Rugby World Rankings: There’s a new number one
Top position in the World Rugby Men’s Rankings has changed hands for the third time in five weeks with Ireland overhauling New Zealand to carry the mantle of the world’s number one team going into Rugby World Cup 2019.
Saturday’s 19-10 victory over Wales was worth just over sixth-tenths of a rating point to Ireland and improves their overall score to 89.47 points, while the All Blacks remain on 89.40 points following their emphatic 92-7 win against Tonga at Eden Park in Auckland in which wing George Bridge bagged four tries.
