England have progressed to the third position in the World Rugby Rankings following their convincing win over Ireland at Twickenham Stadium last weekend.

Eddie Jones' men ran an eight-try riot as they trounced Ireland 57-15 with Joe Cokanasiga scored a double while Elliot Daly, Manu Tuilagi, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Tom Curry and Luke Cowan-Dickie all touching down.

As a result, England gained 1.34 rating points that saw them surpass South Africa and Ireland to the third place. They now have 88.13 rating points with New Zealand (89.40) and Wales (89.43) at second and first place respectively.

Ireland's defeat saw them slip to the fourth place with 87.36 rating points while the Springboks are at fifth place with 86.83 rating points.

Scotland's 17-14 win over France at BT Murrayfield Stadium also helped them swap the places with Jacques Brunel's side as they rise to seventh place with 79.87.

The upcoming weekend will see France hosting Italy while Fiji and Wales will lock horns with Tonga and Ireland respectively.
