PACS 100: South Africa

The PACS 100 is our annual list of the top prospects we will be keeping an eye out on for the forthcoming 2021 season.

Last year a rankings system was in play but we have opted against that this year rather listing all players alphabetically and not focusing on individual rankings as of yet.

On Wednesday we will release via YouTube our Top 15 prospects to watch and finally on Friday we will announce our Number 1 prospect for the 2021 season.

When doing this list we tried to avoid just focusing on the top schools and introduced some talent from the lesser known schools who we think may need the extra exposure, with no rugby played last year we had to rely a lot on Grant Khomo footage as well as our network.

We are focusing only on Under 18 players, there are an abundance of Under 17 talents that will get their turn next year and there are Under 19’s who will be returning that are massive players, if we did not mention Merwe Olivier and Ebenezer Tshimanga as examples we would be doing any list of prospects a disservice.

This is not to say these are the only players we will be watching and nor is it saying players not included are not worth keeping an eye on, the sheer abundance of talent in South Africa is truly beyond the grasp of many and it will be our mission to give as many of these young players exposure as we possibly can.

Keep an eye out for our release of the English 100 followed by our World Under 20 100.
