When it comes to ranking the top school teams in KZN, there are any number of ways to go about it. For the purposes of keeping it simple, a pretty fair system of awarding 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss has been used below.
Also to note is that this is an attempt measure the so-called Tier 1 KZN rugby schools only. It is therefore based on how these Tier 1 teams performed against each other. It excludes results against schools from outside the borders of KZN plus it limits the number of KZN schools to just those that play at least 5 or more games against the other traditional top KZN schools. This means that it is quite possible for a situation where one team is ranked higher than another in KZN only to be reversed when looking at the overall national rankings that obviously take ALL results against ALL teams into account.
Scenario 1 includes George Campbell and St Charles, 2 schools that each played 5 games against the other measured schools. In this scenario it is necessary to use an average points per game in order to gain parity because all teams would not have played the same number of games.
Scenario 2 excludes George Campbell and St Charles, leaving 8 schools that all played against each other this season and therefore eliminating the need for averaging.
Finally with the Hilton-Michaelhouse return fixture coming up and the College-Glenwood return game set to be played next term, consideration will have to be given to how those results are incorporated into both scenarios. Here the fairest treatment seems to be one of going back and reallocating only half the points on offer to each game, i.o.w. 1 point for a win instead of 2.
