Rugby's latest world ranking was announced on the 12th, and Japan won three consecutive test matches from last month.

The world ranking of rugby is updated weekly by the international headquarters “World Rugby”, and the latest ranking was announced on the 12th.

Japan won the championship for the first time in eight years in three consecutive wins against Fiji, Tonga and the United States in a test match held last month as a Pacific Nations Cup from six countries in the Pacific region.

From these results, Japan moved up two places from the previous time to 9th, the highest ever.

Japan's ninth place is the first time in three and a half years since February 2016.

In addition, New Zealand was ranked first in New Zealand, Wales was second, and Ireland was third, but England led by Japan's former head coach, Eddie Jones, moved up one place and came fourth. South Africa, having a test match with Japan on May 6, moved down one place to fifth.
