Paarl Boys High’s perfect season continued with a win over Drosdty, but just below them there were some changes with Paul Roos beating Grey College who drop from second down to fourth below Paarl Gim.

Selborne College is the highest ranked school in the Eastern Cape.

With so few schools still playing rugby it was tough to make changes to our weekly list, but there was some more movement towards the bottom as well.

Garsfontein picked up impressive wins over Monument and HTS Middelburg to jump from 20th to 17th, and Diamantveld’s victory over Sentraal saw them move up to 18th.

Potchefstroom Gim drop out of the Top 20 after their defeat to Helpmekaar who got their foot in the door late in the season.
