Top 20 schools rankings (8 April)

Paul Roos's dominance at the St John's Easter Festival sees them top the first FNB Top 20 rankings list of the season.

Prior to their three victories against Viadana, Jeppe and Monument at the festival, the Maroon Machine defeated Affies 29-12 at their annual rugby day and lost 15-10 to Rondebosch at the WP Rugby Schools Day.

In second position, Boishaai boast a perfect record with six wins so far in 2015.

Grey College are ranked third, after they followed up a surprising 34-34 draw against Diamantveld with wins over Menlopark, Middelburg, Kearsney and EG Jansen.

Nelspruit, Eldoraigne, Middelburg, Selborne, Maritzburg, Monument and Waterkloof round off the top half of the table.
