by Theresa Smith - Monday, 8 August 2016, 9:49 AM

The Boys 1st XV finished in the top 8 this season and will potentially play off to finish 4th dependent on the result of the next two matches.. Additionally beating St Bedes for the first time ever at home last week means they finish the competition as the top Co-Ed School and will play the top team in the Otago competition to challenge for best Co Ed School in the South Island.
