Boys School HS Rugby Rankings Week 13

Brother Martin won big. Enzo Antonio Foster.

This was a very weird rankings week.

We had well-regarded teams lose by significant margins. We had teams beat highly-ranked teams and lose to lower-ranked teams in a tournament format (OK, that is a commentary on the rankings rather than anything else).

We have teams in the lower reaches making a move, and good results at the top, but the middle is somewhat mixed. That, along with teams losing in competitive circumstances to top-ranked teams, mean we sometimes see teams winning (or being idle) and dropping down, and teams losing and moving up.

Notable moves:

Jesuit New Orleans bumps up after a good result. St. Joe's Prep does as well. LaSalle lost to a lower-ranked club team, Raptor Rugby, but that was a team we were waiting on to have some rank-relevant results. They did, and we decided we will reward Raptor rather than penalize the teams they beat.

St. James had an excellent weekend and moves up 14 spots. Highland moves up despite a loss partly at the urging of their opponents, defending national champs Herriman who tell us they deserve a higher ranking.

Rugby beat a ranked team and Milton beat an almost-ranked team and they join the Top 50.

Moving down, St. Edward moves down somewhat and the big issue there is they are not playing a lot outside their region. East HS lost to St. James and we moved St. James up and East down. Notre Dame de la Salette ost a couple of games that move them down.
