Just about a month after positioning the Blues to victory in the “Super Rugby Pacific,” All Blacks legend, Jeff Wilson, has decided to alter a few things in his positions. Wilson has been able to retain the Blues’ position within the top five teams following a fantastic victory over the Rebels. The match ended in a 71-28 victory for the blues at Eden Park. The match has been a massive achievement for the team, adding to their winning streak of nine matches.
The Ultimate Driving Force Claims a Title
On the other hand, the Brumbies left the Crusaders in the dust moving forward to a second pole position in Wilson’s rankings. This decision was brought about after thrashing the Kiwis for the third consecutive time in a row in a recent clash. The Brumbies have also been able to clinch victory from the Chews during a match where they won 38-28 in Hamilton. This also played a big role in his decision as the team had also been able to beat the Highlanders and Hurricanes the week before.
Jeff Wilson has meanwhile spoken about these rankings and was quoted in various news websites like this one.
“I started watching the draw and thought to myself, ‘This Brumbies team, you know how hard it is to play in Canberra, that’s not an easy trip,'” he said. 60 international testers said. “They just won one game against the Blues,” while the Saxons had just won 53-15 over the Perth side, but the rankings slid down from second to third.
This downgrade comes after Scott’s team. Robertson had lost to the Waratahs and Blues in two of his previous three matches before beating the Force.
“The Saxons stepped up because they wanted a big result,” he said. Wilson told sources that when the Crusaders beat their opponents on Saturday, they were forced to resign.
‘They’ve controlled the game but it’s taken a while to get in control. They welcome the return of Richie Mo’unga. So I think that will help them move forward.”
The Chews, for their part, have slowly slid down the ranking as they moved from third to fourth in Wilson’s standings. This was decided after suffering a defeat to the Brumbies. In the meantime, The Waratahs have been placed in the top five, substituting the reds who have by now fallen out of the rankings.
“For me, after three weeks of competing against the Waratahs, I think they’re a strong team from the Australian side,” Wilson said.
With as little three rounds on the cards until the finals, all five sides in Wilson’s rankings will be required to muster a massive home-field improvement to the finals by ending off within the top four of the regular season.
