Sri Lanka have climbed nine places in the last two weeks after wins over Chinese Taipei, Thailand and Sri Lanka

With 10 matches across Europe and Asia over the last seven days there have been some big climbs and falls in the IRB World Rankings, with Sri Lanka and Moldova enjoying the biggest with six-place gains.

Moldova ran out comfortable 38-18 winners over their hosts Ukraine in Odessa on Sunday to climb to 30th, while Sri Lanka’s wins over Thailand (45-7) and Kazakhstan (48-19) to win the HSBC Asian 5 Nations Division I title has lifted them to a new high of 38th.

By winning Division I on home soil with a perfect record, Sri Lanka have kept their hopes of Rugby World Cup 2015 qualification alive as they will play in the Top 5 in 2014 when the Asia 1 qualifier will be determined.
