Great, so we can add Tonga to the adjusted world rankings. Any other teams?

Edit: I just read that Finland also played a test against Switzerland. Great!

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

First week ever out of the last position for the Czech Republic! After 169 weeks, if I counted correctly. They always closed the ranking since the publication of the first official women's ranking.
Now the last spot tally says

Czech Republic 169 weeks
Philippines 1 week

It makes a great story, but they were only there because World Rugby is ashamed of leaving there only the countries with real XV activity...

hmm I have mixed feelings. WR screwed it up in the first place by giving them less points than anyone else.

This ranking is a total joke and does women's rugby no good. They need to be relaunched and the most important part there need to be point reductions for inactivity implemented.
