The Movers And Shakers – Week Ending 30/01/2018

Not a lot of rugby was played during last week BUT Wildeklawer and the Grey PE Festival gave us more than enough action.

The Top 10

Helpmekaar crash out of the Top 10 after a very disappointing Wildeklawer where they lost against Diamantveld (26-27) and Boland Landbou (21-35). Menlopark also drops out of the Top 10 to #15 after losses against Drostdy HTS (16-22) and Paul Roos (24-68).  Drostdy HTS's victory against Menlopark (22-16) earned them enough ranking points to enter the Top 10 at #10, but the star of the weekend is St Andrew's College who had a big victory against DHS (31-15) and move up 6 positions to #6.

The Top 20

Selborne College is the only entrant in the Top 20 gaining 15 positions after their wins against KES (29-3) and Jeppe (19-3). Selborne entering the Top 20 at #13. The hosts of the Grey High Festival moved up 8 positions after their victories against St John's (38-3) and KES (33-17). Grey High ended up at #16. DHS and EG Jansen move out of the Top 20 after their somewhat disappointing performances at the Grey High Festival and Wildeklawer.

The Top 50

Queen's College moved to #48 after their victory against St Stithians (21-17) at the Grey High Festival, Parktown Boys High enter the Top 50 at #45 after the victories of 26-19 against Daniël Pienaar and 31-24 against Hudson Park. Ben Vorster pays the price for playing against lowly ranked Ben Viljoen. Ben Vorster drops to # 51. Northwood drops 4 positions to # 53 after their loss of 6-10 against Maritzburg College.

The Top 100

Strand's loss of 5-61 against Kasselsvlei made them drop 9 positions to #103 with Krugersdorp being promoted to #100 not playing a game.
