What a day of rugby.
Ireland continued their unbeaten run at this year’s Six Nations with a huge try-bonus win over Wales at the Aviva Stadium yesterday afternoon. The win means their hopes of a first Grand Slam since 2009 are still alive.
Scotland meanwhile, shocked the world with a 25-13 win over England, their first over the Red Rose in a decade, to blow the competition wide open heading into the final two rounds.
Those results are also set to have huge implications on the official World Rankings. First up Ireland are set to gain .36 points, but more importantly, England are set to lose 1.49 points. This means Ireland could very well end up overtaking them, while breaking the 90-point mark if they win their last two games.
Scotland’s result is set to give them a boost of 1.49 points, lifting them back up to 5th, while Wales’ loss moves them down to 7th.
Not bad for a day’s work.
Updated World Rugby Rankings that will be released on Monday. Scotland move back up to 5th. Ireland make gains against England. Wales down to 7th but it's tight in the middle.#rugby #SixNations #rankings #SCOvENG #IREvWAL #FRAvITA @RugbySco @RugbyEng @RugbyIre @RugbyWal pic.twitter.com/dXNr1K5tTC
