Kenya Simbas drops two places in the latest World Rugby rankings released on Monday at 1 pm after losing 43-34 to Hong Kong in their second test on Saturday, August 26, 2017.

Simbas are now 27th down from 25th with 56.21 points.

Having picked up 1.15 points, Hong Kong moves up two places to match their previous best of 22nd in the rankings, leapfrogging Germany and Canada in the process, the latter of the two now at an all-time low of 24th.

The victory came after a 19-19 draw in the first test six days earlier.

Matt Roslee scored the five penalties for the visitors as well as adding the three conversions with Dayne Dans, Alex Wai-Shing and Kyle Sullivan scoring the tries.

Darwin Mukidza scored all Kenya’s kicks with Samson Onsomu, Davies Chenge and Tony Onyango crossing over in the second half.

A fifth straight win for South Africa has taken them above Ireland and up to third in the World Rugby Rankings.

New Zealand are unchanged, on 95.21 points, at the top of the rankings after withstanding a fearsome challenge from a fired-up Australia.
