Wales knocked the All Blacks off the top spot in the World Rugby Rankings for the first time in nearly a decade this week – but their reign at the top could be short-lived.
With Warren Gatland’s men not in action this weekend – Ireland can become the number one team in the world if they manage to defeat England at Twickenham by any margin.
Ireland currently sit in third place and just 0.74 of a point behind number one ranked Wales. The All Blacks are just .03 of a point behind Wales and an Ireland win could see them slip to third – equalling their lowest ever ranking.
A win for Eddie Jones’ England however, would see the top three sides retain their current positions, while the English would reclaim fourth spot ahead of the Springboks.
