There's a new No. 1 among the single-school boys high school teams after the top-ranked squad for the last couple of weeks, Ohio's St. Ignatius, lost at the Midwest High School championships.

It's a testament to how close all of these teams are that St. Ignatius drops to No. 6. While the Wildcats' loss to Penn on Sunday wasn't that ignominious, St. Ignatius slid out of the top five after several of its key rivals near the top of the rankings notched wins.

Jesuit of Sacramento takes the No. 1 spot after winning the Northern California Premier League and remaining undefeated there. The Utah teams make a move just because we're getting the sense they are playing well. Fishers, who didn't play in the Midwest Championships, moves up thanks to how its recent results fit in with the scores from Midwests.

Winning is always a great tonic to a team's rankings. Olympus, De La Salle, and Rocky Mountain all move up.

MLR Nationality Breakdown By Position: New England Freejacks

New England Free Jacks

The other day I was thinking about fly-halves in the MLR -- since that is my position -- and I got to thinking how few American players there are playing fly-half in Major League Rugby. The only ones I could think of off the top of my head were Ben Cima (SEA), Scott Dean (SEA), Tadgh Leader (NE) and Zinzan Elan-Puttick (AUS) -- and it's worth noting that both Leader and Elan-Puttick grew up playing rugby in Ireland and South Africa respectively.
