Americas Rankings – May 14 2017

Test match rugby this weekend saw changes in the Americas Rankings. Gains were made by Chile, Guyana, Mexico and Uruguay. Of note is Mexico gaining an record high ranking of 9th in the Americas.

Chile’s home win over Brazil sees a slight gain for Chile at the expensive of Os Tupis. The home win takes Los Cóndores from 53.91 to 54.56 points. It translates into a slight gain to now be just over 5 points below Canada. Brazil remain above Paraguay.

Had the Paraguayans upset Uruguay then there may have been more alterations in the Top 7. Instead Paraguay’s home defeat at the hands of Los Teros sees a slight loss for Paraguay with Uruguay benefitting. Paraguay have fallen from 49.46 to 49.38 points. This sees Uruguay going slightly further above Canada from 61.24 to a new ranking of 61.42 points.

Also losing at home on Saturday was Bermuda. The island nation’s heavy defeat to Mexico sees Bermuda losing a full rankings point. Bermuda’s updated ranking sees a fall from 39.22 to 38.23 points. Mexico gained the points in exchange thereby rising from 45.62 to 46.61 points. This sees Mexico overtaking Trinidad & Tobago to now be 9th while Bermuda trade places with Jamaica.

Also falling is Barbados, dropping below Peru to now be 17th in the Americas. This is a result of the country’s home loss against Guyana this weekend. In winning there is a slight gain for Guyana but no positional change.

Also taking place this weekend was USA South vs Cayman Islands, a Rugby Americas North fixture. With the USA South not being a test team rankings points were not on the line.

Test match rugby will take place again next weekend. A derby sees Bahamas at home to the Turks & Caicos Islands. In South America Brazil play away to Uruguay and Paraguay do so to Chile. Americas Rankings will be up for grabs in all three matches.
