New Zealand

Auckland Premier 1A - St Kentigern continued on their unbeaten road beating Sacred Heart College 29-6 opening up a gap of 8 log points between St Kentigerns and Sacred Heart who is now number 3 on the log. St Peter's who only lost 1 game so far in this competition won against Mount Albert Grammar School 26-7 and are only 5 log points behind log leader St Kentigern College.

Central North Island - Feilding High is the only unbeaten team left and leading the pack with 8 points on the log. They had an easy day against St John's Hastings winning 50-17.

North Harbour Canon 1A - Takapuna Grammar remained unbeaten after beating Orewa College 48-12 while Westlake Boys High had their work cut out to beat Massey High 21-14 showing there is not much difference between a team that has not lost any games in this competition and one who lost 6 from 10 games.

Super 8 - Hamilton Boys High had a narrow escape against Rotorua Boys High with a 28-27 victory to remain unbeaten. The only other unbeaten side Napier Boys High won against Tauranga Boys High with 26-12.

St Patrick's Town 58-12 against Wairapara College to remain at number 3 on the log having just lost 1 game.

South Africa

Apart from the "Bondedag" in Nelspruit and the Independent Schools festival hosted by Kingswood nothing much happening in South Afrika.

At the "Bondedag" The Sharks and Cheetahs have issued a warning to the rest of the teams attending the u/18 Craven Week.

At the Independent Schools Festival, Hilton continued their impressive year beating St Alban's of Pretoria 33-0. Bishops won against hosts Kingswood 19-10 with maybe the biggest surprise Kearsney's victory of 25-17 against St Andrew's College.  It must be mentioned, however, that all the boys selected for the Youth Weeks from the participating schools were not allowed to participate.
