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
