Top 20 schools rankings (19 August)

A 20-16 win over Oakdale helped Hoërskool Framesby reclaim their spot in the FNB Top 20, relegating Kempton Park.

The result doesn't affect Oakdale's position, though, because Framesby were not ranked before the match. Kempton Park, however, can feel slightly aggrieved as they lost their place among the elite group, having not played a match this past weekend.

In weeks gone by, the top three are the only teams to constantly retain their places. But not this week. Monument's shock 24-19 defeat to Nelspruit, drops them from second to fourth, with Paul Roos and Garsfontein now second and third respectively. Because Monnas are higher-ranked, Nelspruit jump from 18th to 14th.

EG Jansen's three-point loss to Garsfontein, downgrades them from fifth to seventh, which is good news for Grey High who climb to fifth. As the season draws to a close, Wynberg increased their chances of finishing in the top 10, with a convincing 34-17 win against rivals Bishops. They moved up from 12th to 11th with two matches remaining.

Over at,  Paul Roos and Garsfontein have swapped around in second and third position, resembling the same order as the FNB Top 20 rankings.

In other changes to the top 10, EG Jansen's decline from sixth to eighth, favour Grey High and Glenwood, who jump to sixth and seventh respectively. Paarl Boys' moved from 10th to ninth, directly swapping with rivals Paarl Gym.

At the bottom of the list, Oakdale and Grens drop out of the top 20, making way for Die Brandwag and Hoërskool Waterkloof.
