Wales go to the top of World Rugby after Australia Crush New Zealand

It will be celebration time in Cardiff as Wales go to the top of the world rankings after the All Blacks were beaten 47-26.



The official World Rugby table won’t be updated until the completion of this weekend’s Test programme so Warren Gatland’s charges could lose their new-found status if they are defeated by England at Twickenham tomorrow in the first of their four warm-up matches ahead of the World Cup.

However, the metrics that World Rugby use to calculate the rankings have seen the All Blacks slip below Wales for the time being.

Wales coach Gatland has picked a near first XV for that clash and they’re odds-on favourites to beat an experimental England side.

New Zealand only held a 1.58 point lead over Wales in the rankings ahead of today’s match with Australia.
