GWC AND WORLD RUGBY RANKING TABLES

 

GWC AND WORLD RUGBY RANKING TABLES EXPLAINED


Main Points
1. The GWC Rankings and World Rugby Rankings are completely different systems.

2. World Rugby only ranks member nations. GWC ranks all nations.
3. World Rugby ranks all member nations in one list. GWC ranks nations in continental
    groups, except the ‘World’ group. Nations can belong to both the ‘World’ group or a
    continental group.
4. GWC drops a nation from any list if it does not participate in test rugby in any one

    Calendar year.     .
5.  World Rugby has their own system of determining rankings. GWC basically operates like
    a tennis ladder. If you defeat an opponent, you go one above that opponent on the ladder.
   If you draw the match the lower ranked nation goes just below the higher ranked nation.
   If you lose you stay where you are.
6. GWC World ranking table can be more subjective. Any nation that participates in cross
    continental test rugby automatically goes to the World Table. Nations that participate in

    the following Tier 1/2 competitions are automatically included in the World table

(a)   6 Nations International Championship

(b)   Rugby Europe Championship

(c)    The Rugby Championship

(d)   Asia Rugby Championship

(e)   Africa Cup

(f)     Pacific Nations Cup

Plus-USA, Canada and Argentina from the Americas

TIER 2-3 NATIONS TEST RUGBY POINT-SCORING DATA-Europe Updated 30/05/2023

 

 Tier 2-3 NATIONS POINT SCORERS. Compiled by Giles Etienne Updated to end of December 2022-Coming

Since Giles’ first point-scoring data charts were introduced in November 2020 he has worked on updating his records. These I will gradually revise as time permits. His original introduction is below.

‘I started to list the players who have scored in the 3rd unions opposing matches for more than 20 years now thanks to the emergence of internet.

But I had begun to be interested in statistics in rugby for much longer, actually as far back as I can remember. I must say that I do not know where it comes from, compiling the statistics in sport is not really in the French mentality, rather Anglo-Saxon. At the time (I was a teenager), I started making sheets about the players of the XV of France; today, I was able to develop the complete dictionary of all French internationals, with as complete data as possible and a photo of each one of them.

Then, gradually, I became interested in foreign players (I mean non-French!), first the All-Blacks, the British and other 1st unions, then the 2nd unions, and finally the 3rd unions, as the number of countries involved in test-matches increased.

Data below are from a systematic compilation of all the match sheets and reports I have gathered since 2001 (but quite complete only from 2011), plus various books, booklets, annuals and Unions web pages. I would like here to pay tribute for the work done by the continental associations and World Rugby to publish the match sheets; Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania; Americas (mostly South America) are still far behind for that. And many thanks also to everyone around the world who has the patience and kindness to respond to my requests.

These data are indicative (a lot of match sheets were incomplete or aberrant, and there are quite often discrepancies between newspapers reports on the same match), but fairly representative I think so. For the players of the years 2000~2010, the tries and point scored is probably by default, due to lack of data, except for some countries that at some times have published (website, booklets) complete historical statistics (such as Sweden, Malta, Latvia, Luxembourg, Hungary, etc. ...).’

COUNTRY DATA

This section hopes to cover each nation’s international rugby stats year-by-year.

This is a work in progress as I gradually upload the data for each nation. Click on the nation below and see where I’m up to.
If you can contribute to this data either by noticing errors or by adding to what I don’t have then contact me at rugint@bigpond.net.au
A special thanks to Stuart Farmer whose data on scrum.com for the main nations is, in most cases, my comparison.
