Yeah well done to the Poms for overtaking the Kiwis. They did beat them 2 games to 1 in the series and finished higher than them at the World Cup, so it is deserved I guess. I am surprised Canada has really fallen. Jamaica have really improved! France are 6th but I reckon they'd lose against Samoa and PNG, and maybe even Lebanon.

Rankings look about right to me. I think France may struggle to stay where they are, notwithstanding the number of SL players they have in their squad, there are a lot of hungry nations close behind them. I guess the Cook Islands don't get too many fixtures.

England Academy completed a 2-0 series whitewash of Australia Schoolboys with an 18-6 win at Leeds last night, keeping the young Aussies scoreless in the second half for an excellent win, based on a dominant defensive display.

That's good to see. How old are they - are they schoolkids too ?

Some good young guys in the Schools teams.

Well they wouldn't be if they were 19. The Wigan lads play for the U19s. I assume, though I don't know for sure, that it's the same for the other lads.
