The GWC Rugby Rankings is my system for rankings rugby nations at the international level. There are two main categories, or 'tables' as I call them. There is the 'World Table' open to any country that plays outside its georgraphical continent, and then a table for nations within a geographical region. It works as a simple 'tennis' ladder. You replace the team you defeat. There is some jigging of places at the end of a tournament, or end of a test series, to reflect the real team's placing.The system is better explained at http://www.rugbyinternational.net/, scroll down to 'Important Rugby Stuff', then rankings. For the history of my rankings go to the menu at the left.
