The latest World Rugby Rankings are out and there’s been some movement with England and Wales going down and up respectively.
England’s shock 11-6 defeat to Scotland, their first defeat at Twickenham to their close neighbours in 38 years, has cost them second place in the rankings with the All Blacks overtaking them.
Wales’ win over Ireland at the Principality Stadium meanwhile sees them move up one place from ninth to eighth in the world, overtaking Argentina in the table.
Ireland remain fifth in the table, one place above Australia and one place below this weekend’s opponents France. A sixteen point win for the men in green this weekend would see them overtake Les Blues into fifth.
