I suppose when we beat these teams above us it will look good.
Some you win, some you lose

What happens to the rankings after this weekends games, I can never work it out!

Assume we will go back up and Scotland back down after the Twickenham dry humping?

Do France go above us following Italy win?

Possibly.

No, because Italy are ranked substantially below France.

Had a look and the highest we can go is 5th. If we beat France and Scotland don't lose by 15+ against Italy then France end up 9th and Argentina go above them.

With the rankings as they are, I think the best possible group we could get would be something like

Ireland
Wales
Georgia
Romania*
Russia*/Uruguay*

Absolute worst case scenario would be

New Zealand
Wales
Argentina
Italy
USA*

(*Haven't yet officially qualified)

I don't think that's too bad; Argentina are definitely beatable. If we beat France on the weekend there's a reasonable chance they'd drop to 9th and we'd play them instead of Argentina in the "worst case scenario/group of death" group.

When I played with it, :D . we can go fourth if England beats Ireland and we beat France? The Scotland result doesn't matter as Itay as ranked so far down.

I'm glad you put the smiley - rugby rankings are far from my mind when doing so

A higher ranking probably helps, but in the end it is luck of the draw.

Say we fell to 9th, but got drawn in a group with Ireland and Scotland ... I would take that over being ranked 6th and being in a group with New Zealand and Argentina all day long.

I don't understand how Scotland get a thrashing but lose no points.

Its because England have at least eight more ranking points than them so because of that they don't lose any points. . It doesn't make much difference though. If we beat France we will move above them even if they beat Italy. It gets interesting if Ireland lose to England as we might just squeak ahead of them too and into a top seeding....perfect timing for the World Cup draw in May.
