Top 10 International Rugby Teams

The Top Ten

1 New Zealand

all blacks have been ranked number one in the offical rankings many times

This is common sense. People who vote here don't read the category. They just vote for there Favourite, not for the actual best.

Hey Ireland could never beat NZ at there national sport. NZ has 2 world cups under its belt and DID NOT CHEAT in the 2011 RWC final!
And why is Scotland 3rd on this list I suppose all you northern hemisphere idiots just vote for your own teams.

NZ is the best and I live there and also who can resist their cute Kiwi birds? LET'S GO NZ ALL BLACKS!

2 Ireland

We're good not quite 1 but it might be a different story after the world up ireland

Yaaa The Irish team won 56-19 against Italy in Rome a couple of days ago. We have beaten the All Blacks a few times which is a phenomenal feat since they are undoubtedly the best team In the world... Overall Ireland is very strong team for such a small country and has many very talented players. Take Johnny Sextons drop goal against France. That was complete skill.

whats the win/loss for ireland worldwide?... haha

New Zealand undoubtedly the world all time best. Great to see Ireland get their act together. Potential's been knocking on the door for many years. Just needed greater perspective and the combination of a union who knows what it takes to compete.

3 England

Number 1 :we beat New Zealand who are first on your ranking therefor we or England should be first at least for now we are on amazing form england should be number 1

England beat New Zealand and are now in the FINAL! Good luck, boys!

At least they lost to the best. Very proud to be English right now, but have to say congratulations to RSA. Well done boys. In the end you were the strongest and best team.

England, number 4? Argentina is ranked 4th, England is ranked 7th I think. Interesting that the top 4 in the rankings are from the southern hemisphere. One commentator said Michael Brown is the best fullback in the world. England didn't even make it out of the group stage. I think that England rugby at the moment... SUCKS!

4 South Africa

In my opinion South Africa should be number 2. They play with passion, proved a lot of people wrong they make and correct their mistakes in a game. Not good enough to be above New Zealand but they sure deserve second place

The bokke are just the best. South African lives and breathes rugby. Rugby is an emotional history and has changed so many things in our country. This sport absolutely unites us.

South Africa is the best rugby team... everyone who watch RWC saw that... all countries should Bow for us

Is this for real? South Africa third and Ireland second? How many world cups have Ireland won again? As far as I remember there is only one European team that has ever won the Rugby's biggest show piece. I respect New Zealand, they deserve to be at the top but South Africa has to be second.

5 Australia

Australia. Number 5! They will win it this year. We should at least be in third place

Why Even Watch Them, Its Like Watching Tennis With 15 Crying Men With YELLOW (not gold) YELLOW tops and YELLOW skirts with there YELLOW wands and there YELLOW tricycles.

Best team out off the kick of and back three good under high ball

How is Ireland, England and South Africa in front of Australia?

6 Wales

Should be second behind New Zealand. No way should Ireland be up there

Wales claim to be better than England, this is a lie. England have won more six nations, have beaten Wales more times than wales beat England and England have won the World Cup and Wales have not (ever), they have never even come 2nd

Wales will never be better than Scotland at anything. Oh perhaps one thing 'something to do with wellies and sheep'

I am South African, but I know that Wales is by far, the best Northern Hemisphere team in the world. They should be 5th

7 Scotland

Scotland have proved that they have the talent and the mind set to winaustralia had been lucky that day but then its you loose you are out and even if he best team in the world is out that does not make scotland any worse but on the day they performed and they delivered, unlucky the decision went against them in the last minute

Obviously from English people, Scotland are in the quarter finals 2015, where are England? So Scotland are in the top 8. Simple mathematics.

What? Scotland are the worst team in the world

Scotland nearly lost to Samoa

8 Canada

Fairly Strong Team

Canadians rock

best team

Heck yea eh

9 Georgia

Georgia is the best

Rugby is life in Georgia!

Georgian national team has extremely powerful and highly dedicated players.They will achieve even greater things soon.

The best team in the world

10 France

This list is a joke, France have 13 six nations titles and 3 WC finals, wales and scotland have none...

Definitely France was in the cup against New Zealand and should have been put 2 or 3 on the top ten national teams

Sorry, scratch what I said but France should be in top 5

No argument about New Zealand sorry for what I said

The Contenders

11 Kenya

Kenya are horrible at rugby union but are kinda good at sevens

Kenya is very strong and consistent in its performance

Kenya are really good at sevens.

They are really strong and trying

12 Argentina

Argentina is ranked fourth in the world you idiots, they are better than Ireland, England, Scotland and Italy

Definitely better than Scotland, Wales, France, and Ireland

The best team after the big three. Go pumas!

How is Scotland ahead if they are one of the worst in 6 nations?

13 Samoa

Fiji is better than Tonga and Samoa because Fiji bet both of them

Fiji tops the Pacific. I'm surprised how this is ranked.

Samoa is the best of the pacific islanders

MANU! Samoa had a close game with the ABs.

14 United States

They won with New Zealand or not? just go to www.,which rugby team is the best"

15 Fiji

Fiji should be higher than this, they should be placed before Italy, surely

Fiji should be numerous 1

14? This ranking is CANCER

Fiji are class.

16 Tonga

MMT vs ENGLAND, Tonga almost caught up to England in the semi-finals in 2017. They're are a really good team. Don't disrespect another team/country.

The best team in the world

Tonga should not be here

17 Spain

They don't play rugby

They do play rugby and they are quite good at it.

What! Spain doesn't even play rugby you newbie!

18 Romania

Proud of them

19 Italy

Good defense

Never won 6 nations

20 India

INDIA is rising in all sports as well as rugby.

21 Japan

The Japanese rugby team was beat South Africa and Samoa rugby team. So, they are best.
