Fiji has moved up in the World Rugby ranking from 10th to 9th place.

This comes after Fiji’s win against Samoa and Argentina’s loss against Wales in the June Test Series last weekend.

Meanwhile, England have slipped below Australia into fourth place after their South African tour began with a 42‑39 defeat to the Springboks.

It is the first time in two years that England have been this low on the ladder, and the pressure will be on this weekend to get back to winning ways and ensure that the tour is not lost.

South Africa remain behind Scotland in seventh place.

New Zealand remain in first place, Ireland in second place and Australia in third place.

With a number of summer tests going on over the next few weeks, the order of the rankings could look very different by the start of July.
