Boks stay at No 5 in rankings

News24 - Tuesday 13th February, 2018

Cape Town - There was little movement in the top echelons of the official World Rugby rankings following Test action this past weekend.

Scotland, who beat France 32-26 in their Six Nations clash at Murrayfield, were the only side in the top 10 to improve their rating points.

The fraction under two-tenths of a point that Scotland picked up was however not enough for them to improve their position of seventh.

The Springboks remain at No 5 ahead of Wales, having moved up a position last week.

Results in the Six Nations could continue to affect South Africa's ranking as the Boks only start their Test season with a three-Test series against England in June.

The first Test is scheduled for Ellis Park in Johannesburg on June 9, followed by Tests at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein (June 16) and Newlands in Cape Town (June 23).
