Oh. I forgot the Safferagettes.

Yeah. Them too, Biltong. Since you did go to the effort of chaining your petticoat to the King's horse.

Bloody Saffers coming up here and being - well , um, err - South African.Wink

Curious, why?

in 2013:
SA Played 9, won 7, Lost 2
NZ Played 14, won 14, Lost 0
NZ beat SA home and away

Can't agree but everyone's entitled to an opinion though.

Developmentally and in terms of overall entertainment, I'd say yes.

The ABs, no.

Team of the year - definitely ABs on gongs count.
But entertainment - the Bokke (although it makes me choke to say so).

Nice 1.18 point buffer between 3rd and 4th now. That's probably about right.

Wales slip below France now to 6th.

Massive gap from 4th to 5th.

I'm glad we played Australia when we did. Based on the last three games we would have lost those.

Rankings last week were:

Position Union Rating Points
1 NEW ZEALAND 93.81
2 SOUTH AFRICA 89.34
3 AUSTRALIA 86.88
4 ENGLAND 84.52
5 FRANCE 82.05
6 WALES 80.19
7 IRELAND 79.96
8 SAMOA 77.34
9 ARGENTINA 76.44
10 SCOTLAND 75.92
11 FIJI 74.21
12 TONGA 73.21
13 ITALY 73.13
14 JAPAN 72.06
15 CANADA 70.75
16 GEORGIA 69.07
17 ROMANIA 67.47
18 USA 67.41
19 RUSSIA 62.39
20 URUGUAY 60.77

By my calculations:

England 85.18 4th
France 82.05 5th
Ireland 81.04 6th
Wales 79.11 7th
Scotland 75.26 10th
Italy 73.13 13th

Georgia 70.06 16th
Romania 69.85 17th
Russia 60.01 20th
Spain 59.96 21st
Portugal 58.38 24th
Belgium 54.73 30th

So Ireland swap places with Wales.

Notes:
France could overtake England
A big win would see Wales overtake France (they can't catch England)
A big win would see Ireland overtake England (and France if they lose)
England can't catch Australia
Italy could overtake Scotland with a big win
A big loss to Scotland would see them fall below Fiji
A big loss to Italy would see them fall below Japan

Ah 4th is okay, we've seen it often enough to be reasonably familiar with the terrain. It's only when we get into 3rd that altitude sickness can get to us

Or to put it another way, Wales rise in 6th position as France slip to 7th. Ireland rise to 5th.

Is 80.76 not more than 80.59?

I may have fights with you elsewhere Port Wink

But what you do here is most appreciated as I drop in now and again through the year to see the lie of the land.

I look back at the 80s with a mixture of amusement and fondness.

The 90s, all the colour washed away by black.

The same for the decades when I think about it.

That's appreciated, Fly. It can be a chore sometimes but the glacial slowness of the rankings and the harsh laws of mathematics do sometimes raise seismological points of interest,

England will not now catch Australia this 6Ns. And their summer tour to NZ will likely leave the European bragging rights of more interest to V2ers

A very narrow win over Scotland and France in IRB rankings leap frog Ireland who just thrashed Italy. Bit strange?

More points are gained for an away win are they not?

Yeah but dont you get more points for score difference too? France leap frogged two teams. They were fortunate enough to beat Scotland I reckon. Are they really the 5th best team in the world? Maybe so.

Scotland are higher up the table than Italy though so France would have gained a fair whack for their away win.

Ireland at home to 14th placed Italy is never going to score much, even if they won by 100pts.

France move in mysterious ways.

Even the rankings wander aimlessly around the place with them. It never seems to matter quite how bad they look in games, they're always still there or thereabouts at the top end....usually sitting on top of Ireland Wink

We should be happy enough though as statistically the two of us kinda hover up and down the board in a loose partnership together. The trend seems to be continuing.

Not quite. The system adds 3 points to the pre game weighting to determine what the "average outcome is". So a home team will be expected to win by more to gain more points, and will lose more rating points if they lose the game.
Its not though a straight bonus.


Its been a very good system thus far in that if you take that 3 point home weighting and compare the pre game ratings between the two participants its picked the winner of every game to date except Italy Scotland ...which makes it almost as good as Gloria.

 Correct.  And up until today, we wouldn't have gained much from France either were we to beat them next week.  Now of course there is lots in it for us!!!!!!!!!!!  Em, just back in front of them again after a depressing week Wink

Ireland got nothing off Italy as they were more than 10 points ahead of them (including the home bonus). England can't get anything off Italy either (even with it being an away game).

According to the rankings they expect English, Welsh and French wins. We shall see.

EDIT: and position is less important than points.

And neither of those are as important as the ball

em......................... in this scenario, the one in Cardiff? Scotland have the most realistic chance of going anywhere of much significance next weekend if they win? I mean it might be up two places or so.

I meant left or right. Bit of crossed wires there.

Is the Scotland v Wales game in Cardiff then? If so Wales are on 83.4 and Scotland 75.5. So if Scotland win they'll get around 1.8 (2.4 for a hammering). So unless they hammer Wales they'll only get above Argentina (if they hammer Wales they'll go above Samoa). Wales will stay in at least 7th...I think.

If Italy win they'll go up to 12th (a thrashing and it'll be 11th). In this case I think Ireland would have to hammer France to go into 4th.

Over the years I've ridiculed these rankings a bit but as a rough estimate of where a team is at they do tend to be scarily accurate. Even the random enough use of '3' points for playing home/away seems to over time work out close to the mark.
