Schools: Rugby Rankings Week 7
Despite a pretty busy list of fixtures last week only a few changes have occurred this week, albeit significant ones:
In the ‘match of the day’, Campbell College pushed to victory in the final few minutes against RBAI. Given that Belfast were one place above Campbell last week and playing in a home fixture it would have been reasonable to assume that things would have been different, although still as close. However, with CCB’s win at Osborne Park they move into 6th, while RBAI slide three places to rival’s former position, 8th.
Another top team who found it hard going this week was Regent House. Despite playing away from home they probably would have expected to defeat Down HS quite easily; however, the home team had other ideas and racked up a 14-point victory which sees them move up five places into 16th. Regent meanwhile drop one to 10th.
At the bottom, Antrim GS played a Friends’ SL team who have struggled so far to say the least; Antrim themselves had played very matches, so perhaps this would be the chance that Friends’ needed? If indeed it was, the Lisburn didn’t take it and Antrim secured their first win against an Ulster school, jumping up from 30th into 26th; Friends’ fall further, moving down to 28th.

BRA v Regent House: Two teams would probably would have expected more of themselves so far
Campbell College v Sullivan Upper: The East Belfast team face their near rivals from Holywood
