Coetzee take Boks from No3 to No6 in 21 months

As it is not enough that we had to endure another dismal season from Coetzee Springboks we have to see that the Springboks have now slipped to No 6 on the World Rugby rankings as well.

Coetzee have managed to take the Springboks from No3 in the world when he took over to Nr 6 within 21 months. This came after another lost this past Saturday against a second string Wales team in Cardiff.

They can be lucky not to have drop below Wales who is at No7 at this stage but surely after the Six Nations we could see the Springboks sitting at number 7 or 8 depending what France also do.

Wales have also received an improved rating from 80.98 to 81.76, but remain seventh.
