Cape Town - Results from this past weekend's Six Nations had little impact on the top of the official World Rugby rankings.

The top 10 remains unchanged despite wins for Ireland, England and Wales, in second, third and fourth respectively.

However, second-placed Ireland did boost their rating score by 0.55 of a point following their 22-13 win over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Joe Schmidt's side now have 89.92 points - 1.9 more than England, who received no reward for their crushing 44-8 win over France - and 2.62 fewer than top-ranked New Zealand.

The Springboks remain where they finished 2018 - in fifth place (84.58 points), with the Wallabies one spot below them (82.40).

Top 20 in the current World Rugby rankings:

1. New Zealand 92.54
2. Ireland 89.92
3. England 88.02
4. Wales 87.55
5. South Africa 84.58
6. Australia 82.40
7. Scotland 81.30
8. Fiji 77.95
9. Argentina 77.05
10. France 77.02
11. Japan 75.24
12. Georgia 73.93
13. USA 73.66
14. Tonga 73.02
15. Italy 72.75
16. Samoa 68.78
