World Rugby women’s rankings predictions: South Africa v Kenya

  • +1

World Rugby has published the rankings permutations for the upcoming women’s international test between South Africa and Kenya, which takes place at the Danie Craven Stadium, Stellenbosch on 16 August, 2021 KO 15:00 local time. Live stream available on Springboks.Rugby

Key highlights:

  • It is not possible for South Africa to gain any rating points due to the 19.72-point differential between the teams before home weighting is factored in
  • South Africa can only drop down the rankings if they are beaten by more than 15 points
  • Russia and Kazakhstan will each move up a place if that happens with the Springbok Women falling to 15th
  • Kenya will move above Trinidad and Tobago and into 24th if they win by such a margin, equalling their best-ever position.
  • But they will remain as they are, in 25th, if they win by 15 points or less
