Flying Fijians Soar in World Rugby Rankings

The Fiji Water Flying Fijians have surged into the top 10 of the Men’s World Rugby Rankings after their 21-12 victory over Georgia in Batumi over the weekend.

This weekend’s international rugby matches have resulted in several changes to the World Rugby Men’s Rankings, notably with Wales dropping out of the top 10 for the first time ever.

Wales, who had previously achieved the number one spot under coach Warren Gatland, have now fallen to an all-time low following a 25-16 loss to Australia in Sydney.

Australia’s Wallabies have climbed one rank, surpassing Italy, who let a 10-point lead slip away, losing 33-25 to Samoa in Apia.

At the top of the rankings, South Africa has strengthened their lead over Ireland by 4.49 points after a 27-20 victory against the Guinness Men’s Six Nations champions in Pretoria.

New Zealand’s narrow 16-15 win over England means there is now only a quarter-point difference between the Irish and the All Blacks, who hold second and third place, respectively.
