Best School for Sport in England 2017

By sport I am limiting my rankings for Schools to the two staples of English school sports in rugby & cricket. I am referencing the latest Daily Mail Trophy Rankings for Rugby & the Schools Cricket England Country League Rankings for Cricket – limiting scoring to the Top 100 teams in each & assigning 1 point for placing #100; 2 points for placing #99 & so on & then simply adding the rugby score to the cricket score (where Schools place within the Top 100 on both – which isn’t always the case) to come up with a third, combined, overall list.
