Six Nations 2019: Ireland #1 IRB Ranking Watch



  • If Ireland win all six nations matches, they are likely to take the world number 1 ranking from us (that NZ has held for 8 years), depending upon the differential of those wins. I have listed some scenarios below. Hoping Ireland lose!

    Before 6 Nations, we have a ranking of
    1 New Zealand 92.54
    2 Ireland 91.17

    6 Nations Matches involving Ireland

    1. Vs England at Aviva, estimate 20-10 Ireland win
      1 New Zealand 92.54
      2 Ireland 91.31

    2. Vs Scotland at Murrayfield, estimate 30-10 Ireland win
      1 New Zealand 92.54
      2 Ireland 91.79

    3. Vs Italy in Rome, estimate 40-10 Ireland win
      1 New Zealand 92.54
      2 Ireland 91.79

    4. Vs France in Aviva, estimate 30-10 Ireland win
      1 New Zealand 92.54
      2 Ireland 91.79

    5. Vs Wales in Cardiff, estimate 25-10 Ireland win
      1 (↑2) Ireland 92.58
      2 (↓1) New Zealand 92.54

    **if Ireland lose 1 match, they will drop down to 90-91

    **the points diff against England, Scotland and Wales will be crucial, assuming Ireland win all matches.

    **there will be variance due to other results changing rankings, which I have not tried to calculate.

    **Then ABs play South Africa in Wellington July 27, Aus in Perth Aug 10, in Auckland Aug 17, not sure about Argentina

    **Assuming scores where we win at 30-15, 30-25, 30-10
    we will go to the world cup on 92.89

    Haha, took all of 5 minutes....Sort out your priorities! This is a rugby fan site 😉

    Clearly, @pakman and @MN5 need to work on their lasting ability....or perhaps geld with a knife for a more lasting and peaceful solution?
