World rugby rankings - the groupings

Post by kiwigreg369 »

Interesting how countries are started to group together and struggle to move in/out (either consistency of results or ability to play better teams). Post RWC (doesn't it have double points) will see if this is the norm or different.

One of Wales / Aus / England will lose out with the pool of death - be interesting to see which, if any, of group C jump up with a QF. Poor NZ performance will see them fold back into B (the new A).

Group Ranking Name Points Points difference to next group
A 7.96
1 NEW ZEALAND 94.33

B 4.33
2 SOUTH AFRICA 86.37

Additional information added as a correction to the table above. The IRB really need to get their shit together if they want this sport to be taken seriously.
