Kenya maintained position 28 in the World Rugby ranking released on Monday 6 August 2018 following their inactivity over the weekend.

But across the borders Uganda improved by one to move from spot 37 to 36 following their comprehensive 67-12 win over Tunisia in a third round Africa Gold Cup cum 2019 World Cup qualifier In Kampala.

As a result of the heavy defeat, Tunisia plummeted down from 40th to 43rd which allowed Sri Lanka, Morocco and Colombia to move a position up each to settle at 40th to 42nd spots, in that order.

Table topping Namibia in this years six-nation Africa Gold Cup table stays 23rd in spite of their 58-28 beating of host Zimbabwe on Saturday. They gained little due to the Sables low ranking of 45.

Kenya currently sits second in the log with 12 points and, were the qualifiers to end today, they would head to France in November for a four-team repechage with Canada, Hong Kong and Germany, teams ranked in positions 21, 22 and 29 in the latest ranking. 

Ranking as at Monday 6 August

Namibia - 23

Kenya – 28

Uganda – 36

Tunisia – 43

Morocco - 41

Zimbabwe – 45
