Team Rankings in Rugby 05

Discussion in 'Rugby Video Games & Apps' started by Springbok, Feb 24, 2005.

  1. Probably, should've, and almost don't count.

    France have won their last two matches -- doesn't really matter how they've played or how they've achieved it.

    Also, and this is the power of French rugby -- they're unpredictable. They are always the most unpredictable side. So, until they get a consistent run of losses, they won't drop out of the top 5.

    But now, and this is directed to everyone, are we talking about the rankings of teams in Rugby 2005 or in general. Like that fat guy in the Death Star trench says, "Stay on topic. Stay on topic."

    I think you guys are getting carried away - esdpecially you Springbok.

    The ranking right now would be something like this..

    1. NZ
    2. Aus
    3. France/England
    4. Ireland/SA
    5. Wales

    I know Eng are poor at the moment, but could have easily won their last two games. In Aug we beat the crap out of SA - you weren't in the game - can't you remember that or not? And we would have beaten the Aus if we had a kicker that day as well! - Yes i know Aus played well in the 1st half, but they didn't get near our 22 in the 2nd half.

    If Eng travelled to SA now, it would be close, and on current performance, yes SA would win, but this form of England's is temporary. They still have a better forward pack than SA, and when all the injuries clear up, they'll have a better back line as well.

    Bottom line is NZ are far better, and Aus are always going to be strong.

    To all SA's - you're about 2 yrs away from being proper world beaters (not just one off games etc) - but that builds you up nicely for 2007, in which i think you'll be the favourites, and will win.

    Mate you are only as good as your last game. Don't give us that if you had a kicker you would beat australia/france. You lost and did not win. Yes england did play far better then south africa and did deserved to win. But please keep in mind that we played the tri nations, loads of domestic games and england just started playing. Basically all the boys in the NH are fresh and all the boys in the SH are tired. Example : south africa beating ireland in south africa twice. The irish boys were tired. Then when south africa came over ireland won. The only boys that seems to perform in the NH is Australia and New Zealand. But again they do not perform at 100% and is still managing to beat the NH teams. I think we all know how lost england is without jonny. And please keep in mind that I am english. Rebuilding mate, rebuilding, nobody stays at the top for 4 years these days. I will not be surprised if wales are on top of the world in a years time. And I hope they are because its good for rugby in general.

    I don't entirely agree with the whole "on current form" thing......I still think England deserves to be top 5...They're the side I take most satisfaction in beating (Oz a close second).
