The world rugby rating has changed dramatically after a beautiful autumn tour.
Irish and England teams had an unbeaten tour which helped them to decrease the gap between leaders.
Despite a 26-27 defeat to England,
South Africa managed to maintain first place. The defeats of Wales and Scotland proved to be enough for the first place.
France celebrated a historic victory over them in New Zealand. Recall that since 2009 France has defeated all blacks for the first time. As a result, they moved to fifth place.
With New Zealand after losing to Ireland and France they have dropped to world no.2 after coming into the Autumn Nations Series as the no.1 ranked side.
