March 31 Kept the PRP Static and Just A Handful of Action in Rest of Pacific South Play

Close games ran through the Pacific South over the Easter weekend.

Many Pacific South teams had byes on March 31, so there must've been plenty of fresh legs for the Sunday Easter Egg Hunt.  The exclusion was the Pacific Rugby Premiership who had a full three matches, yet no movement on the leaderboard.  There were just a handful matches in the Division I, Division II, and Division IV with the Women being off altogether.
