Ireland have been overtaken in the World Rugby Rankings by Wales after their Six Nations defeat to Warren Gatland’s side at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday.
The Welsh take second spot for the first time since 28 September, 2015 following their 25-7 win to claim a third Six Nations Grand Slam under Warren Gatland and extend their winning run to 14 Test matches.
They gain 1.23 points for the win, while Ireland drop to third after losing the same amount. England’s incredible 38-38 draw in a see-saw Calcutta Cup match saw them lose a point and Scotland gain one but with both teams staying put in the rankings, in fourth and seventh respectively.
