16/06-Update-USA's win over Scotland has really upset the GWC rankings. Formerly in 20th they zoom up to 3rd pushing Scotland and 17 other nations down one point. Crazy! Ireland's win over Australia sees them back into the No.1 position in the World, pushing the Aussie's back into 2nd.

Note: For New Zealand to gain the No.1 spot they will have to rely on Australia defeating Ireland in the 3rd test. This will mean that NZ will have the opportunity to play Australia in July and if they win then they overtake Australia. If Australia loses to Ireland again New Zealand will have to wait until November to strike.
