Default Help designing a psu pcb - fuses where?

Hi all,

I'm designing a power supply pcb (single layer) for a 150W class AB amplifier.
The rectifier is off board. I'm using 5 4700uf 63V caps per rail and a 100nF bypass cap.
I'd like to ask if the drawing is fine or is something I should change. I put the o fuses after the caps but I see in some psu's the fuses located before the rectifier. Where should they go for optimal protection?
The eagle drawing is attached.

Fuses should go before the rectifier in case the rectifier goes.
