Argentina’s shock win on Saturday is set to stretch the Springboks’ lead in the world rankings to more than five points, with the All Blacks dropping to third.
This past week, the Springboks already saw their lead at the top of the World Rugby rankings increase despite not playing a Test match since last year’s World Cup final.
Now, according to Rugby4Cast, there are set to be further significant changes after Argentina claimed a historic first-ever victory over the All Blacks on Saturday.
HUGE MOVEMENTS IN THE RANKINGS
New Zealand will drop down the rankings to 3rd after that defeat, their joint lowest ever position with November 2003.
