Rugby Union Rankings

The top ten nations according to the International Rugby Board with the previous ranking in brackets and ranking points.  (updated 19th March 2012)

1(1) NEW ZEALAND 91.43
2(2) AUSTRALIA 87.99
3(3) SOUTH AFRICA 84.34
4(4) ENGLAND 83.62
5(5) WALES 83.32
6(6) FRANCE 81.91
7(8) ARGENTINA 80.28
8(7) IRELAND 79.85
9(9) TONGA 76.63
10(10) SAMOA 75.81

Strangely, the Six nations champions and world cup semi-finalists Wales are ranked below runners-up in the Six Nations, England. Although I suspect that Wales would rather have the championship than the ranking place.
