Ireland Climb The World Rugby Rankings Following Famous Win Over The All Blacks


Australia’s defeat to England and Ireland’s famous win over the All Blacks has pushed the men in green up to fourth in the World Rugby Rankings and the Wallabies down to fifth.

The incredible victory for Andy Farrell’s men has also resulted in New Zealand being knocked off the top spot, to further add to their woes with the world champion Springboks now back on top again.

With South Africa gaining half a rating point for their victory over Scotland and the All Blacks losing 1.34 points as a result of their Dublin defeat, the Boks now hold a 1.8-point lead at the top.

England, meanwhile, are up to third after their 32-15 win over an Australian side that has come out on the wrong side of Eddie Jones’ men in their last eight outings.
