While they won’t be competing this weekend at the Rugby World Cup, the Flying Fijians have an opportunity to achieve their highest-ever world ranking if certain outcomes in other matches align favorably.

Fiji has the potential to reach as high as fifth in the world rankings if their Pool C rivals, Wales and Australia, end their match in a draw, and both England and Scotland suffer losses.

However, in the event of a draw between Wales and Australia, Fiji would ascend one position, matching their previous best ranking of seventh, at the expense of the Welsh.
