World Rankings as at 4th April 2011


There is currently no official system of World Rankings for Australian Football, as the international game is still mostly amateur, still maturing and there are often difficulties in nations having all their best players available. However, due to popular demand, since 2006 worldfootynews.com has been providing rankings. Here are the rankings as at 4th April 2011.

This is the first update since 18th November 2010, to include matches between Ireland and Great Britain, and Denmark and Sweden. The only movement in positions was Denmark slipping ahead of South Africa, the Danes moving into 7th place.
