cricket: Rankings for 24th February, 2013

There was considerable movement on the table over the past week as most of the teams were engaged in numerous matches in a short space of time which tested the depth of the various sides.

wkWaterkloof who were the finalists against Rondebosch in the Coke T20 Challenge cling on to the top spot although the gap between them and the rest has shrunk appreciably. Affies take the second best slot thanks to a win against Waterkloof and a good showing during the Independent Schools Festival. Rondebosch who are now the champions of the T20 format, deservedly get back into the top three and had it not been for their surprise loss against St.Andrew’s Bloem they could have been challenging for the No.1 position.

One of the big movers is St.Andrew’s College who are now on a seven match winning streak and they burst into the Top 10 after enjoying an excellent week which included a stunning nine wicket win over Affies. St.Alban’s also have put together some good results and went undefeated at the Independent School’s Festival . Paul Roos Gym also break into the Top 10 after stretching their winning streak to four matches which has included brushing aside Wynberg twice.

The equation used for these rankings are not based purely on a win/loss ratio and in order to grade the various wins against stronger or less stronger teams a formula has been used to give as realistic evaluation of the team’s form. Click here to see how the rankings are worked out.

Cricket: Rondebosch Win Coke T20 Challenge

It would be Rondebosch and Waterkloof who contested the Coca-Cola Schools T20 Challenge after over 600 teams had all had their opportunity to stake a claim as the best school team in this format.

champsRondebosch seem to have found form just at the right time and their earlier loss against St. Andrew’s Bloem had given them just the shock they needed to motivate them to play at their best. Matt Christensen had been in tremendous form throughout the season and much was relied upon him along with the rest of the ‘Bosch batters to give themselves a defendable target.

However Waterkloof who are enjoying one of their best season’s to date had already shown along their journey to the finals that they are a formidable side and capable of rolling over most teams. Johannes Malan had played some important innings for Waterkloof in the preceding matches and they needed another strong showing from the opener if ‘Klofies were going to compete.

Batting first Rondebosch lost Christensen early and their captain Hayes van der Berg and were on their backfoot at 2/20 in the fifth over. Waterkloof had opened the bowling with the medium pacer Migael Pretorius who bowled a lively pace to end with two precious wickets in his spell.

However it was the man of the match Zubayr Hamza that would make the difference between the two sides. The Rondebosch no. 3 batsmen played a wonderful innings as he stroked his way to a half century which included seven boundaries off just 44 balls. It was the only innings of substance as the rest of the Rondebosch batters struggled against the slow left arm spin of Reinhardt Grobbelaar who frustrated the ‘Bosch batsmen to claim two wickets for only 17 runs in a tight spell.

Needing to score at just on 5.6 runs per over Waterkloof would have backed themselves to reach the 112 runs required at a canter. However the mercurial Dayaan Galiem who opened the bowling for Rondebosch struck in his first over and then proceeded to take another wicket in his next two overs to rock Waterkloof at 3/11.

It was a disastrous start to the run chase for Waterkloof who despite some gallant efforts by the left hander Lehan Janse van Rensburg who scored 28 runs and Henco Vorstman who made 24 runs never fully. Some great fielding by Rondebosch and a clinical bowling display saw Waterkloof bowled out for 102 just 10 runs shy of the victory.

Congratulations to all the teams who took part in the challenge, the finalists and the Rondebosch for the excellent spirit in which the matches were played.
