Rugby World Cup

I have been over the moon with the victory by the Springboks in the World Cup of Rugby. It was pretty much the Bok's to lose after the All Blacks were knocked out by the French - who did not play particularly well - and the Wallabies were ousted by the Poms - who did. Nevertheless the South Africans still had to complete the assignment and boy did they ever - wiping out the Pumas before grinding down the English (although the final was a bit of a snorefest).

I checked out the new IRB Rugby Rankings. This is how they look at present. Expect NZ to back in #1 in six months. They are generally the best team between WCs.

1. RSA
2. NZ
3. The Pumas (Argentina)
4. The Poms
5. The Aussies
6. France
7. Irish
8. Scots
9. Fiji - had an amazing World Cup - beat Wales and gave the Boks a real fight.
10. Wales
