FNB Top 20 - 24 April 2012
Tue, 24 Apr 2012 00:00
There are changes this week all right. There would be if 18 beats 1!
It seems that Paul Roos find playing Eastern Cape sides a problem. They drew with Dale and now lost to Grey PE - in Stellenbosch nogal.
That has caused an upheaval at the top as Affies rise to the top. Not that they had it easy either, for KES played really well against them. They were not the only ones who had a close encounter, for Glenwood beat Hilton by just one point.
Lower down Centurion beat EG Jansen.
Then there have been some good performances by teams we had as part of a group putting pressure on the FNB Top 20, Michaelhouse beat Westville, Drostdy beat Oakdale and Daniël Pienaar beat Framesby.
There were also excellent performances from Ben Vorster, HTS Middelburg, Kemptonpark, Menlopark, Queen's, Rustenburg and Transvalia.
It all goes to show that competition amongst South Africa's schools is keen and close, and there is lots of it.
