  1. @Hooit: I added a table of teams.

    I guess AW team 26,27 and 28 are the ones in doubt now as these will effectively become “B” teams at Academy Week

  2. @CharlesZA: I think Border CD’s biggest problem is that they are totally stripped of all their top players by the time they are u17 or u18 so it’s never had to be a consideration. A good example was SA u18 representative Gugu Nelani last year. In 2014 he represented Border CD at Grant Khomo. Come 2016, he was a KZN player from Northwood.
