Lose and we are depending on France beating Wales to stay 4th.

Scotland Can't catch us.


I'd be fairly confident of France winning that game at home


I wouldn't. France haven't beaten Wales since the 2011 World Cup


Im a hopeless romantic

But also France are an improved and relatively settled side, different animal at home, Wales are a different animal away and have been to the well now

We did it

Scotland or Boks (severe transformation quotas coming in) would be great for second seeds

Obviously pumas nightmare 3rd

We remain fourth in World rankings as at end of March 2017. But......during the past 5 months we have beaten those three countries ranked above us.

So, let's remember the next time we enter a Competition that we should follow the advice of EO'S, "I learned that you must play with your heart in the fire and your head in the fridge"

How do Fiji, Australian, Wales and Irish wins impact on World Rankings?

We get v little(possibly nothing) because we are so far ahead of them. Ditto Wales and I think Australia who were also at home (so italy don't really lose any points either). Scotland will lose 2 points and Fiji get 2 points I think.

Fiji pick up points which brings them closer to Argentina who are 9th. Scotland drop to 6th behind South Africa. Australia get nothing for beating Italy and stay 4th. Wales and Ireland pick up a small increase in pts which keeps them 7th and 3rd respectively.

Will SA leapfrog us before the November internationals?

I think they will only make significant ground if they beat teams ahead of them, so they would have to beat NZ to overtake us.

If they beat Argentina by more than 15 points this weekend (unlikely but possible) they'll go ahead of us. However, if they lose they will drop to 5th behind Australia and Argentina will climb to 8th

As unlikely as the results may be we could actually end this weekend in 5th place

Screw beating New Zealand & England, beating Argentina & France makes you much more deserving of 3rd.... Really going to be rooting for Australia in 2 weeks.
