Springboks Remain At The Top Of World Rugby Rankings

 

The Top 10 Nations ranked by World Rugby did not change despite several tests that were played by the Northern Hemisphere nations.

Despite Ireland's 36-00 win over Italy on Sunday afternoon, they did not make any inroad into the Springboks' lead at the top of the rankings as they gained nothing from beating Italy due to the 16.52 rating point gap between the nations before home weighting is factored in.

Due to the big gap between the All Blacks and France, France's points earned with their win against Scotland were not enough to overtake the All Blacks and remained at 4th.
