Rankings – England 1stXV

The Ruggas.co.za rankings are based on the performance of the team AND the opponents they play. I feel that a team cannot be ranked amongst the top schools in the country and then not play against them at all.

Our rankings are done similar to the IRB method. The winning team gains exactly the same points the losing team lose. We do however penalise a team with 1.5 ranking points if they do play against a school with more than 10 ranking points below them, whether they win or lose. This ensures that a team cannot be ranked outside their "performance bracket".

The beginning of each season will see a lot of volatility as the current season's performances of a team may differ a lot with that of the previous year. Another factor is that teams are looking for "easy" games to first test selections. If you play a match it counts. If it is a 20 minutes a side popcorn rugby or a 35 minutes match. It all counts.

One last thing, this ranking is done to be used only as a discussion topic. I do not claim it to be the official South African Ranking and always compare the Ruggas.co.za ranking with other websites' rankings. Use it or ignore it.

As with the start of the New Zealand rankings earlier this year I am aware that some schools are not on the list and will adapt and add schools as we carry on. At Ruggas.co.za we welcome all help and advice. Please send all information to news@ruggas.co.za.
