South Africa will maintain their position at the top of the World Rugby rankings, but there is a possibility that France could drop down. Despite their dominance in recent years, Les Bleus suffered disappointing defeats in the World Cup quarter-finals and the Six Nations. Ireland's victory over France has allowed them to close the gap on the Springboks, putting them just 2.43 points behind the world champions. The upcoming matches between England and Wales, and Scotland and France, could result in significant movement in the rankings. A win for both England and Scotland would move them above France, and Wales could move up to seventh if they beat England. The current world rankings are as follows: 1. South Africa, 2. Ireland, 3. New Zealand, 4. France, 5. England, 6. Scotland, 7. Argentina, 8. Wales, 9. Australia, 10. Fiji.
