I suppose it gives Farrell something to aim for come February!
I presume those rankings could change depending on the results at the weekend.

Absolutely, whoever wins the final will be #1 and places 2-4 will be decided by winning margins

Yes. And SA down to 3rd if they lose.

England would need to lose by 15+ to fall behind a winning Wales or else Wales would need to get 15+ win v NZ

They’re good and were unlucky to not qualify for the RWC

Would have qualified for the RWC, but had administrative issues. 2 of their players were not eligible as they had played for France U20s back when they were still a capture team. Were docked 40 points as these players played in all 8 games in the Rugby Europe Championship.

The coronavirus could have a dramatic effect on the rankings with the WC seedings being fixed in late November.
A 0-0 draw at home to Italy, for example, would not be good at all.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Pretty sure they've said that any postponed games, even if they're declared a 0-0 draw, won't be used for calculating the ratings.

did that apply to Italy vs nz in the world cup? or is it just a 6 nations thing. That would have given Italy a huge rankings boost

The coronavirus is likely to cause mass disruption to the summer tours and maybe even to the up coming autumn games.

If that is the case could they not delay the world cup seeding's or is the time set in stone?

If CV19 behaves like your typical flu virus it's impact could start to wane in a similar way as the temperatures begin to rise in the NH.
IE peaks in February and tapers off by April.
Here's hoping.

Yes it did. If Italy had really managed a 0-0 draw with BNZ in the World Cup there would have been a 2.0 ratings exchange but that didn’t happen - BNZ’s ranking the Monday after the cancelled game was the same as it was the previous Monday.

It's a completely different type of virus. Not the same family. And it looks like it can reinfect.

Nobody knows if temperature will slow it down
