First XV Rugby: The First Top 100 Rankings for 2018

The 2018 school rugby season is still very much in its embryonic stage and the form and fortunes of many teams are bound to fluctuate during the course of a very busy season.

 

However with the smorgasbord of rugby that was on display during the many Easter Weekend Festivals that are now strewn across the country, we can take a very early look at how some of the teams are faring so far.

Of course there are many teams that still need to be entered onto the rankings once more matches are played however it is good to see several of the leading teams already showing good form.

Paul Roos Gym take an early grasp on the top spot after notching up some huge wins at the St.John’s Festival. It will be interesting to see just how long PRG can remain on top as the opposition gets tougher but all in all a good start by Paul Roos.

Paarl Gim and Affies make up the remaining spots in the top 3 with Gimmies in particular looking menacing in their outings against Waterkloof and EG Jansen where they managed to notch up over 50 points per match.

Bishops have played some wonderful rugby so far and outplayed a good Grey High School and St.Stithians over the past week to announce that they are prepared to battle it out to remain amongst the leading teams in the country.

The top 10 are all unbeaten so far and are marginally separated mainly by the strength of opposition that they have played.

Expect the rankings table to change as more teams are added and more matches get played and this first publishing is really a rough guide to who has already displayed some winning form. The first publishing of the rankings is also a good reminder to many of the schools to ensure they are back into the groove of sending their results through to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Bear in mind that the rankings equation is based on a very similar equation used by the ICC Rankings. Factors that are taken into account is the strength of the opposition, home and away status of matches, margin of victory, margin of loss, actual points scored etc.
