Annual Rankings Refresh
The IFNA World Netball Rankings has just been refreshed by statistician David Kendix who devised the rankings specifically for international netball.
It is worth noting that
a) The gap between Australia and New Zealand has narrowed to just 8 points.
b) Fiji have jumped up to number 5. With South Africa behind them at 6 and Malawi now dropped down to 7. In the middle, Northern Ireland are heading up and are now at 12 and finally at the bottom we see Lesotho making an entrance.
c) Two countries, St Vincent and The Grenadines and Maldives have lost their ranking, having played insufficient matches during the past three years. They now have a rating in the second table.
d) Three countries, Antigua, St Kitts and Nevis and the USA have lost their rating, having played no matches during the past three years.
