    Swap Italy and Wales around.

    Italy is a third tier. No way are the Azzurri at the same level with England and Argentina. England have not played after winning the WC in 2003, but I would still consider them 1st tier.

    In my opinion, this should be the ranking (in alphabetical order):

    1) Australia, England, France, New Zealand, South Africa
    2) Argentina, Ireland.
    3) Fiji, Italy, Samoa, Scotland.
    4) Canada, Romania, Tonga, USA

    Wales would be between 2 and 3, and England between 1 and 2 IMO.

    That was what I wanted initially, but thought it would be easier to have basic categories.

    Apparently the IRB don't agree with you, since they're about to trial the new rugby laws for next year's Test matches.
