  1. Six games to go for Boishaai but all six opponents in the top 26…..ouch. With injuries building and the opponents getting stronger by the looks of things it is going to be a very hard run to inter schools.

  2. @beet, can we get the rankings up to 50 and the actual score for each team?

  3. @Umtata: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    If rankings were a serious factor for schoolboys, it would be nervous times for Grey College – KES (facing Monnas this weekend) and Grey PE (facing QC) are still unbeaten and looking like they want that status quo to remain. Should a consistent Glenwood ‘upset’ DHS :mrgreen:, and Paul Roos pull off the unexpected by beating Boishaai…it would be very interesting to see the shake up in that top 8

  4. @Playa: Paul Roos strong team yes they lost to couple sides but like Affies they can do some serious damage…ask GIM who only beat them last min.

  5. @Playa: I know Queens have always being Grey PE banana peel but with the current situation at QC I don’t see that happening all I can say there I think QC are in for a hiding unless they play like they did against Selborne.

  6. @rugbyfan: Yip agree don’t see QC beating Grey just to much going on there that needs to be sorted.

    @Playa: Will keep you updated on happenings on Saturday with Dale’s 1st visit to Muir in over 20 years I think. Although Dale should be to much for Muir, just hope it is a contest. Under 14’s Dale should win by 75 at least. Under 15’s should be closer and Under 16’s should be the game of the day.

  7. This is still the best rankings of the lot. I know there is still some issues, but for the most part, still the most reliable.
    I feel sorry for one of my other teams, Brackenfell, who were in the top 20, or just outside it the past few weekends. They dropped out of the top 30 after a loss ( 26 – 12) against a highly rated SACS side, who agreed (read their own commentary of this match on the blog) that the match was indeed much closer than the result reflects.
    However, that is what the system dictates, and it is what it is. I am sure that there are many similar stories from the various schools.

  9. @Stier: Yep ! No,s 2, 8, 10, 13, 21,and 26. Remaining fixtures no joke ! But that is to be expected if you compete against the top guys on a regular basis. And Boishaai is used to that sort of challenges. Looking forward to some epic and nerve wracking matches.

  10. @Smallies: No one expected a Selborne that couldn’t beat Dale to beat Grey College. Rugby just isn’t measured that way. Sorry to use a painful example. Marlow are not a bad side, and going into the game against Grey, they had already played 3 games in the season, whereas Grey was playing their first. Not to say the result would have been any different under different circumstances.

    @odie15: The odds are against them, but I am definitely not writing them off. I think they can beat Boishaai if they have their day – it’s just an unthinkable situation :mrgreen:

    @rugbyfan: @Queenian: QC have a tendency of upsetting Grey with the weakest of teams. This team is talented, and has the size to match the Pyjama Boys. If they bring half the performance they brought against Dale & Selborne they’ll be in with a chance. I will be shouting for the kudu

    Queenian – I’d appreciate that very much. Also if possible, could you take videos of each school doing the war cry and send to me? I know the KWT version of Amadoda is better…it would just be great to have both renditions in my files :mrgreen:

  11. @Playa: marlow has a great side this year just ask the boys from menlo, eldorein and nico malan, I also think that they will give the border big guns a difficult time this year… Not taking anything away from GreyHigh but rather trying to boost marlow here…. Small school punching way above their weight

  12. @Playa:

    I don’t really think Grey College will worry about the rankings at this moment. Still have number 6, 7 and 8 ranked to play aswell as 29 – Welkom Gim, Noord-Kaap or Diamantveld. Non of the named teams will be bad on the day.

  13. @Playa: if Boishaai produce another Grey performance…it could become ugly! But its always tight vs PRG…Don’t trust them as far as I could throw them. And these days….its not far!

  14. Affies se diepte kom nou deur. Die beseringslys is langer as die spanlys. 6 eerste span keuses uit vir res van die jaar. Vertrou hulle sal steeds kompeterend wees. Ek glo in die seuns en hulle Affie Guts!

  15. @Playa: started to drizzle…they say quite a bit Friday/Saturday. Guess I will need the jacket!!! am I good enough for 1?

  16. DAY 1 000

    I was hoping Beet opened a special thread for Day 1 000 but anyway a great achievement by Paarl Boishaai on their thousand day unbeaten run against local competition

    This is most certainly one of the best streaks by any school in the modern era, I know a few teams claim to have had longer runs but not in the professional era

    Well done to Sean Erasmus, Elmo Wolfaardt, support staff and all the players who are part of this record

    Day 2 000 countdown will start as of now

  17. @odie15: Friday will be quite heavy…Saturday light in the morning, clearing mid morning.Bring some Grabouw wors, and you’ll be sorted :mrgreen:

  18. @odie15: PRG is going to be difficult, they had a nice break last week and with five boys from the 2013 Lochnerhof dream team that won Marlow, they have boys there that have played winning rugby together since primary school. Yes they might only be in grade eleven but they know each other well. This year Boishaai might still have their number but next year they are going to be a very difficult team to beat.

  19. @BoishaaiPa: Dit is hoekom ek vandag al begin vier het.
