I do check and re-check the inputs Linebreaker.

But still I got one wrong last RWC when I accidentally put Saf's points in for Scotland.

Nobody noticed the gaffe...

I almost had Scotland and Samoa back to front. Rights positions but incorrectly they had each others points. Fixed it now.

This is fantastic England are snapping at the heels of the big 3 and are once again the best team in the NH. Yahoo

If only we had played Aus this summer then we would now be celerating a series win down under.

I always do mysti.

Nothing I saw from England in this series stood out as brilliant... just a solid tradesman-like performance which is good.

Oz still have more work to do but are also heading in the right direction.

Wales flattered Aus, both teams were poor when you look at the bare facts, I saw nothing that would have frightened England this summer.

The Lions will win 3-0 next year

Maybe - i dunno enough about rugb y other than international time and those performances. I would allwasy be confident(even with an average england) of giving you lot a run for your money.

The most impressive trait you showed this time was holding on to this stranglehold you have v wales. What ever they do, however close they get- you lot just didnt let them have a game. It is winning play, and a winning mentality that needs to be acknowledged. But against england or france- i am not sure!

The Lions are an overhyped team from last century, HERSH. We smashed them easily last time (everyone does) and I'm sure we'll do it again next year. Very Happy

mysti, France?
You mean the team the Wallabies beat 59-16 recently?
England may have trouble with France but they fear us much more naturally considering our better record.

On the basis that we have won the last two (home and away) and the last match was what can only be described as a humping the bragging rights are very much ours. You're going to have to beat us in the autumn if you want them back!

In the normal course of events, the official rankings would have been announced by now - especially after major internationals.

It's now 1630 BST and no update.
I'd love to know by whom and whence the figures are announced.

OK looks like this after the official figures were announced:

Assuming ABs win, Saffers must get a big (>15) to overtake OZ.

Assuming Saffers win, Argentina stay 8th.

However should Argentina win, they would overtake Ireland.

There is no point discussing the All Blacks as they to all intents and purposes in the stratosphere.

It must be re remembered however, that congrats should be extended to Biltong and his compatriots that they rightly grabbed the top spot off 'England' in the cricket rankings.

Mystir, I care more about our series wins records. You can lose a ranking or gain a ranking in a month, but your record can't be taken away no matter your ranking.



check this out.

Since OCT 2007 (1 month short of 5 years)

9 away test series - 7 wins, 2 draws
8 home series - 4 wins, 1 loss, 3 draws

Total 17 series, 11 wins, 1 loss, 5 draws.

Makes for pretty reading.

total matches played 47, 26 wins, 11 losses, 10 drawn.

Its statisical recognition Bilty. You wouldnt be no.1 without that record. You desrve it very much. Shocked to see you climb to the top of the T20's though. England was miles ahead of that!

Along with rugby sevens.

But the harsh reality is that T20 is beginning to reshape the financial fundamentals of cricket and looks like becoming the dominant form of the game as it appeals to the subcontinental market.

International test matches struggle to even nearly fill a 10000 stadium .

Sad but but true.

I think it's too soon to conclude that T20 will be the dominant form of the game. It's relatively new and plenty of fads fade in time.

Sevens I like.

Just watched the ABs v Australia game where the Ozzies competing against a misfiring ABs were nilled to 22. And as they say, they were lucky to get nil.

Need Deans get on the plane back?

Anyway. if SA win tonight by more than 15, they go second. A distant second, nut nonetheless, second.

Need Deans get on the plane back?

Anyway. if SA win tonight by more than 15, they go second. A distant second, nut nonetheless, second.





Don't tell Biltong. He might get overexcited.

Argentina's draw helps Dingo a teentsy bit.

I'll work up some new predicted outcomes on Monday.

Bloody Saffers don't like being met with their own brand of rugby very much do they?

So: a big win to Argentina could seem the leapfrog Wales and Ireland (unlikely), and a draw would see them head Ireland (possible). A Sa victory and a wallaby loss would see them swap rankings.

Anyone know the latest rankings? Obviously we have had a number of tri nations games. This could have an effect on the big up and comming scrap for the 4th place .
