The 10 best teams in the world are fighting for the first place in the men’s World Rugby ranking

With all of the world’s top 10 teams in action this weekend, there could be some significant changes when the World Rugby Men’s Rankings powered by Capgemini are officially updated at 12 noon on Monday.

To be certain of staying at number one, South Africa need to repeat their November win over Wales in Cardiff when the teams meet at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

A failure to do so will leave the Springboks vulnerable to results elsewhere, especially from Eden Park in Auckland, the venue for the eagerly-awaited encounter between New Zealand and Ireland, the sides ranked third and fourth.

If South Africa draw with Wales, New Zealand or Ireland must win by more than 15 points to assume the number one ranking.
