Happening right now in the world Rugby cup 2023
On Saturday 5th August, Fiji achieved a remarkable victory over Japan in Tokyo with a score of 35-12, concluding a perfect run in the Pacific Nations Cup just before the start of the Rugby World Cup.
The Flying Fijians have swept past Tonga, Samoa, and Japan this summer with their attacking flair and depth, despite the hosts not being helped by an early red card, resulting in their victory on Japanese soil.
Warren Gatland’s team, in danger of falling out of the top 10 in the world if they lost, managed to secure all five points and prevent a potential first Six Nations whitewash since 2003. Italy are currently the top contenders to win their ninth wooden spoon in the past decade as they continue to remain winless in this year’s Championship. The defeat to Wales has resulted in Fiji surpassing them, causing them to drop to 14th place in the rankings.
As of now, the current standings in the 2023 Six Nations table reflect the rankings, with Ireland and France maintaining their positions in first and second place. In order to become the world’s number-one team, Les Bleus, who had inflicted a record 53-10 defeat on England, required Ireland to make a mistake in their Sunday’s match against Scotland.
Despite facing a difficult challenge, Ireland managed to defeat Scotland 22-7 and maintain their position at the top.
As a result of the win, Ireland’s rating increased by 0.49 of a point to reach 91.82, while France’s rating improved by exactly one point, bringing their total to 90.47 points.
Hence, the difference between the top two teams in the world has slightly decreased to a margin of 1.35 points. Scotland and England maintain their positions in fifth and sixth place, respectively, but their ratings have decreased to 82.77 and 82.12.
Switzerland achieved an improved rating of 54.67 points and secured 28th place in the rankings by defeating Ukraine 59-32 in Zagreb during the Rugby Europe Trophy. Switzerland currently holds an almost insurmountable advantage in the top position of the Trophy table, having attained a maximum of 15 points from their initial three encounters. Ukraine stays 36th in the rankings, eight places behind.
The Webb Ellis Cup is the prize presented to the winners of the Rugby World Cup, named after William Webb Ellis, who is credited with creating the game of rugby football. The trophy is also referred to as just, The Rugby World Cup. The trophy was chosen in 1987 as an appropriate cup for use in the competition.
