An exciting seven days of school rugby has seen the Top 10 get a real shake up in the Daily Mail Trophy.

 

Wellington College remain top on 7.09 points, but with Harrow and Sedbergh coming up, they could be vulnerable.

 

Sedbergh narrowed the gap last week, they remain in second but up from 6.16 to 6.48 points.

 

Cranleigh stay in third having not had a fixture over the past 7 days, but St Peter’s York climb from sixth to fourth after their outstanding performance against Barnard Castle last week. They are just 0.10 points behind Cranleigh in third.

 

Despite winning once again, Cheltenham College slip back from fourth to fifth due to St Peter’s form, but with nine wins from nine Cheltenham are undoubtedly one of the best around and are here to stay in the upper echelons of the table.

 

Harrow slide up from 9th to sixth after another strong win. They could yet rise further and have a huge impact on the top of the table too as they face Wellington College on Saturday, a game crucial to the final standings in this year’s Daily Mail Trophy.

 

Kingswood remain in seventh, although they do still need to fulfill more qualifying fixtures, though they do have another this weekend.

 

Haileybury return to the top ten after a couple of weeks outside it. They are in eighth despite a defeat to Whitgift a couple of weeks ago. Their rise sees Canford, who were in fifth last week, bumped down to eleventh, just 0.03 points outside of the top 10.

 

Northampton School for Boys rise up from tenth to ninth despite not having played, and Reed’s are another returning side to the top 10, they return in tenth, bumping Dean Close out of the top 10, after they lost to King’s Worcester after resting 13 players last week.

 

Along with Canford, QEGS in twelfth on 5.24 and Blundell’s in thirteenth on 5.10 are the sides putting the most pressure on the top 10 at the moment, but it could all yet dramatically change of the coming weeks.
