How to link Backup Jobs using different Selection lists?

Could be quite an easy one but it doesn't seem so straight forward.
I want to create a Backup policy that runs one backup job and when it competes it runs the second backup job which backs up files from a different selection list.
What I have done is.
1.) Create 2 Selection lists SelectionA and SelectionB pointing to different resources to be backed up
2.) Created a new Backup Policy
3.) Added in 2 Templates to the Policy. Both identical other than the second one is set to run a pre-post command and the schedule is set to use a rule only
4.) Created a Template rule that runs TemplateA and then TemplateB after it completes.
5.) Selected the 2 Selection lists that I want and clicked o.k
It creates 4 jobs using the 2 selection lists!
All I want is 2 jobs.
Job1 with Template1 using Selection list1 runs first then Job2 with Template2 using Selection list2 should kick off after job 1 has completed .
What am I doing wrong?
