Boys School HS Rugby Week 14 Standings


Well, we looked every week for a reason to move one of the top three or four.

It’s not that we want to move anyone down, but we don’t want to be locked into a ranking just because we have it. So…this week…St. Ignatius faced a team from Grandville that we didn’t rank and a team that we expected the Wildcats to beat. But 109-0? That’s pretty emphatic, and perhaps a harsh lesson for a Grandville program that has historically produced a lot of good players.

And De La Salle played SFGG, which is a very good opponent. And you know we appreciate stronger opposition. But we have expectations—St. Ignatius wins 46-12 and DLS wins 34-15, so maybe that’s enough to change him. But St. Ignatius won by triple figures and DLS won by two points.

We have Regis Jesuit ranked well ahead of East HS despite East beating Regis at the start of the season. Why? Overall, Régis has recorded better results since then. Maybe we’re wrong on this point, but we don’t think we should be locked in for having Regis behind East.

Three other players of note: Rigby leads Owyhee after beating them, BC High enters the Top 50 after beating Milton, and Camas enters because, to be honest, we should have had them there before.
