First XV Rugby: The Final Powerade Performance Rankings for 2015

First XV Rugby: The Final Powerade Performance Rankings for 2015 Thys Lombard

Paarl Boys High finish the 2015 Rugby season as the undisputable number one team in South Africa and deservedly on top of this year’s First XV Powerade Performance Top 100 Rankings.

To be an undisputable champion team, one would demand that a team face the very best opposition in the country and more than that win every match. Amazingly that is exactly what Boishaai went about doing during the season as they systematically ticked off the matches claiming victory on 21 occasions on 21 attempts.

In what was a gruelling test of endurance against all of the traditional powerhouses of SA Schools rugby, Boishaai were pushed to the limits on several occasions but like true champions fought to the bitter end and in so doing etched themselves into Boishaai folklore as one of their finest First XV’s every assembled.

Congratulations to Sean Erasmus, the coaches and of course the players of Paarl Boys High for a season of the highest calibre.

Of course for many the big shock was the sudden fall from grace of Grey College who held a strangle hold on the top position for many seasons and although a very competitive team they struggled against the top sides in 2015. However expect Grey to be back next season with plenty of motivation to recapture their position as a leading team in the country.

It has been a dramatic season with plenty of top class schoolboy rugby on display and it has been a pleasure generating the rankings each week.

Many thanks for all the correspondence and suggestions we have received during the season and the positive feedback has been much appreciated.
