The World Rugby Rankings Could Be Set For A Big Shake-Up This Weekend

The curtain will come down on this year’s Six Nations on Saturday with Wales vs Ireland set to take centre stage in an absolute belter of a fixture.
Ireland can still defend their crown if they beat Wales and England fail to get a result against Scotland, while Wales are gunning for a Six Nations Grand Slam in both Warren Gatland and Joe Schmidt’s final ever game in the championship before they depart their roles after the World Cup.
Bragging rights will also be on the line in terms of World Rugby Rankings come Saturday, with victory for Wales enough to see them overtake the Irish into second place.
Wales would fain .82 of a point with Ireland losing the same amount to leave them .45 of a point ahead. Roll on Saturday. What a game we have on our hands.
