ScrumQueens Test Ranking: July 2013

The first ScrumQueens World Ranking for women's test rugby, as devised by Serge Piquet. Includes all test matches played from 13th June 1982 to 30th June 2013.

 

Despite finishing third in the Six Nations this season, England are top of the first ScrumQueens World Test Ranking. Although the most recent tests carry a greater weight in the calculations, good performances in last year's Autumn Internationals, and wins in previous Six Nations have given England a ranking ahead of France and Ireland.

New Zealand are only third and Australia 11th mainly because they have played little (or, in Australia's case, no) test rugby since the last World Cup.
