Inspired by derby news network, and following the wake of Roll Britannia, I present Interderbys new european power rankings!
Based on point differentials of roll britannia, heres how the teams appear to rank, and will move about the rankings from the results of interleague rankings from this point on.
1. London Rollergirls: clear number ones, this team blew apart the competition at Roll Britanna by huge point differentials.
2.Glasgow Roller Girls: GRG ranked 3rd at Roll Britannia but GRG played ARRG +50 point to GRG, where ARRG played BBDD with a +14 point differential in Birmingham’s favour, placing GRG above Birmingham.
3.Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames: Birmingham have lost key player Union Jack-U-Up, but are still going strong. A full bouting season is sure to lay ahead for next year, hopfully including a bout against #2 Glasgow.
4.London Rockin’ Rollers: London only lost to Glasgow by 11 points in their game, compared to Auld Reekies 50, moving LRR to number 4.
5.Auld Reekie Rollergirls: The Edinburgh team made a great tournament debut, winning their seed but taking a hard loss to number 2 Glasgow.
6.Stuttgart Valley Roller Girls strong team going since 2007, they faired well against number 1 LRG.
7.Berlin Bombshells : Another new team who made an upset in the seeded rankings, taking a lead against number 3 Birmingham in the first few jams. With some experience this team could rise up.
8.Cental City Rollergirls: Birmingham’s other team played strongly against ARRG, but a similar point differential to Berlin’s game against stronger team Birmingham Blitz places Central below Berlin.
9. Leeds Roller Dolls: Lost to Berlin by barely 10 points, but also faired well in their Birmingham game. I can easly see this team moving up in rankings in the next season.
10. Rainy City Rollergirls: A tough first bout for the rainy city rollergirls as their seed contained two very experienced teams. They played well and will be more accurately ranked once they begin bouting fulltime.
Teams from Roll Britannia unable to rank because of mixed team status:
Middlesbourgh Milk Rollers
Royal Windsor Roller Girls
Brawlin’ Angels Roller Girls
Romsey Town Rollerbillies
I would ideally love to see closely ranked teams play each other in the near future.
I’m not a huge stat geek-think the rankings should be different, please post a comment on why!
