Paarl Boys’ High have finished the 2015 season as South Africa’s top-ranked schools team.
Boishaai were above and beyond the best team on the schools circuit and deservedly top the table. City rivals Paarl Gymnasium occupy second position following their consistent showing in 2015, while the Maroon Machine of Paul Roos are in third place behind Gimmies.
Pretoria’s Affies and Krugersdorp’s Monument also featured prominently in the top 10 throughout the season and finish in fourth and fifth spot respectively.
Grey College, Oakdale, Outeniqua, Selborne and HTS Middelburg complete the top half of the rankings.
The inclusion of SACS, Boland Landbou and Rondebosch, brings the Western Cape’s tally to eight schools on the list. Gauteng, with the addition of EG Jansen, Eldoraigne and Garsfontein, have five representatives.
The rest of the group are made up of two sides each hailing from KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Province and Mpumalanga and one from the Free State.
